Margiela meets H&M

Posted in Shopping with tags , , on October 17, 2012 by The Style Cache

Today Maison Martin Margiela finally unveiled the look book for their collaboration with H&M a week after release of the official ad campaign.

True to the brand, the range is full of deconstructed pieces including oversized coats, asymmetric dresses and boyish cuts. My personal favourites are the silver mirror ball leggings (£29.99) and fitted black blazer (£69.99).

The collection goes on sale 15th November in H&M stores.

There are always so many trends to come out of fashion weeks that you never know where to start. But for me, one colour trend that stood out in the SS13 shows was how many designers used monochrome so prominently in their collections.

I loved how designers used this simple colour combo to reference so many eras, from the sixties (Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs), to the futuristic (Alexander Wang, Gareth Pugh) whilst others used it to simply make outfits look sexy, sophisticated and fresh.
