Maison Martin Margiela x H&M | Preview

ast Wednesday I attended the press preview of the most anticipated collaboration between the Swedish high-street H&M and Masion Martin Margeila. I had a look at every single piece and to be honest it’s one of the best collaborations so far, as I saw from the released campaigns, video teasers its way much better in reality, from the quality of the fabrics, to the cuts and detailing that reflects the style and spirit of Margeila!

         The collection is not for the faint hearted, as you probably saw the pieces are slouchy, deconstructed, and over-oversized. It’s everything Avant garde!

        We got our eyes on few pieces that will sure make you the focal point everywhere you go. Starting with the disco ball skinnies (perfect piece to get the party started! Maybe for New Year eve?) The asymmetrical crêpe Red dress is an amazing show-stopper piece for your coming occasion simple and remarkable. The nude bra bodysuit is a statement adds to your wardrobe (if you dare). And we’re totally in love with the inside-out biker jacket (Season must have). And for the shoes I'm sure loads of you are dying to get their hands more like feet in the leather acrylic transparent plastic heels (Available in Black, Red and Beige)!

        As for the guys, we’re in love with the following: the hand knitted wool jumper, the camel 3 piece suit! (Perfect to wear the whole look; or mix and match the pieces). And for the accessories the sequin scarf is an astounding piece to lift up your boring black tux , and the high-top leather sneakers are a must have for every sneakers lover ( that’s me) to have , this might be crazy but maybe in both colours ( white and Red ) men can be obsessed with shoes as well !!

Check out the images with Prices and double check what’s going be on your List! Just be ready in line to fight for it by November the 15th. We feel there is going to be blood, sweat and tears.
