Maison Martin Margiela Resort 2013 was full of what MMM does best, menswear-influenced tailoring. The minimal collection was full of monochrome tones with hint of powdery hues; silhouettes were simple layered with tailored pieces, whilst others were loose and light. This is definitely a collection full of investment pieces, faves are the off white double-breasted sleeveless jacket, the navy suit with cigarette pants, and the strapless pleated black maxi dress. I also want to get into the bags and couple of the shoes! That fold over clutch and oversize box clutch need to be mine, I’ve already cleared space for them in the bag closet! That is all.


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.


Maison Martin Margiela opted for a palette of neutral tones and blacks with hints of red leather. The show started of with classic formal looks, but went on to show leather waistcoats, red and white motorcycle trousers, glossy bomber jackets and puffer jackets which gave an edgy and modern twist to the timeless design.
