Finally the MMM Leather Jacket

Remember the leather jacket that I lamented about in this post?

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M leather jacket.

That deconstructed leather jacket sort of did haunt my dreams.

But when I went back when I first found out about the 70% off sale, it didn't end up being part of my haul.

To be honest I was worried I was not going to be able to zip it up still.

Today though, I felt I just had to go to H&M and check again.

I had to bring her home.

...because, finally!

I love this jacket.

It's so amazing. Each detail is filled with edge.

Albeit I won't be able to wear much under it, but who needs to when the jacket is a stand alone signature piece.

Maison Martin Margiela for HM 70% off

Sometimes, destiny decides what I should post about.

At about 6:20pm last night, a text from my dear friend wrote today's post for me.

Am I an excessive person?

Yeah, even if I wasn't I sure will be deemed one by the end of this post.

Two weeks ago, I revisited H&M for what is left of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection.

Delighted to find out that some of the items have been marked down such as boots and accessories.

Still, most are over $100.00, I left empty handed, willing for further mark downs to soon happen.

Last night, I happened upon the Holy Grail.

Lured in by the promise that now the clear-heel-boots are only $60 I was not able to resist.

Shall we start with the haul reveal?

This whole pile would have no doubt cost me a small fortune if I bought them when they first came out.

But now, they are less than the price of one pair of shoes.

Proves yet again that patience is a virtue that brings good things to those who wait.

If you loved the line like I do, go check out your local H&M, many great pieces are sure to be found.

Consider this an early Christmas present my posers. Have a fantastic day.

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.
