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?
