Maison Martin Margiela for H&M Fall/Winter 2012 NYC Launch Video Recap

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M Fall/Winter 2012 NYC Launch Video Recap

On October 23rd 2012, in an abandoned building in downtown New York over a thousand people gathered to celebrate the most interesting and exciting design collaboration so far. I was one of them and got to witness the launch of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection and have to say the detail put into the presentation was nothing short of exceptional. The unique event was held across many floors of 5 Beekman Street, a historical building in the city’s financial district. Guests were able to discover the collection in dance performances by noted choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and through specially commissioned art installations, before DJ’s kept the party going into the early hours. Celebrities at the event included Kanye West, Alan Cumming, Helena Christensen, Margareta van den Bosch, Julianne Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Selma Blair, Doutzen Kroes and many others.

The Maison Martin Margiela with H&M collection will be available in selected stores and online on November 15th.

Maison Martin Margiela 22 Pixelated Low Top Sneakers

Maison Martin Margiela 22 Pixelated Low Top Sneakers Spring 2012

Maison Margiela delivers a new take on one of their most classic styles for Spring 2012, giving us this low top canvas sneaker with a large scale pixel square print. Laces are optional as the original shoe tongue concept uses elastics at the sides to keep the foot in place. White stitching at the heel and a few other fine details make this Italian-made sneaker one of the finest we’ve seen for the upcoming spring season.

Maison Martin Margiela Fall/Winter 2011 Two-Toned Leather Boot

Maison Martin Margiela Fall/Winter 2011 Two-Toned Leather Boot

This is nothing like the Margiela footwear most of us are accustomed to seeing as it’s a bit more mature and can be dressed up or dressed down, something we can’t say for their sneakers. The upper features tanned leather paneling that takes up most of the ankle and rear portions and features a unique asymmetric cut on the side to boot. The remainder of the upper is a bit more rugged but contrasts well with the smooth leather paneling. Look for this boot now at Maison Martin Margiela stores worldwide as well as select retailers.
