My Maison Martin Margiela

Yesterday was the release of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collaboration. I went in the morning to try my luck, but the collaboration wasn't going to open to the public until 11:30am.

Duty calls, so I proceeded onto my day job. Besides, I was not able to get any decent photos with all the glare in the windows anyway.

I returned at night and was delighted to find a good number of items still available.

Plus, evening light makes much better display window photos.

Look at these crazy amazing shoes!

But I really want that leather jacket.

Inside, I headed straight for the accessories table and nabbed myself the waterfall choker. As I looked up, the nude bodysuit with integrated bra and the deconstructed leather jacket are both still available!! Hastily I ran to the fitting room with swag in tow.

The jacket looks pretty good on me I think. Aside from the fact that it was probably two sizes too small >.<

At the present state, there is no way on God's Green Earth I was going to be able to zip it up. Damn those Euro sizes.

Then there is the bodysuit!

As expected, I totally love it! Except it too was two sizes too small. I felt like I was being vacuum sealed inside of it.

But they do look awesome worn together.

Disappointed to the fact that I may only make it out with the choker, I returned to try my luck once again.

Lo and behold, the bodysuit was still available in an array of sizes. Delighted, I grabbed the appropriate size and headed on my way.

Look at that shopping bag, big enough to house these guys.

Really, it only housed these guys.

I love how all the items are re-editions of Maison Martin Margiela garments from various seasons. The bodysuit is circa SS 2007.

The collection is also about re-translating as well. Especially evident in the leather jacket, as it is made from pieces of men's jackets and reformed in a more feminine silhouette.

No doubt my dreams were all filled with deconstructed garments coming back together again..

Maybe I will just buy it. Zipping up jackets is overrated anyway.
