French fashion house Maison Margiela was originally founded in 1988 by the elusive Belgian designer Martin Margiela. Currently helmed by British designer John Galliano, the label plays with themes of deconstructionism and reinterpretation. The brand fuses a grunge-twist of asymmetric detailing with an unconventional elegance to everyday essential pieces. Continuing to subvert classic ideals of beauty, Maison Margiela’s AW17 shoe offering includes these black pumps. Made in Italy from black calf leather, these shoes feature a pointed toe, an ankle length and a distinguishing cut out heel.
