I’m sure I must have said this before but…this is one H&M collaboration I am truly looking forward to!!! I love Maison Martin Margiela, but unfortunately don’t have the great fortune to have any of it in my closet – this is my chance. However I will not be doing the whole queuing up around the block business, I never have; I refuse to! But I will get at least 3 pieces, it is my mission!

“We are very happy to present MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA pieces with H&M, offering a new interpretation of our vision. The democracy of our fashion has always been at the centre of our creativity, and the collaboration with H&M allows us to push this instinct further. We will bring together the contrasting universes of the two houses in ways that will surprise all.” MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA

I guess the Swedish high street retailer wanted in on some democratic fashion, or is it just that Jay & Ye raved about them enough to give them some commercial buzz. I want some affordable Helmut Lang next! Jay, Ye, and H&M take note please!

MMM for H&M will be available in stores and online from November 15th.


Heiress, fashion icon and visionary Daphne Guinness also has a collection with cosmetic brand MAC, featuring nail polish, mascara, MAC’s famed lipglass (which Daphne is “obsessed with”).  The fashion muse was inspired by the Old Master painters like Titian, Zurbarán, and Michelangelo, the greyish green Hyperion Nail Lacquer came straight from the famous “Whistler’s Mother” painting!


A far cry from MAC’s usual bright/warm tones, Daphne says it’s ALL about the cool tones. “I’m not a real primary color person, and warm colors do not become me. Anyway we can’t all be bouncing along the beach looking sunkissed. I’m never gonna be that girl. I wish, but it ain’t gonna happen!” The campaign shot by David LaChapelle is a cool blue-hued image showing off Daphne’s fierce beauty game. The 24-piece strong line includes Azalea Blossom blush ombre in light cool pink (£22); pro longwearing lipcreme in blue-pink Red Dwarf (£15.50); and Hyperion Light (grey blue green) nail lacquer (£9).
