Passage number 42 from Martin Margiela's autumn-winter 1990-91 collection is a checkered shirt similar to the lumberjack's, mounted and twisted on an adjoining black jumper. The drapery is set in a tourniquet. This top is accompanied by a long skirt cut into men's trousers.
The hybrid garment, neither really a jumper nor quite a shirt, is one of Martin Margiela's signatures. The model of this shirt was taken up again for the exhibition "The world according to its creators", presented at the Palais Galliera in 1991, the first carte blanche offered to the Belgian designer.
