Margiela for H&M collaboration isn't far away. I think there will be something good this time.

Are you excited about bringing Maison Martin Margiela to a different customer?
It's a pleasure to present these re-editions of Maison Martin Margiela to a new audience, to those who were too young to buy the original pieces and those who didn't have access to Maison Martin Margiela before the days of internet shopping. Put more simply, our designs will now be available to those who can't afford our mainline collection. With this collaboration, some of our most iconic archive pieces can become modern classics.

 

What can we expect from the collection?
The collection is a series of re-editions, featuring Maison Martin Margiela garments from various seasons since menswear was introduced in 1998. Each garment will be labelled detailing the year and season of origin. The re-editions have been selected not only because of their importance in the history of the Maison, but so the H&M collection will comprise a full wardrobe for men. There are re-editions of coats, suits, denim, shirts, sweaters, shoes and accessories.

Are you excited to be presenting your designs to a broader audience?
We believe in democracy. We do not believe in exclusivity in the typical fashion way. Take examples such as our sock sweater, which was made from several pairs of everyday socks, or our fashion shows, which have been held in a vacant field and a Parisian Métro station. Of course, some of our garments are produced in limited numbers out of necessity, either because of the scarcity of materials or the technical difficulty in making the piece. But by offering our concepts and designs to such a wide audience with this collaboration, we hope that more people are able to share in our creative expression.

How will it differ from the main line?
Our main men's line focuses on construction, detailing and the function and utility of a garment. It is a progressive line that changes every season. These re-editions with H&M will only occur once.

Were there any advantages or limitations in the process?
Every process has advantages and limitations. We enjoyed selecting the pieces from our archives for these re-editions, and working closely with H&M on how to make the re-editions as accurate as possible.

The Margiela name has been built on the reconstruction of vintage or everyday items. How will this signature translate to a broader audience?
It will translate entirely. In the men's collection there is a re-edition of the supporters' scarves sweater, originally shown in the spring/summer 2005 collection. This sweater was originally made entirely from football scarves. The re-edition will also be made from football scarves. It is not a version. It is a re-edition.

It's interesting stuff but pretty much every H&M collab ever has been a shitfest so I'm not sold on this.

Regardless, it probably won't stop you or anyone else from looking. You forget that collaborations are mainly for the fashion illiterati, even if they aren't marketed that way. The very same people will buy into a brand but know next to nothing about the product they've purchased.

If you're men, you don't have to line up like some people do at H&M collaborations. The collaboration is good if there's a few things that are worth buying. Usually almost everything will end up being on sale for even less than 50% at some point.

Fuck. This.

Had enough of this. It's bad enough seeing H&M shamelessly rip off other labels with their garbage clothing (I actually walked through one recently for the first time in months and it was actually, no joke, a depressing experience) without people lending them some bastardized form of legitimacy.

If you return stuff, the money's lost. Can't get it back.
If it's an exchange, the store should label it as and you shouldn't get taxed the second time the item arrives. If they tax you anyway, you won't get it back.

Tldr; you can't get back tax. That' what my local post office told me when I had the same problem.

Reminds me---I need to set more ebay auctions to end at 2:00am thurs through sunday so i can ensnare the drunks. To really juice the auction i could say "auction winnar gets free can of domestic beer and beef jerky along with purchase!"

I'm not Canadian, but wouldn't you claim if from Customs, not the post office?
