The Women’s Wear Daily reports on rumors that H&M and Maison Martin Margiela are going to design a joint collection. As WWD is a reliable source of news, one should assume there’s some truth to the rumors.
Maison Martin Margiela S/S 2010
A cooperation at this point would be a disappointment. Because Martin Margiela is or was the avant-garde label of the fashion industry. If it now works with H&M, it doesn’t belong to the vanguard with this decision, no, one’s a laggard.
Because as we all know, H & M already worked together with God, Karl Lagerfeld, and the world, Cavalli & Co.. So Martin, you phantom of the fashion, let it be.

ALEXANDER WANG is daring to touch another, more peripheral, fashion-issue after the H&M-cooperation: Interior.
He designed a ‘Bean Bag Chair’ for the Italian label Poltrona Frau and a booze-case – or rather wrapped it with black leather.
For 8.800,- dollars you can buy the luxurious bean bag, for 18.500,- dollar the box. One can only hope, that Wang used his own ball-skin for the pieces, considering the price. Everything else would be: rude.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
