Finally, there are images of H&M’s collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela has cracked the surface. During this campaign, the Belgian fashion house appear to execute their avant garde and futuristic designs in outerwear following a neutral color palette. Clearly these are statement pieces which will provide great use for those who seek to dress unconventional. Judging from the collection so far, I would not expect it to win every person (Americans mainly). Most of the time, consumers tend to take the conservative seat while the artist driven will be standing in lines for this highly anticipated collection next month!
Mango‘s fall 2012 lookbook has taken a turn towards girl meets menswear. The Spanish label’s autumn collection is all about style with ease as shown by the large selection of casual knits, heavy jackets and denim. It is pretty dope how these pieces can worn by any woman who wishes to put more use into her garments, individually. From daywear to nightwear, each piece serves its purpose. The collection has a way to give each piece their own individuality, which could compliment the woman’s sense of style. Most lookbooks or collection has a specific aesthetic, which becomes recognizable. However, this is not the case with Mango. My favorite is the chunky nude hued knitwear with animal print denims shown above executed a beautiful movement regards to texture.
Looks as if one of my favorite designers, Maison Martin Margiela will be next to capture his aesthetics with H&M’s upcoming fall 2012 collection. The Belgian designer (Parisian fashion house), who has never been photographed, will have an array of pieces for both men and women. At the moment, there has not been a lookbook as of yet for the November 15th launch date.
Far as the collection, I have no doubts. They did well with all of the collections, campaigns, etc. I questioned the Versace resort collection, but it was decent (women’s collection won it over). With Margiela, I am expecting something more European and a touch of avant grade pieces. The sneakers I will be anticipating to see whether they will make or not. If so, they are going to instantly selling to where people are going to fight over based on the low price; they are normally sold for $680.00
My only problem will be the hypebeast bragging about Margiela when they don’t know shit about him or his aesthetic besides hearing Kanye or Jay-Z mentioning him. The guy has never been seen nor photographed.. Hypebeast or not, we will have to wait and see what the lookbook is looking like really soon!
This week kicked off with New York Fashion Week.BCBG Maxazria has shown some beautiful ensembles down the runway. The color palette through the collection consisted on neutral and nude colors with the exception of dark reds, pink, and yellow. How the colors arranged does deliver a retro late 60s – early 70s vibe, which appears to be on trend. There are alot of draping and flowing garments. Color-blocking has proved its here to stay again for the fall as dresses are layers with fur vests. The accessories were pretty dope for the ladies; they were a little basic, yet effective. I love the contrasting of the outerwear in the collection as well.. One of the great things I love about BCBG MaxAzria is their direction maintain the equilibrium between American and European design.
