So as you may know or can read, I went to the pre-shop at H&M for their latest designer collaboration with Margiela. The line is basically a round-up of Margiela’s biggest hits over the past two decades, so for those of us with (lesser) aspirations like owning an absurdly oversized coat by MMM this was our one and only chance do so at a more acceptable price-point.
In all honesty, H&M isn’t always a fav of mine especially when a known designer comes in because the items often seem more like novelties and end up a waste of time, sanity, money, and let’s be honest: their sizes are rarely forgiving. Thank you, Martin Margiela and your penchant for women in enormous menswear. I have always wanted clothing, well-cut clothing, that doubles as a blanket, bed, shelter — yet still holds a shape that reminds the public you aren’t homeless, it’s just how you dress. Also, with a blog named after the fact that I rarely wear colour, I swoon at lines made up mostly of neutrals. All in all, this line was screaming for me to swim in it, pretend I am androgynous, and someone who casually wears Margiela.
Margiela x H&M Wool Jacket — Huf hat, Isabel Marant sneakers, Dannijo necklace
Margiela x H&M Sweater and Blazer — Fortune Favors the Brave necklace, Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ flats
Margiela x H&M Camel Coat and Jeans — it’s all eBay, bay-bay…
Thanks again to destructor and ever momager, Christianne, for the snaps.
