H&M announces exclusive Margiela collab for AW 2012

While H&M announces its collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela to be released five months from now, this early some of us are already thinking which country is best to fly to where the lines won’t be so crazy.


H&M is proud to announce a collaboration with one of the most important brands of the past three decades, Maison Martin Margiela.
A cult label adored by fashion insiders, French house Maison Martin Margiela has long influenced the mainstream with its radical ideas and experiments with clothing.
The collaboration will immerse H&M in the playful world of Maison Martin Margiela, giving fashion lovers around the world the chance to wear pieces from this mysterious brand.
The collection for both women and men will be available from November 15, 2012 in around 230 H&M stores worldwide, as well as online.

“We are very happy to present Maison Martin Margiela pieces with H&M, offering a new interpretation of our vision. The democracy of our fashion has always been at the centre of our creativity, and the collaboration with H&M allows us to push this instinct further. We will bring together the contrasting universes of the two houses in ways that will surprise all.” — Maison Martin Margiela

The Blouse Blanche

“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,” says Margareta van den Bosch, H&M’s creative advisor.

Maison Martin Margiela

Maison Martin Margiela is a fashion house which has always followed its own path, often outside the conventional fashion framework.
The Maison believes in the absolute importance of the collaborative nature of its team, rather than the individual, where its ideals are founded in the desire for concept and creativity.
Constantly questioning the norms of fashion and presenting its pieces through the technique of deconstruction and transformation, the collections reinvent volumes, modify shapes, change the original use and movement of garments and derail classic notions of fashion.
Maison Martin Margiela is the latest house to collaborate with H&M on an exclusive designer collaboration, following the likes of Versace, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons and, most recently, Marni. Maison
Martin Margiela’s collaboration with H&M will be fully in the spirit of the Maison, creating a unique fashion experience when the collection reaches stores worldwide this November.


Christmas shopping in June

Have you thought about Christmas this early?
I have. I want to get all my shopping done before December so that all I have to do is wrap and deliver before Christmas. This way, I don’t have to stress about the Christmas traffic and slim choices in Manila. I get to enjoy the holidays.
This early Vizcarra invites you to a two-day event showcasing new designs of customized holiday presents and
corporate giveaways for pre-order.
Vizcarra makes those cute caddies and baskets I love using and giving as presents, among other things.

The best Thai sampaloc

I can’t remember how I discovered this product. Maybe my sister gave me. But this is seriously the best sampaloc I’ve had. Bought this at the Gourmet Market (supermarket) in Paragon, Bangkok.
I’m not a huge fan of spicy, but this one really hits the spot. I consume so much ice water while eating this, and I can only take a few bites at a time because it’s so tasty, I cry a little when eating it.


Besides the cute packaging, I love that the tamarind is mixed in a bed of large salt crystals.
A kind warning though: it causes much gas and diarrhea. As in, you should stay home. Don’t go out on a date and don’t eat this before boarding a plane or train.
So forget Juju cleanse and all those fancy detox diets, Tamarind House makes one of the best tasting laxatives out there.


Loft is probably the biggest wasteland chain from Japan, where you can get lost looking at everything you need and have—only cuter. Loft is one of my must-stops in Yurakucho (walking distance from Ginza). This one is right next to a very large MUJI store.

There’s a famous one in Shibuya.

Maybe this is heaven for me.

I have a recurring dream where I’m looking for the wasteland in Tokyo. Imagine if we had a loft in Manila. It would Christmas everyday.
