Yesterday, Twitter went crazy for the rumours that French avant-garde fashion house Maison Martin Margiela was going to be the latest in the long line of luxury label’s to team up with high street fashion chain H&M. Well this morning after a lot of speculation on whether an avant-garde house would do budget prices H&M sent out confirmation in a rather random CV format stating that the one-off collection for autumn/winter 2012 will hit 230 stores and of course H&M’s slightly frustrating website from November 15.
Other than the date, November 15 if you didn’t catch in my previous sentence, and the fact that the collection will consist of garments for men and women, as well as accessories, H&M didn’t give too much more away, other than this video of one of the designs being sketch, and to be honest this long darted sweater dress is enough to get me excited.
I reckon you can speculate that this collection will feature a lot of muted colours I am thinking white, white and a bit more white, with a touch of black, grey and nude shades, I am also thinking that shape and volume will play a part.
I have to be honest I am quite looking forward to seeing the final results. Are you as excited about this collaboration as me?
