Confirming yesterday’s rumors, Maison Martin Margiela is indeed set to collaborate with H&M. The collection, which will encompass garments and accessories for both men and women, is set to hit 230 stores worldwide as well as online on November 15.
“We are very happy to present Maison Martin Margiela pieces with H&M, offering a new interpretation of our vision,” the house said in a statement. “The democracy of our fashion has always been at the center of our creativity, and the collaboration with H&M allows us to push this instinct further. We will bring together the contrasting universes of the two houses in ways that will surprise all.”
Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M, described Maison Martin Margiela as “one of the most important and influential fashion houses of the past three decades. I am so excited by this radical collaboration which will give fashion lovers around the world the chance to wear special pieces by Maison Martin Margiela. This collaboration will be a great and memorable fashion moment.”
