NEW
NEW REMADE MARGIELA

TWENTY FIVE OCTOBER, TWO THOUSAND AND TWELVE

Earlier this week H&M presented its latest designer collaboration, with MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA, in New York City. The liaison between the two brands may have raised some eyebrows in fashion circles, but as expected from the MARGIELA people, the concept was quite clear and good. “Nothing new was designed for this collaboration,” said a spokesperson for the house; all designs came straight from the house’s archive. The labels on the garments all mentioned what collection they’re originally from. (It saves a lot of time and money on eBay for people who are looking for the jacket made of leather belts (from A/W 07-08) or the camel-coloured wool overcoat from A/W 12-13, the most recent piece that was remade for H&M.)

As for the festive presentation of the collection, on Tuesday night in downtown Manhattan: members of the venerable dance group of choreographer ANNE TERESA DE KEERSMAEKER rolled around on floors filled with white sand that was apparently flown in especially from some exotic beach. Incredible! See a small slide show of images above, with, among others, a very desirable reversed denim total look, originally from S/S 2005. The collection will be in store (and probably sold out promptly) on November 15. For keen shoppers, please also keep an eye out for the rather understated yet perfect 3-piece suit, in camel or navy, originally from S/S 2009. Facebook  Twitter

    I highly doubt the eBay scouring will end. Everything ends up being sold to people who just mark up the prices and sell it all on eBay, resulting in even more eBay scouring! ;)

    true indeed,,, within hours of the press launch two nights ago, one cynical editrix had listed her gains on eBay. There’s currently 16 menswear items – and three weeks before the 5am queue starts forming around your local H&M

CURRENT ISSUE
19

SPRING & SUMMER 2014

What a return! The unmistakable form of Mr. BORIS BECKER, as photographed by his compatriot JUERGEN TELLER, graces the cover of this 19th edition of Fantastic Man – the issue for Spring & Summer 2014. Part of the accompanying interview takes place at tennis legend BORIS’ London home, in the familiar district of WIMBLEDON. Where else, after all, would a six-time GRAND SLAM singles champion choose to live and work? Elsewhere in the issue, a quartet of ELITE MENSWEAR designers – Mr. TOM FORD, Mr. STEFANO PILATI, Mr. ALESSANDRO SARTORI and Mr. BRENDAN MULLANE – are interviewed and photographed as part of unprecedented investigation into the LOFTIEST and most lucrative echelons of the fashion business. The magnificent archive and working practices of the mononymous SNOWDON are discussed at home with the society portraitist. Plus, what is the humble DRY CLEANER actually doing with the garments you hold most dear, why do airline cabin crew particularly adore the celebrated newshound Mr. RICHARD QUEST, and how does one get involved in the fabulous vintological craze that is HYPERDECANTATION? These questions and more are answered in the brilliant new Fantastic Man. Order now
