H&M has confirmed an exclusive collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela for Autumn/Winter 2012.
You may not be familiar with that name but if you’re a fan of Jay-Z & Kanye West like I am, you would have heard it a few times on their Watch The Throne album. (hence the title ^^^ hehe)
The French fashion house has released a statement saying, “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.” Ooooh, surprises! 😀 I’m just dreaming of what these two might come up with, I’ve still got 5 months to think about that because the collection is due to launch worldwide from November 15th.
The collection will include men’s and women’s range of ready-to-wear clothing and accessories and will go into about 230 H&M stores worldwide as well as online.

The Swedish retailer tweeted the announcement with a link to a video of a hand sketching a women’s sweater. It later added, “Of course @MMM_Official with H&M collection includes menswear!” Take a look at both below.
Apparently Maison Martin Margiela is said to be a favorite of Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga which means if you love these two ladies, you can look like them for less! (yay you 🙂 )
And like I said before, Kanye West is a fan so even the men in our lives can get their Yeezy on.
Creative advisor for H&M, Margareta van den Bosch said: “Maison Martin Margiela is 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.”
