It's right around the corner. The pieces are out. The prices are up. What else is there to know about the Margiela with H&M collaboration? Well, there are a few interesting tidbits that I thought you guys should know:
1) Wondering why the prices for these pieces are not as economical as they should be? Well it's because everything in the collaboration that is made of leather is actually made of real, genuine honest to goodness leather [including the coveted shoes!]. None of the PVC or faux leather business here.
2) All apparel purchased from the collection will come with gorgeous white-washed hangers and white cotton dust bags. Honestly, this is a PLUS considering the prices that's available for these pieces. Talk about fast luxury!
3) There are a few "surprise" items apart from those that we've all seen online. One interesting piece for the ladies would be these gorgeous pumps with a removable heel[worth SGD 199 a pair]. The heels are drilled through and laced with a ribbon, which you can detach and use as a necklace. Genius eh?
Now let's talk about pricing. I have the updated pricing in SGD for my favourite pieces in the collection. One thing I want to highlight are some of the must have pieces from the men's collection - such as the hand painted loafers will costSGD299 a pop, the hand painted ankle boots will set you back SGD 399 a pair and for one of the most coveted pieces in the collab, the trompe l’oeil high-top sneakers is only setting you back for SGD199. Remember folks, these are Margiela designs in REAL LEATHER so these prices are actually AMAZING!
For the ladies, check out the SGD prices above. Seeing these prices are making me want to queue up first thing on the 14th! Some of the pieces are priced quite well I must say, considering the quality and the amount of goodies that you'll get along with it. For more information on the pricing of the full collection, just visit H&M's website and you'll get the full list with product descriptions. See you all in the lines!
