Margiela Mayhem

 

Who partook in the madness of Margeila for H&M yesterday? Finally released after much anticipation, it seems the collaboration launch was not without the standard website crash, the overnight queues, and the crazy that seems to come out with a limited edition designer collab at affordable prices (no judgement – I would lump myself into this category too).

I was bang on time, jumping on to their website and breezing through the initial stages of adding to my cart – I was almost disappointed at how easy it was appearing to be. I mean – why hasn’t the website crashed yet? Mmm… spoke too soon.

It all went wrong at the most important sealing of the deal – payment. After failing all my security questions (what the hell – that was my cat’s name!) my card was officially blocked and I was left to deal with the devastation. I then called my bank in a state of hurried panic – apparently shopping on H&M is not an urgent matter and the call centre was closed. What the hell? What kind of self-respecting bank has calling hours? And who doesn’t understand the urgency of this situation?

But then, a glimmer of hope… turns out the trusting folk at H&M will send out your parcel with a payment slip inside. Seems too good to be true – who sends you something and trusts you to pay later? But then, the website CRASHES. Great.

With some seriously persistent refreshing, I won out and this oversized pea coat will be mine! Had to sleep in this morning after my night of adrenaline-filled fun and dismay (what a rollercoaster) but I woke up feeling that little bit more satisfied that next winter I’ll be strutting around in my dream coat.

First Looks

While I’m not sure how the regular shopper will react to this collection, I am so thrilled to see Maison Martin Margiela’s collaboration with H&M is looking so strong and true. I half expected a diluted, dulled down version of the iconoclastic and avant-garde label, but thankfully I have been proven wrong (probably one of the only times I am actually thankful about this!). Available on November 15th – otherwise known as payday for many of us – I hope this collection is championed for it’s uniqueness and identity.

Ceremonial Collection

Aaaahhhh…. at last! A different spin on the bridal look…. Love the vintage, dream-like, Victorian, slightly gothic vibe to this collection from Bona Drag. This collaborative project includes the likes of Mara Hoffman, Pamela Love, Lindsey Thornburg, With Hearts in My Eyes, Anna Sheffield, Unearthen, Samantha Pleet, and Meredith Kahn of Made Her Think. Phew… What a line-up!

Elin Kling For Guess By Marciano

Elin Kling, the latest blonde bombshell to attract the attention of the Marciano brothers, recently announced her latest collaboration with Guess by Marciano. While Guess is not usually on my radar – in part due to only seeing their accessories line here – I am actually quite curious and a little bit excited! I mean, when has Elin ever let us down?! Available in the Fall, the capsule collection was inspired by matadors and the femme fatale qualities of their campaign archives… I’m certainly intrigued. How about you?
