This Tuesday we attended the Maison Martin Margiela with H&M exclusive fashion pre-launch party in Athens, at H&M Ermou 54.
We were a little late, and the music show began while we were waiting in the row to enter the event, and then we had to wait for almost another half an hour until the show ended for the gates to open again- “cause the store was way too crowded”, as we’ve been told (which made us wonder how “exclusive” the event really was). Tamta was gorgeous in the red Margiela dress and the tan knee high boots with the plexiglass heel, though we didn’t actually enjoyed the show on the tv screen…
When we finally did it- and entered the store, we were somehow prepared for what we faced: the too crowded space, the almost “manic” people that were fighting over the Margiela clothes to obtain a designer’s piece… Not quite classy, made me think.
We wandered around the store, until the crowd seemed to lessen a little bit, so we could get a more close & peaceful view at the Margiela Collection pieces. All the items were really unique and classy, as well as they were particularly well-cut, with quite minimal lines, yet with a touch of eccentricity, which made them special.
Meanwhile, we tasted the well-refined catering, and -I think I have to admit- we had a liiiittle more champaign!-
So, there you are, we share our experience with you!
Some pieces of the collection that “caught our eye” (though there were many more that we really adored but we didn’t get the chance to take a picture…)
