The iconic ankle boots of Maison Margiela are renewed for spring summer 2020
The first Tabi ankle boots they debuted on the catwalk with the collection spring summer 1989, on the occasion of the very first fashion show of Maison Margiela. An important debut, which, of course, helped to write part of the house’s history. The unmistakable Tabi design – inspired by the tip of the traditional Japanese stockings, from which it takes its name – has since been considered one of the greatest classics of Maison Margiela. And it has been, over the years, the subject of numerous reinterpretations, with experimentation on materials – like metallic leather and neoprene – and shapes – see the cuissard version or the sneakers made in collaboration with Reebok. A continuous evolution, perfectly in line with the brand’s avant-garde and rebellious spirit, which continues today with a new proposal for the spring summer 2020. Maison Margiela, in fact, has just unveiled the new Tabi, characterized by a thinner line and from a innovative banana heel to make the silhouette more elegant, without forgetting the typical white stitching on the back. Available in version ankle boot, with the classic closure composed of hook buttons hidden by the flap, and in version décolleté, the new Tabi can already be purchased on the website www.maisonmargiela.com.
