Today I went to the Maison Martin Margiela (MMM) for H&M press day, and obviously came in with high expectations. Now, I am not going to analyze this collection piece by piece, because many did that perfectly already. I will just tell you my experience…
I must admit, when I entered, I didn’t really know what I had to think. In a way the collection as a whole gave a great feeling; colors, fabrics, and prints worked very well together. But on the other hand, the first thing I saw up-close was that oversized, mega oversized, jeans. Well let me tell you, as much as I liked it on Sandra (5 inch and up), it didn’t rock my world when I saw it in real-life. However, luckily, piece number two (that I tried on myself), the leather jacket, was A-MA-ZING. I wore it drapped, which was perfect, but also as a coat is was really good. Another of my favourite pieces was a tailored jacket. It had slightly exaggerated shoulders, with a double breasted front (but with ‘hidden’ buttons). As if it was made for me… These two pieces are definitely on my shopping list from the H&M x MMM collection.
Last but not least: the boots. I loved the color of the knee-high (for me at least) boots with the perspex heel, however, the fact that they are so high (up to my knees) make the hard for me to wear. I think I will go for the black ankle boots, IF I can get my hands on a pair. Did you make your H&M x MMM shopping list yet? What are you aiming for?
