Being the opinion Nazi that I am, you should be aware of the restraint exercised to refrain myself from machine-gun-rambling about this Margiela X H&M collaboration. In summary, I don't mind buying it, just don't buy into it. It's essential to point out that H&M's success is mostly measured in media impressions, not sales; meaning these collaborations generate "earned media" which is equivalent to millions of dollars in advertising which also includes brand awareness. So today, I am celebrating, not in honor of yesterday's media-hyped over-tweeted launch, but in honor of the actual Mr. Margiela (wherever he may be) as a true pioneer, and an ineffable inspiration. Which is why I am doing a very special Giveaway to commemorate him, featuring an authentic Maison Martin Margiela piece, no ties to H&M whatsoever (not that that's a bad thing).
Item: A pair of grey Maison Martin Margiela long mohair fingerless gloves with signature stitches and original swing tag still included.
