For our fifteenth Design Download, the inimitable John Galliano has generously donated the knitting pattern for a never-seen-before jumper, created exclusively for SHOWstudio in house at Maison Margiela. To enjoy it to its full potential, this pattern is best experienced via laptop or desktop.

This unique pattern embodies John Galliano's penchant for storytelling and was designed in the spirit of Recicla (the line and concept created by Galliano wherein the atelier meticulously deconstruct second-hand garments and lease them with new life). Simply take your own pre-existing shirts, bed sheets or tea towels, then rip, cut and tear following the instructions. Download the pattern and see your second-hand fabrics transform in the spirit of Maison Margiela, resulting in your very own jersey stitch ribbon Reclica knit sweater.
