Sotheby’s will sell a private collector’s archive of nearly 20 years of Maison Margiela garments in an expansive auction set to launch online. Spanning 1989 to 2009, the lot — dubbed “Hors Normes II” — includes nearly 200 ready-to-wear and couture garments. Accessories and head-to-toe runway looks will also be up for grabs.

Highlights include Martin Margiela‘s Fall/Winter 1998 plastic-coated dress with its original plastic bag still intact, as well as the designer’s famous Fall/Winter 1999 duvet coat, which was later re-created in Margiela’s collection for H&M. A full look from the Maison’s Fall/Winter 2004 collection, a full-length dress bearing a print of human hair paired with a fur necklace, comprises another notable inclusion.

Sotheby’s Martin Margiela “Hors Normes II” auction launches at the Sotheby’s website on March 3 and runs through March 9.
