Actually, the answer is yes. That jacket is in fact Margiela. Maison Martin Margiela. The word on the street is that H&M has collaborated with Maison Martin Margiela to create a holiday line slated to hit stores on November 15, 2012.
For those of you that don’t know, Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela, also known as “Fashion’s Invisible Man” (for his consistent elusiveness), used to be the creative director for one of the most coveted brands in the world, Hermes. Margiela is best known for his concept of deconstruction, creating designs that are oversized and that have hems and seams on the outside of the garment. It seems that H&M is really on a roll these days where collaborations are concerned…Versace, Anna Dello Russo and now Martin Margiela. Way to go H&M! Designs for the new collection have been kept heavily under wraps, but here is somewhat of a sneak peek:
Exaggerated shoulders and long, structured coats…I can’t wait!
Until next time!
