Like the once shrouded in mystery, creative team at Maison Martin Margiela

(before the recent appointment of John Galliano as creative director)

the avant-gardist designers of Los Angeles based, denim fashion house 69

are an anonymous collective.

Identifying the aesthetic sensibility of the clothes

is of more import than the individual identities of the designers.

 

Although the ‘who are they?’

information about the designers remain a guarded secret,

there is no question as to the spirit of the brand’s construct:

‘fashion- boundary push’, conceptual, minimalist, unisex denim wear.

 

Of interest is the brand name-  the number 69

which within a contemporary interpretation of numerology,

alludes to the expected differences between partners of any relationship couple.

Yet also acknowledges a balance created, a yin and yang complement

generated by a full partnership, an equal exchange of ‘gives and takes’.

The 69 aesthetics of unisex clothing speaks to this numerological sense of

balance, equality, reciprocity.
