Marc Le Bihan 1920s Inspired Beaded Gown
The work of fashion designer Marc le Bihan, eludes easy classification. Like those who inspire him - Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo and Martin Margiela - he is a rigorous conceptualist, a believer in timeless fashion rather than transitory trend. He refuses to develop his collections according to a digestible commercially friendly theme. "This bores me," he says. "What interests me more than a cycle of fashion, is the gradual composition of a wordrobe".
