Maison Martin Margiela, the French fashion brand that’s known for its fashion-forward approach, what with its deconstructed and exaggerated clothing, has made a unusual move by deciding to collaborate with top global brand H&M. The Parisian house is popular for its quirky fashion styles such as manly tailoring for women, loosely-fitted trousers and pants, and even origami folds and pleats in skirts. Definitely, the Margiela for H&M was a major dream collaboration of sorts.
Top Maison Martin Margiela for H&M Collection Pieces
Fusion of Two dresses
Hitting the H&M store in November is the reedit of the original MMM piece, Fusion of two dresses that was worn by super model Mirte Maas. The one that’s included in the collection is close to the original piece, with silk still its main material, and wood blended with it on one lining and side. The ensemble is completed with diamond-styled studs.
With its light color and single left pocket in front, the shirt is one of the most in-demand MMM pieces at H&M. This can easily be paired with a pair of pencil cute jeans and finished off by grey pumps.
Men’s Leather Jacket
This leather jacket that’s meant for men is unique because of its creative construction of a number of belts of various colors stitched together by hand. This is an immensely popular coat, an original Maison Martin Margiela that gets requested by both men and women. Now, it’s bound to be a top selling MMM piece at H&M collection come November 15. This is best worn with jeans or even a pair of black pants.
Plexiglass Heel Wedge Shoes
Sure to be a seller at H&M is the Maison Martin Margiela Plexi Wedge Pump, which was designed and created with the MMM wedge shoes featured at Margiela Spring 2007 collection as its inspiration. This footwear accessory is a Maison Martin Margiela Classics that’s now available through H&M. It is the perfect match for red or orange knee-length hemmed print dress.
Martin Margiela is a top brand, no doubt. However, for many who has known H&M to have been a top high street apparel name that’s easier to wear compared to the former, it’s a big puzzle as to how Margiela and H&M collaboration will be received by by the public, especially people who have been used to H&M high street fashion offerings.
This coming November 15, consumers at least will be given a wonderful alternative of being able to wear re-edited Margiela pieces at H&M prices. People can make the most of the collaboration by wearing the best and most complementing pieces of both brands – or simply buy tamer Margiela for H&M pieces that suit their simpler tastes.
