When the rumors of the Maison Martin Margiela + H&M collab started of course I was very excited, but in the back of my mind it was like "this will only be pretty for the eyes, not on my body". I just want to quickly say how impressed I am with this collection, not only is it beautiful - as predicted - but I can actually see myself wearing quite a few of the pieces (jackets from first and second photos are soooo mine). Yes, I will be braving the line when this collection hits stores. Just like with the Lanvin collab from a while back, I simply LOVE when designers go the "H&M" route but stay so true to the style of the actual high fashion brand they design for. I don't think that every collab works (wasn't a fan of Versace x H&M, for example) but when it actually does work - it works indeed, as so perfectly demonstrated  for us here in this very lookbook. Thoughts on this collection?

  6. I'm also excited about it, for the first time over the last 3 years HM & designers collaborations... But somehow I feel like buying some men items, I find them particularly appealing!

  14. I totally agree with you regarding wearability. Most designer collaborations are unique and appealing to the eye, but are most of them actually wearable on a day-to-day basis? Lovely, inspiring photographs! Thanks for sharing :) x

  16. Great post !

    I talked about Maison Margiela for H&M on my blog as well and I really can't wait to see the pieces, having the same in mind as you I would expect it to be one of the important points since it will be in H&M stores right ? or do you think we can expect shapes?

    Love,
