When I come across great fabrics for a good price I strike, well almost, I’m so regretting I didn’t look a little harder for the white version of this cashmere turtleneck on the day of the MMM for H&M launch 2 weeks ago, especially now when I’ve got the hots for cozy warm dresses. And like a friend said the other day, ” that’s a lot of cashmere for £69!”, can’t argue that.
Yesterday I had a closer look on the highly anticipated MMM for H&M collab that will hit stores in a couple of weeks. I have to admit I’ve been kind of sceptic to the final result ever since the collaboration was announced, simply cause I didn’t see how the usual great Margiela quality would translate into highstreet prices. Well, scepticism aside, the collection is great, in fact my favourite H&M collab so far, and the fabrics are absolutely approved.
Overall the collection is quite voluminous and oversized which is right up my alley, but certain pieces like the oversized (and one sized!) woolcoat for instance, sizes quite big, and I felt a little drowned in it with my 5ft’8in. However, it’s still one of my favourite pieces along with the blue turtle knit, and wide leg suit…..and many other beautiful things both in the women and men’s(!) collection.
Well hello there, if the freshly released campaign images of the collaboration Maison Martin Margiela + H&M are anything to go by I say hurray!!!!! The images photographed by Sam Taylor-Johnson are absolutely stunning and the pieces looks fantastic, those coats are officially on my wishlist, so I cannot wait to feel the fabrics up close.
The collection will be available in stores and online on November 15th.
We’ve finally got a little more taste of summer in London and I don’t need to be asked twice to make the best out of it, though I’d would be very happy to see more of the sun itself. Anyway, sun or not, I felt inspired to wear a hint of tropics in form of this bag paired with an otherwise monochrome look yesterday. As we constantly need to bring along an umbrella and jumper these days the size of this bag is perfect even if I optimally wish it contained a beach towel and “beachy” literature.

Wow, unconfirmed rumors are saying that H&M’s next designer collaboration will be with fashion house Martin Martin Margiela. If this buzz will be confirmed true I’ll salute it though I’m very curious how it would add up. I mean, the Margiela house is known for more than edgy cuts, and I wonder how they will manage to “re-pack” their gorgeous luxurious fabrics into highstreet price level, stay tuned….
There’s a big chance street style photographers might struggle to capture vibrant colors during next fashion month in September, cause black, white and gray looks are coming back strongly. However I don’t mind at all, especially when it comes in sharply tailored packages or slouchy silhouettes like this, which happen to be my favorite collection by Maison Martin Margiela for quite a while now. It might look less avant-garde and perhaps more commercial, but it still has the Margiela odd details and cleanness which is right up my street. I love the oversized detailed turtle necked coats, and the perfect creamy yellow jumper already has my name on it!
Wow, it’s Friday eve already and I’ve got no clue what happened with this week, perhaps due to my mum visiting and a busy calendar. On Wednesday I spent the day up in Cambridge, such an incredible beautiful town, I will go punting there next summer for sure.
As it was a pretty chilly day and I spent lots of time outside I wrapped up warm, I wore jeans and jumper by Isabel Marant, fur coat by Maison Martin Margiela, boots Topshop, sunnies Phillip Lim and bag Celine.
Bonjour! Paris has been wonderful so far and yesterday was a non-stop day with shopping eating and randomly we bumped into 2 groups of friends in 2 different areas of Paris. In fact I was led to one of the areas, Marais, tracking a pair of gorgeous shoes, serendipity I guess.
Now, gotta get ready to a massive birthday party, wishing you a happy Sunday too!
I wore skirt Acne, jumper Margiela, gillet H&M, boots Topshop, bracelet Proenza Schouler, watch Michael Kors, ring YSL, bag Celine and sunnies Ralph Lauren.
Sorry, not much posting today but my mum is visiting from Norway so I’ve been out all day having fun with her. Not much time to say much more as I’m on the go again but thank you for feedback on yesterday’s 1-year-candle, it really warmed my heart. Wishing you all a lovely Tuesday eve!
My mum snapped me today and I wore shorts Topshop, top Cos, jacket Acne, shoes Zara, watch Michael Kors, bracelet Margiela and bag Celine.
Yesterday’s party was so much fun, the host had turned the fantastic flat in Notting Hill to a club with barbeque on the roof terrace, DJ’s and champagne on the stand. Thumbs up!
I didn’t manage to take one ok photo though but here’s images from yesterday noon, strolling in my hood. I wore blouse and bag Acne, old jeans Bik Bok, bracelets Intermix and Margiela, sandals Balenciaga and sunnies Ralph Lauren.
The house of Margiela’s Resort Collection 2012 is perhaps more mainstream than we’re used too (the foxtail, doesn’t feel much Margiela) but I like it, the cuts and details are still there but in a more easy-to-wear package and would probably appeal to a bigger crowd. I would be happy to wear all these looks, so relaxed and cool, and those fold-over-clutches as seen in the fall collection, please send my way.
