sorry but i don't need to see anything up close to notice such an obvious design flaw as that. they didn't even come close to the original pattern. it just looks like a standard sweater model that they attached a pair of socks to.

come on now.....long-time fans are not that dumb.

Upon closer inspection of the scans, I would agree with your assessment on the sock sweater. It just looks weird.

I actually owned quite a number of artisanal margiela pieces such as the the football scarves, each piece is uniquely different and it sounds ludicrous to me now with these re editions, I mean how? And margiela the brand, these days are not even elusive as the article claimed, I find in your face in fact, it's online shop I signed up many years ago in Japan before the buyout was officially announced kept sending me sale, sale, sale emails...it just cheapens the brand that it feels sacrilegious to the designer to say the least.

I do not see some of these pieces selling much at all.

Though, I said the same about the Versace collaboration, and those were gone in the first day at my local store. I guess if it's flashy enough and has the label, someone will pay for it.

Versace is a prime example of great marketing can push bad product. That was probably the biggest marketing any H&M collaboration has ever gotten.

Although both have specific customers, Versace is a more recognizable brand. Correct me if I'm wrong, Margiela is more similar to Marni in terms of visibility and size. And the draw for that line were the designs more so than the brand; if at all. I don't think Margiela can do that. Unlike Marni, it is more conceptual and people will not buy into that as much as well, wearing something 'nice.'

i'm afraid that commercially this collaboration will be the pits for H&M
and it will somehow 'hurt' the profile of MMM

by now it's bvious that was not a good idea

Sam Taylor Wood Lenses Campaign for Margiela, H&M Collection

SAM'S PARIS: The British artist and photographer Sam Taylor Wood took to the streets of Paris to help create the ad campaign for Maison Martin Margiela’s upcoming collaboration with Hennes & Mauritz. Taylor Wood directed the photo shoot and a series of short films, with the print campaign set to break this month in titles including international editions of Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, GQ and Dazed & Confused. The films will air on TV starting Nov. 8, one week before the collection launches in 230 stores worldwide and online.

“Working with such an anarchic house as Martin Margiela alongside a high-street brand was a challenge that creatively became a crazy, fun project,” said Taylor Wood, who collaborated with the creative director Markus Kiersztan on the project. Taylor Wood added: “I wanted to create an atmosphere that was both quiet and still. That each person was in their own emotional and physical thought space. A world away from the heady atmosphere of the usual urban noise.”

As reported, Margiela has designed a one-off collection of ready-to-wear and accessories for men and women. The fast-fashion giant has previously collaborated with Donatella Versace, Jimmy Choo and Marni on collections.

Damn...it all looks good, but of course because it's from one of the fashion greats. I'm holding out as a matter of principle but I cannot deny that these designs are still modernist classics in their own right.
