H&M, please don’t mistake your new overpriced, Maison Martin Margiela collaboration, with the idea that you are now trendy. Maison Margiela, a Belgian designer, who is seen more at exclusive boutiques then shopping malls has created a one-of-a-kind line for H&M. Margiela is known for out-of-the-box fashion that may, or may not deserve a second look. The Maison Martin Margiela line, debuting in H&M today (with people lined up since yesterday AM), is not like anything you’ve seen in the store before and neither are the prices. Ranging from $12.95 for accessories to $399 dollars for a jacket, this isn’t the normal for H&M.
Just viewing the collection online, I can make a clear-cut statement that I will not be a fan. If I wanted to wear my jeans inside out I would… for free, not pay $100 to look like I got dressed in the dark. Call me boring, lame, or ignorant about the fashion world, but I refuse to wear shoes that look like a nun and a stripper designed together, really, a plexi wedge? Gross. An oversized fanny pack? Is that a joke?!?! I just don’t understand where anyone looked at this and decided; yeah this is a great idea.
