MAKER | Celebrating the Legacy of M/M Paris

A celebration of the creatives who remix their craft in thought-provoking new ways. 
We love Parisian designers M/M Paris (Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag) for their romantic and illustrative approach to design that’s free and whimsical—yet controlled and calculated.   
Their first job as a duo was designing the launch of Yohji Yamamoto’s Y range (Y-3) in 1993. Soon after, they fell into step with fashion photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin with whom they’ve been collaborating with on campaigns for brands like Givenchy, Balenciaga, and Calvin Klein ever since.
