Contrary to popular belief, I do leave the prison that is my dorm room and step away from the homework on ocassion. But only for absolutely necessary things, such as attending class, grabbing food and shopping the Margiela for H&M collection. Yes, shopping this collection was totally necessary.
As an H&M-deprived Winnipegger who missed out on a multitude of H&M guest designer collaborations, I was not about to miss out on Maison Martin Margiela. Who would turn down the chance to own re-editions by the Belgian designer famous for his minimalist, deconstructed designs? Not me. Because let’s face it, this is the is the closest I’ll get to owning MMM–at least until I finish paying off the student loan debt.
While I did not brave the crowds to line up for the launch last week, I did drop by the Eaton Center H&M the following day. I was surprised to see that there was still a good amount of the collection left, but I suppose that Margiela isn’t as recognizable or wearable as the Versace or Lanvin collaborations of the past. But that’s fine with me–I walked out with one of the three remaining tromp l’oeil bodysuits in my size. Major score!
