SURPRISE OF THE DAY: Maison Martin Margiela collaborate with H&M

This morning I checked my emails and saw this surprising news about the new collaboration partner for H&M. It was last year when I first heart about the brand Maison Martin Margiela. 

The designer Martin Margiela (left the company at 2009) had maintained an extremley low and secretive profile. He has never had his picture taken and always remained backstage after his shows. It is said that all media contact is dealt with via fax and the brands ultradiscreet trademark consists of a piece of cloth with the numbers 0-23 on it. Kind of creepy huh?

The collaboration will include womenswear, menswear and accessories and the launching date will be on November 15th 2012!

"The democracy of our fashion has always been at the centre of our creativity and the collaboration with H&M allows us to push this instinct further," said a statement from Margiela.

OUTFIT: I was wearing...

Ann Taylor Sweater
Missoni Headband
J Crew Cardigan
Ray Ban Glasses
Levis Shorts

These were one of my last shots taken back then when I was still living in Juan les Pins, nearby Cannes. Through the pictures you can assume how magnificent the colors of the ocean are.

I really miss it there!

Now I am back home in Germany writing my Master Thesis... all I can say is that it's keeping me busy...

Create Your Outfit

Even if I'm broke I still go 'shopping'... without (or at least I try not) buying something. But shopping can be still lots of fun when you want to safe money :D
Me and my friends go to stores and choose all the items that catches our attention and try them on. 

What's the purpose of that masochistic idea some of you might think? 

To practice discipline
To keep up with the latest trends
To improve your sense of random styling

All bullxxx I ended up regretting not buying the dress with the wide sleeve and that sweater with a V-cut in the back and embellishments on the shoulder and the black platform shoes, which were so incredible comfortable! Two weeks after sweater, dress, shoes were sold out! Thank god I bought the shorts before.
However, I found the sweater on again and going to order it today! 

So for the next time I'll remember: Immediately buy the items which really really grab your attention Chantal or simply avoid doing these fake shopping trips!
