^ you are right. this H&M collaboration will not be art.

and to me, there's no use pretending that the H&M collaboration will be a stunning achievement in design. its lowest common denominator stuff that unfortunately, due to H&M, elicits the baser natures of people (ie the pushing/shoving on the sale date, hype, reselling items for 5 times the cost etc)

i would think that margiela the designer would cringe at this stuff.

I understand early margiela aficionados are angered by this collaboration, but honestly the label has changed ship and direction for some time now, despite mild efforts alluding to continuity of the brands philosophy. quality of course has gone down, half if not more of the clothing is now made in romania, including signature pieces like the 5 zip jacket. the creation of the cheaper line 6 that bares rarely any resemblance or coherence to the main line.. the presence of the brand in almost every department store.. the fact that any rap song drops the word "margiela" (pronounced mah-jilla) should also be a sign that times when no one knew the designer's name are long gone. even those white lab coats the staff so proudly wear tends to annoy me.. anyways i'll admit i wasn't expecting this collab but come to think of it, it is not really surprising..

I dont think any of us have any illusions that the label is exactly the same as when margiela was at the helm.

the fact is, the idea that that collaboration is occurring is reason enough to comment on its incongruity.

I really think Margiela himself would careless since he sold the company.

Can anyone remember when did the lookbook for Versace for H&M come out? I suppose the MMM lookbook will come out around the same time (=month) as Versace's?

I'm pretty certain the first Versace lookbook image broke in the October issue of British Vogue, so it'll be September time. Usually images of the pieces start cropping in Russian Vogue around September/October time also.

The September issues didn't contain any. So it's more than likely going to be the October issues here in the UK, which are historically always the High Street issues so it makes sense I guess.

You know, I have an odd curiosity about this. I really want to see what H&M will pull out of their as*es in regards to this. This is such a mysterious establishment that spoke in subtle tones being translated by a bass pumping, feeding frenzy, instant gratifying monster!

I think there might be some problems occurred with the collaboration, coz I've never ever seen a preview this late into August (H&M workers since Madonna Collaboration)
& H&M website Press Area released their FALL campaign and collection preview, and have no mention of MMM @ HM at all
Hopefully it will be out and about in September, as its not in any magazine's september issue.

i dont think there is a problem with the items.

they dont want images released of the collaboration because they want shoppers to buy the anna della russo items first.

in any case, production already finished months ago. the items are shipped by boat to save money - that takes months.

I actually am interested in this collection. I've never really followed MMM, but the secretiveness of this is making me anxious. Hopefully this collection, like Marni, doesn't bring many people to the store while I'm there haha.
