Design, AI, and fashion are colliding at South Coast Plaza this month. The catalyst? The split-toe Tabi shoe, introduced by Maison Margiela in the Spring 1989 collection. The exhibit takes visitors on a journey through this definitive piece of Maison iconography from its inception to its contemporary reinventions under Creative Director John Galliano. 

The Tabi takeover is irreverent, informative, and personalized — thanks to a generative AI experience that stretches the boundaries of what a Tabi can be. The  installation is covered in distinctive Tabi footprints, tracing a path of discovery from the Jewel Court rotunda to the Maison Margiela store, where an expanded selection of iconic silhouettes are exclusively for sale. 

Within the pop-up, 20 pairs of archival Tabis are displayed chronologically including the 2014 Tabi ice skates made in collaboration with John Wilson. The pop-up space features two digital stations where clients take a selfie and follow prompts to create their own completely unique digital Tabi. 

Jewel Court, South Coast Plaza. Through April 15
