Fashion Collab FAB: Maison Martin Margiela for H&M Autumn/Winter 2012


Avant-garde Fashion label, Maison Martin Margiela will be collaborating with H&M for a Autumn/Winter 2012 collection!

High street retailer H&M has confirmed that it will launch a collaboration with avant-garde label Maison Martin Margiela for a fall rollout. 
In a statement on H&M's website, Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M, said "Maison Martin Margiela is one of the most important and influential fashion houses of the past three decades. I am so excited by this collaboration which will give fashion lovers around the world the chance to wear special pieces by Maison Martin Margiela. This collaboration will be a great and memorable fashion moment."

The founder and namesake of the cult label, who was remarkable in the fashion industry for his lack of public appearances, left the brand in 2009. The brand, known for its white label, has continued to produce conceptual fashion with deconstructed garments and the teaser image for the H&M collaboration stays true to this spirit.
The collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela is the latest in a long line of collections produced by big name designers for the high street store. Previous examples of which include Karl Lagerfeld and Marni.
The H&M/Maison Martin Margiela range will be available at 230 H&M stores around the world and via H&M's online store on November 15.

Trend FAB: Wide-Leg Jumpsuits

Jumpsuit Joy

If you're a long legged Amazon like myself, then you can appreciate styles that cater to the tall and the FABulous!

Jumpsuits have always been a staple in the Fashion world, but it's the wide-leg 70's flare with a modern tailored cut that makes this particular suit a timeless  piece.

This one-piece gem was not only designed for the sky scraper chic, women that lack height, but never lacking the sexxy, can feel like a Stallion in this elongating garment!
Model, Irina Shayk, and Reality Star, Kim Kardashian, are two of the many celebs who have jumped on the Wide-Leg Jumpsuit wagon.
