The "artisanal" collection, initiated in Martin Margiela's second collection (autumn-winter 1989-90), is made from clothing or recovered objects transformed into clothing or accessories.

For the Fall-Winter 2004 collection, regular copies of Chanel tweed jackets were cut in half and assembled into asymmetric clothing. The emblematic gold chain Gabrielle Chanel used to weight her hems left her traditional interior location to decorate the outside like a garland. The whole is unified by a black dye.

The tribute to the Chanel suit, an archetype of late 20th century fashion, is a recurring theme among many designers.
