I’M HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH THESE MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA CLEAR-SOLE BLACK LEATHER BOOTS FROM MR PORTER

*Cue groans at the title*

I’m more than happy to hold my hands up and admit that I wasn’t exactly the biggest Maison Martin Margiela fan until I came across the H&M collection and began doing more digging into their archives.

Since purchasing as much as I could afford from their high street collaboration, I’ve become rather obsessed with the brand, (“perusing the web until 4am for any Margiela bargains” obsessed), and their avant-garde/classic with a contemporary twist aesthetic, which has been perfectly portrayed by these Clear Sole Black Leather Boots from Mr Porter.

I LOVE MY MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA FOR H&M WOOL COAT!

The main item I’ve wanted from the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection since it’s launch, is now MINE! And I LOVE IT!

This gorgeous camel coloured wool coat is a re-edition of similar garment from Maison Martin Magiela’s Autumn/Winter 2012/13 men’s collection. Aside of the major difference in price, this re-edition features inverted lapels and visible white stitching, both of which add a quirky and unique twist to an otherwise simple double breasted coat.

Although cut straight and not tapered, it’s very snug around my chest and shoulders, but that’s more to do with my ever-changing build than the coat, and in all honestly I actually don’t think I would have felt too comfortable wearing a size up.

Styled above with Topman Navy Coated Twisted Jeans, and a Navy Ribbed H&M Zip Roll Neck Jumper.

I FINALLY GRAB A FEW MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA ITEMS FROM THE H&M SALE!

It was a bit of a disappointing time for me when Maison Martin Margiela launched their collaboration with H&M last month. Everyone was tweeting their purchases and there’s me sitting at my computer, with not a penny to spend on anything. The worst thing of course with these designer collaborations, is many people simply buy a bundle of items only to be resold on ebay at extortionate prices, leaving those who actually wanted to purchase the collection to wear, with no chance whatsoever.
