The problem isn't the inevitable lines in around the blocks of your local H&Ms, it isn't even that on November 15th, H&M stores will probably be a haunting reflection of what goes on at every sample sale in the city. After you somehow accept and ignore the first two pressing issues, the question you have to ask yourself is "Hey, would I pay $299 for that faux leather tote at H&M? Do I have the nerve to buy this mass-produced pair of $129 sneakers? How many people will be wearing these $349 pair of plexiglass wedges?".
It isn't to say that the Margiela x H&M collection isn't pretty - because it's definitely sleek and chic, as expected from Margiela, but it sure does cost a pretty penny, 34,900 pennies for those black booties to be exact.
You're looking at the sucker for these collabs - it's the hype and the fact that I can almost afford it. I'm definitely gonna snag something from this collection.
