For Autumn/Winter 2021, MM6 Maison Margiela moves into reverse mode. Revolved inside out, upside down and back-to-front, traditional pieces reveal new design dimensions for a reborn wardrobe inspired by these topsy turvy times. This collection began with a simple question: how do pieces transform when their iconic parts are slightly rearranged, or totally scrambled? The result is a complete macro/micro design reset.

Imagined to present the Spring Summer 2021 collection from Maison Margiela 6, this film echoes the first period of confinement. Designed by the MM6 team from home, the Spring Summer 2021 Collection meets the moment - questioning the corporate and embracing the domestic. Thought out as a « fake »  sequence shot, the scenes are linked one after the other in different sets within one and the same space.

Invited for the 5th time by "A Magazine Curated by" to create a series of short films around the vision  of Francesco Risso, Marni's artistic director and the guest curator for this new issue. Alexandre imagined different ways to amplify the content of the magazine and play with it. Recreating Marni's floor and walls office. Playing with  flying pages mis en scène like an ending film. Or  XXL printed paintings adjusted in a space to create a small theatre. 

With love for cinema, creativity and craftsmanship.

« A Magazine Curated By Francesco Risso is an analogue exploration of the print object through a myriad of visual and philosophical stimuli that question contemporary notions of living. The issue documents Francesco Risso’s boundless imagination, with a playful yet profound view of materiality, nature and the human spirit.»

Invited for the fourth time by the A Magazine Curated By team, Alexandre documented the image-making process of photographer Samuel Fosso, for his new series Autoportrait II (Fosso Fashion 2021) that appears inside A Magazine Curated by Grace Wales Bonner, and can be seen at #ExpoFosso shown at La Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris until March 2022. Shot with two cameras (analog and digital), Alexandre explores image juxtaposition in the edit room with two short films / director’s cut. For the magazine he signs a film using only images and words from the contributors.

Reviving a lost classic, A Magazine presents a limited-edition reprint of A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela (2004), nearly two decades after its original release. The 2021 replica features original content preserved from cover to cover, with matching paper stock and cover treatments. Each new issue contains 1 of 6 unsigned archive prints of photography by Mark Borthwick, Anders Edström, Marina Faust, Jonathan Hallam, Paul Helbers & Ola Rindal, or Inge Grognard & Ronald Stoops. A charitable donation to Sea Watch and RIACE has been made in the name of the contributing artists. A testament to the ongoing relevance of the founding ideals of the Maison Martin Margiela, this document celebrates the previously anonymous talents of the house. A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela lays bare their dedication to such phenomena as the deconstruction of garment-making and the disruption of classical ideals in photography, street casting, unconventional beauty, subversive communication, and a Dadaist approach to the very concept of fashion and object design.

“The starting point of this project was the desire to create a digital extension to the physical edition of A Magazine Curated by Lucie and Luke Meier. Invited for the second time by the magazine's team, the digital object had to take the graphic codes of this new issue and allow the viewers to access a new content that would enhance his experience. Delivering the ins and outs of reflection and design but also developing certain topics by speaking through Lucie & Luke Meier but also Kelsey Lu, Mos Def, Mike Meiré, John Pawson, Heiko Keinath to name a few. »

R U B Y short film
Infos [+]

Similar to a naturalist short novel, R   U   B   Y highlights the openness to others, through the eyes of two young adults: Ruby and Paul. The film tries to sweep away the shyness, fear, mistrust, and lack of time we share in a more global way. The film opens on the sentence « I see you » from Avatar, and another way to talk about love. Doesn’t the beauty of love lie in our ability to see others and love them for what they are? As a soul mate or simply as another human being. Shot with 8 non-professional actors who embrace 8 roles, the character of Ruby maintains a distance from the rest of the world by keeping her sunglasses on. This distinctive sign, which leaves her on the margins of others, is a way to protect herself from looks and social networks. Don’t we say that «  eyes are the mirror of the soul »?

Biography

Alexandre Silberstein is a film and art director based in Paris.


Growing up and studying at Les Beaux-Arts in Paris gave him the opportunity to broaden his sense of artistic quest, that he now deepens in every project he’s working on.

His work plays with different types of disciplines from performance to sculpture, through film. Most of his projects are thought of as quests, stories, every detail being meticulously considered. 


Since 2019, he collaborates with A Magazine Curated By and has carte blanche to create short films around each issue in a very personal way, adapting his practice to every designer the magazine collaborates with.

Silberstein has collaborated closely with brands including Hermès, Louis Vuitton, MM6, Zara or Coperni, directing films around their shows, products or history.
