maison martin margiel

Many a high street-slash-designer collaboration has manifested in the form of a simplified, mainstream-accessible take on the designer’s aesthetic. Maison Martin Margiela for H&M hits shelves next month, and it doesn’t quite fit the formula. Instead it’s a re-editing of Margiela’s body of work. In the look book above you can notice iconic Margiela pieces from across the years, like a gallery retrospective re-cut into a capsule for high street shelves.

And perhaps that’s a fresh way of doing things: potentially bringing the history of the brand to a new generation, while also giving long-time fans something to look forward to.
