Maison Martin Margiela: above the creation of mankind.

i thought this post would be relevant for the eve of the launch of MMM for H&M. all hail the genius that is Maison Martin Margiela! it's the designers reinterpretation of everyday objects and manipulation of garments that create such a stir in the industry with this sense of an anti-fashion vision that is ever so addictive. i'm not quite sure if i can fully support these high end fashion house collaborations with fast fashion retail clothing companies such as H&M, as it defeats the purpose of the designer's exclusivity. but on the other hand, it gives the opportunity for non high rollers such as myself who can only dream of having a wardrobe of designer pieces at hand, with a reasonable price tag attached. aside from the fashion, MMM has a very avant-garde twist on the way they represent the label. it was on the top of my list to visit a Margiela boutique or two while on my world trip. and not once was i disappointed with what was presented in front of us. here are some of the sneaky snaps i took at the Tokyo boutique.
