When it was announced earlier that Maison Martin Margiela‘s collection for H&M would be an array of “limited re-editions,” the partnership instantly established itself as one of the most anticipated and coveted collaborations of the year. Lauded and referenced by everyone from A$AP Rocky to Kanye West, MMM’s profile has exploded as of late, perhaps a little ironic considering Margiela’s famed reclusiveness and historically low profile. Now, with the release of the collection’s lookbook, the Swedish retailer seems poised to draw even longer lines when the offerings release on November 15. The clothing itself is an array of sophisticated silhouettes extracted from the Belgian designer’s archives, each one an established classic redone for H&M’s massive audience. Among the menswear standouts are new replicas of the label’s contemporary suiting, a shearling-like coat, and an array of boots and accessories that should stir up a good bit of Margiela madness next month. Stay tuned for more details as they surface and the collection’s release date approaches.
