Me & MMM x H&M: Act 2

scene 1:

I browsed TFS,there are pics of celebrities and models wearing the collection. Thank the internet for that. If an item doesn't look even half good on people who have stylists and are all made up for the venue, it's not worth it.  

scene 2:

I scrutinize once more the lookbooks. I realize I may have a problem: I like the men's stuff way much more... That camel coat for instance... Wish I could pull it off like Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker.


All their shoes look fantastic! Why didn't they produce smaller sizes???



scene 3:

From the start, the peacoat has been my favorite piece but it's expensive and I'm doubtful it would work on me. After the Isabel Marant David coat disaster, I'm wary of this kind of oversized shape.


After a google search, my "fears" are confirmed...


It's the kind of coat which, like the Isabel Marant David, looks great on tall, thin people or who are wearing very very high heels. Not for me. I'll pass.

 scene 4:

I've narrowed down my selection to:

The white sneakers: a classic... But even if La Garçonne's ed with the replica 22 is amazing, I'm not utterly comfortable with white shoes. But the good thing about h&m is their generous return policy so it could be a calculated risk with a positive outcome or else back to the store.



And that's it.

As for the rest of the collection, I don't need more jackets, I barely wear dresses, and anyway for the most part, I would have issues wearing it on a daily basis or even making it work with the rest of my clothes.

  1. When I was reading on h&m's website, their return policy may be different for the designer collaborations...

    1. I had read on TFS that returns were accepted for a few days only so I checked h&m (France) and it seems the 30 days refund policy will be in effect for these items too...

    2. I checked h&m us website, and they don't say anything specific about margiela having a shorter policy either. Are you going tomorrow? I doubt I'll go tomorrow, maybe on Friday, if getting work done on my car doesn't cost me my kidney.

  2. Enjoying your train of thought over this! MMM has never been my thing so I haven't looked at any of the images out so far very closely, but that shearling jacket looks nice.

    1. I don't own a thing from MMM actually but always looked from afar at their products especially the footwear which I've been in love with...
      There are so many great pieces for menswear! Lucky guys and girls who can pull it off!

  3. mmmm i've been intrigued about the margiela collab. i love your post on this though - much more realistic than a typical overhyped post on all the items when really only a few (or one!) might work for a real person :)

    1. I feel like we've seen the images of the collaboration a million times already! :))
      I didn't want to bore you all to death especially as only a few items created a real curiosity for me.
      Aside from the purists/MMM die-hards fans, I would like to see the type of crowd this collab will gather. The womenswear is not the easiest to pull off...

  4. I have to be honest, the collection doesn't appeal and I think you've picked the only pair of shoes which I genuinely like and would wear. I do actually like white/cream shoes though. I like your style - I often find myself browsing through menswear as well.

    1. I'm surely not holding my breath for this collaboration. I like the sneakers but even then, if quality is not there I won't have any hesitation to leave empty handed.
