Maison Martin Margiela with H&M collection Lookbook

 The collection is all about the history of Margiela: All of the items are updated versions of Margiela’s unforgettable moments. The collection is available from November 15th and it sure does look good to me! One of the best collaboration collections.

Seeing the clothes, TianCouture posted, “Wow, hands down the best, and most interesting, H&M collection to date...”

Scott, a fan of Maison Martin Margiela under Margiela himself, had a lot to say. “I like that long patchwork silk dress (interpreted from one of my favorite collections, Spring 1992, in which he recycled silk head scarves from various periods) and one of Margiela's signature men's pieces, that waistcoat made of belts… Who is going to buy this?” he wondered. “It seems a little more niche and esoteric in spirit than the typical garb people gravitate toward at H&M. I mean, for the devoted original Margiela fans who never got to experience the earliest of his work, this will give a piece of that, if just in spirit. But I'll be curious if it ultimately creates the same kind of frenzy Comme des Garcons and the like have. But this kind of ticks me off though,” he continued. “This is NOTHING like what we're getting in any of the mainlines and it just questions if they can utilize the old spirit of Margiela in this context, why the flipping hell can they not bring a bit of that back into the primary maison?”

Why indeed? At least we have H&M to help resurrect that spirit for the moment.

Street Style: girls in RED

Red can symbolize many things; from blood, to love, to infatuation.  Basically red symbolizes strong emotions, or things of strong emotions rather than intellectual ideas.  For example, red can symbolize excitement, energy, speed, strength, danger, passion, and aggression.

According to Henry Dreyfus, it is popularly felt that red, the color of blood and fire, represents life and vitality. Red also signifies the color of the sun: a symbol of energy, radiating its vitalizing life-force into human beings.

Street Style: COMME on Des Garçons!

Those outta spacious pieces from the Fall/Winter 2012 collections are surly still fresh in our mind! Especially, the conceptually incredible collection of Comme Des Garçons.To think from a different angle, however,there was a time when I was wondering who was gonna wear those cutout paper-dolliness pieces on the streets?! You may say "It must be Lady GaGa of course!" The fact just goes like this, but not entirely right!As to my astonishment, the first celebrity to wear the pieces from the collections was Taylor Tomasi Hill at NY Fashion Week, choosing a blue graphic parse shorts matching with a easy chic shirt, which completely changed my perspectives on the collection—— dramatic pieces are not only dramatic but also can be so effortless as well! Then it came to more fashionistas like Anna Dello Russo, Hanne Gaby Odiele,and Michelle Elie wearing the outfits from the collection with their distinct style, COMME on Des Garçons!

Runway: Beehives Haute Couture: Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 RTW

Designers have found inspiration in stranger places than beehives, the contents of which gave Sarah Burton a direction for the Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 collection.

There were references to bees all over these clothes, from the beekeeper's hats the models wore down the runway to the honeycomb shaped lace Burton applied to those hats and a number of pieces in the collection. A number of garments — dresses, shirts, and jackets included — demonstrated a clever use of the wasp waist. When could it be more appropriate to revive this McQueen trope than in a collection inspired by bees?

Yes, the inspiration here came across literally, but the clothing certainly didn't suffer for it. Even the black and gold color palette that dominated the show came off as charming rather than thematic, especially in several suits made from a honeycomb jacquard. The final gowns here were dramatic as always, many of them accented by hoopskirts that were either layered on top or barely hidden by sheer fabrics or cloth flowers.

Runway: Tribute or Cliche? Saint Laurent Paris Spring 2013

"I want everything!" this is what the supermodel Kate Moss's exalted reaction after the show by Hedi.Since a large number of editors and faithful fans of the great Master Saint Laurent around have profoundly set a high value on the show by Hedi, the other side, however, poles apart, discussing that the tribute show is more likely a re-edition combining of Frida Giannini's GUCCI and even a absolute cliche.

When discussing the show, one cannot but admits that ultimately the graceful streamlines superimposed with Hedi's glacial attitude recur to the suffocating elegance by Master Saint Laurent.The show DOES evoke the irreplaceable Age of innocent Fashion Dream, its achievements were revisited here.

Classic LeSmoking paid tribute to Master Saint Laurent or seemingly the high line of MANGO?

getting a déjà vu?

It's been impossible to ignore the media-fanned flames of the Raf-Hedi face-off.
