“What’s that jacket, Margiela?” It’s an infamous lyric on the album “Watch the Throne” by Kanye West and Jay-Z, but now consumers worldwide may be able to own a piece of the luxury brand when the French fashion house teams up with H&M for a holiday collection. Set to release November 15, the H&M and Maison Martin Margiela collaboration will likely feature the unusual tailoring, deconstruction and wild architectural shapes that have defined the avant-garde company. Says a Margiela spokesperson, “The democracy of our fashion has always been at the center of our creativity, and the collaboration with H&M allows us to push this instinct further. We will bring together the contrasting universes of the two houses in ways that will surprise all.”
We. Can’t. Wait.
