The Second Coming

PARIS: Maison Martin Margiela’s full collection for H&M has been revealed, and the clothing and accessories are true to the avant-garde fashion house’s signature style.
 
The collection consists of mostly reissued pieces from the Margiela archives, and these garments definitely embody the classic oversize silhouettes, deconstructed styling and incorporation of found objects the house became famous for. But while prices for original Margiela pieces can reach thousands of dollars, prices for this collaboration run from $13 to $399.
 
Several pieces are fusions of more than one type of garment. One of the women’s bottoms melds a skirt with trousers; elsewhere, halves of two different dresses are combined. The house also turned everything from key rings, locks of hair, and faceless watches into inventive accessories.
 
Have a look at H&M stores from Thursday on and be quick to pick your favorite pieces.

She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever

WHERE IS IRMA NOW?

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
