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.”
NIKE has lost three important shoe-designers at once to their competitor ADIDAS. Marc Dolce, Mark Miner and Denis Dekovic have quit their jobs at the brand with swoosh are all going to work for the brand with the three stripes from 2015 on. Dekovic shared this via Twitter.
NIKE is loosing three of it’s best designers for the shoe-sectors sportswear (Dolce), running (Miner) and soccer (Dekovic).
One can not accuse ADIDAS of trying to obvert their stock-down-fall. To take over important employees of their competitor is already a chilled bitch-move, for sure.
