Lets Talk Fashion News: H&M x Maison Martin Margiela

Hello there cookies!

So what I will be sharing with you today is news that is sooooo 3 weeks ago--literally.
If you don't know yet that Maison Martin Margiela is H&M's newest designer collaboration, then I'm sad to have to inform you that are living under a rock, or perhaps you just don't care about the fact-- both of which are cool.

So whether you know this fashion house or not you probably have been singing- well rapping- its name every time you listen to Paris off the Watch the Throne Album.The fashion aficionado himself, Kanye West, constantly makes reference to fashion houses he wears in his lyrics, just like he did this time:
What's Louie my killa?  
What's drugs my deala?  
What's that jacket, Margiela?

Once again H&M will set fire under the bamsies** of fashion fanatics across the globe by making privy to us the highly coveted and extremely expensive designs. Anyone remember the pandemonium that was the Versace collab last fall, or even worse, Lanvin the year before.

I can tell you right now that I probably will not buy anything, just for the mere fact that I was oh, so, disappointed with the quality of the Versace collection. Perhaps I'm jumping the gun a bit-- but you do get what you pay for, and you're kind of paying for H&M...right?

The Collection will be in select stores November 15th.

On that note, let's look at some of the marvelous pieces from Margiela's Resort 2013 Collection. If the collaboration looks anything like this, then I will definitely be waiting with bated breath.
