Martin Margiela is the guest of H & M this winter for a very couture collection, now available in stores!
Edit November 15, 2012: That’s it, the collection is available in stores! If you go for a ride, come and share your impressions!
Original article of October 18, 2012: I will preach there is little the arrival of the visual top of the collection Martin Margiela for H & M , which left me somewhat skeptical about the percentage of “portability” of these giants coats in daily life.
Now today landed the pictures of the collection in full force At first glance, one recognizes the paw of the house Margiela: stripped cuts, scales games (he once produced a collection made dolls clothing enlargements), pleated fabric, drape, faded … Question colors, lots of white and neutral colors.
What parts should be preferred and how to adapt them to the rest of your wardrobe? Go for decryption:
Baggy (the revival)
Apart from that they look to cut legendary trolls, these hybrid kimono-chino-baggy tend owls, and especially so comfortable! If you wipe a tear of nostalgia thinking back to your skater period there is already some spring, jump at the chance to take two or three sizes below yours and to associate with high-hugging to refine the silhouette.
The curtains dresses
So here, I block. Prices are not yet known, but the collab ‘H & M are often above their usual rates, and I can not see myself breaking my piggy bank for air curtains rolled in myself. The black dress is perhaps the most obvious to wear … for a costume party “special robes”?
These have the easier air for the life of every day, if you are fans of oversized look. It will pay me dearly to carry the mantle quilt out of my home, but since I already spent my afternoon wrapped in my duvet on my couch like an old Indian who smokes a pipe, I can only welcome the idea.
The forms are very simple and it’s all about the iridescent materials and printed sets: flowers mixture, tie-dye, patchwork … The most obvious place to rest every day the middle with a touch of ethnic, the other two needed to have the gams long enough not to take them in feet.
These are the simplest parts to wear, but also the least crazy (even wearing the creator, as it is route). See for yourself if you are ready to pay the price for good basic “couture” with a little twist: the blazer imitation Kraft paper, white blouse or Quechua tent so big cuddly sweater.
As for accessories, there also we find simple shapes: big boots and shoes in plain leather wristwatch and white jewelry, expensive color at Maison Margiela.
You find it ugly and bland, or you founded for this collection, we can say that H & M has hit hard for this season!
It’s not every day that you can buy as original parts at a price “mass market” for those who are attracted by the refined extravagance Margiela, start blogging! For others … expect next year, maybe next collaboration H & M Will it visually more affordable.
