Maison Martin Margiela X H&M’s “Silent Manifesto”
As if it needed more juice, the long-awaited Maison Martin Margiela capsule with H&M decided to launch an international “Silent Manifesto” this past weekend in which demonstrators dressed in white aprons “politicize” their “statement” (read: advertise the launch) carrying signs that bear the collaborations logo along with the date in which the coveted goods will hit store shelves — November 15th. We guess that’s one way to get noticed.
Not that the pairing really needs the attention. There were rumors of an MMM X H&M collection long before the two brands confirmed it, and the build-up in the fashion world has been… um… intense. Regardless, MMM X H&M “protestors” marched in San Francisco, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Germany, Austria, Romania, Canada, Italy, UK and Mexico. Did you happen to see them? Let us know!
