Maison Martin Margiela plexi boots - Camille Over the RainbowMaison Martin Margiela plexi boots - Camille Over the Rainbow

(boots Maison Martin Margiela x H&M)

Like carbon dating on adinosaur’sbone, my affinity for all things plexiis not something that can be traced back to an exact point in time. All that we know is that if you can see right through it and it looks overtly minimalistic, chances are I won’t be able to resist. So imagine my own surprise when I chose to not click home the above MMM x H&M booties when they hit stores last week. But Fate is an old friend of mine, so when I bumped into him hanging out with the booties (who were incidentally boasting a 50% mark down) at my local, yesterday afternoon, I air kissed him, as one does in this industry, grabbed themand dashed over to the till.

Tired of the conceptual clutter already, Hennes & co? Is fast fashion trying to give Mo Farah a run for his money? Am I the blackest pot that ever walked the earth? There, plenty of interrogations for you to answer below.

    I must admit, that even if the MMM X H&M collection didn't resonate with my style, these ones are really cool. So is the biker jacket and the huge peacoat x

    Eugene Rabkin made the definite point on the matter, focusing the paradox of this collab with the greatest sensibility. But i'm with you on those boots, they're very contemporary and cool regardless of 'brand-blinding'-processes.
    Much love from Berlin,

  • Nena
  • Daisy Roadster and Coco

    I must admit they're gorgeous. And I don't have anything against your choice.
    But i must say i'm already tired of seeing them in many blogs.
    Fast Fashion indeed.

    Is it awful to say this but I think Im going to way an extra month so grab this or even wait til it starts snowing or something so I can get it even cheaper. H&M seem to having of selling designer collection boots are £20 roughly a month or two after it has been released

    Don't mean to be annoying but carbon dating can trace back things to an exact point in time?! 😀
    I think it's pretty hilarious things were marked down 50% so fast. A bit of a slap in the face for those who stood at their H&M at 5 o'clock that day the collection came out though…

    I hear Mr T-rex can! But not all! and not with precision!!
    Agreed, but at same time there was not much left. Still, if I'd paid full price for anything, I would be pissed right now.
