Those who want cheap old MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA-Designs doesn’t have to go to a flea market can instead find them at Swedish junk-giant H&M starting from 15 November 2012.
That’s because the MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA collection for the Swedish retailer will be compiled exclusively of recycled Margiela designs. At least that’s what H&M claim in a sponsored PR interview with British men’s magazine GQ.
An anonymous Interviewee states there:
“The collection is a series of re-editions, featuring Maison Martin Margiela garments from various seasons since menswear was introduced in 1998. Each garment will be labelled detailing the year and season of origin. The re-editions have been selected not only because of their importance in the history of the Maison, but so the H&M collection will comprise a full wardrobe for men. There are re-editions of coats, suits, denim, shirts, sweaters, shoes and accessories.”
The reason for a re-issue collection is revealed by the unknown representative as well:
The first Polaroids of the collection are already available, too. The pieces of the MAISON MARGIELA collection can be bought at H&M from 15 November 2012. We recommend not to though, by the way. Here’s why (see our article from June 2012)
“Eine Kooperation zu diesem Zeitpunkt wäre eine Enttäuschung. Denn Martin Margiela ist, oder war, das Avantgardelabel der Modebranche. Wenn man nun mit H&M zusammenarbeitet, dann gehört man mit dieser Entscheidung nicht zur Vorhut, nein, man ist ein Nachzügler.
Denn wie wir alle wissen, hat H&M schon mit Gott, Karl Lagerfeld, und der Welt, Cavalli & Co. zusammengearbeitet. Also: Martin, du Phantom der Mode, lass es sein.”
Quiz-question: which fashion-blogger is unable to write a full sentence, is licking his own asshole everyday and still earns more money than you, who has an abhorred office-job (about 15.000,- Dollar per month)?
No, it is not Sami Slimani – he owns more. And it is not Jessica Weiß - she knows how to write (and does not lick her own ass, as far as we know).
It is Bodhi. And different from Sami Slimani, Bodi is a dog.
The dog earns about 15.000,- Dollar per month with fashion-blogging. And all of that, just because his owner had the world-greatest-ideam to put men’s clothes on the dog – and than had the brilliant idea, to make a blog out of it.
Fashion brands as AMERICAN APPAREL, GANT and ASOS are paying hundreds of dollars, so that Bodhi is wearing their clothes. Well, if nobody else does it (besides maybe Sami - here for example).
We are definitely picking up role-models, looking at the top-earners Bodhi and Sami and are starting to smell our own assholes again. Maybe then we are finally going to have the style and the money.
