Fashion Watch: Maison Martin Margiela x H&M

by on October 23, 2012

New images of the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M women’s collaboration have hit the Internet today – take a look.

If you were expecting conventional fashion from this collaboration, you must be unfamiliar with the very unorthodox and quirky fashions that come out of the hands of Maison Martin Margiela design house. This collection is filled with the unusual cuts of fabric, surprising shapes and overt challenges to the definitions of womenswear and female fashion that MMM has become so recognizable for.

You may only know of Margiela from Kanye West or Rick Ross lyrics, and that’s fine. I’d be lying to you if I said that I thought this collection was profoundly genius or even wearable as a whole, because I would most likely not jump on board with too many of the outfits that are depicted here. Regardless, the quality looks absolutely amazing, and they’ve managed to stay true to the MMM aesthetic.

With that said, however, I would definitely wear an item or two from this collaboration. I absolutely love the red dress and those brown boots (but worn separately), those incredible reflective leggings seen in the main image (to be priced at $39.95), and maybe even that oddly shaped white button down.

The collection is slated to hit stores on November 15th.
