Maison Martin Margiela & H&M Launch Party 5 Beekman Street NYC! Xx

Julianne Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mena Suvari, 
Kanye West, Helena Christensen, Selma Blair, 
Alan Cumming and Chace Crawford 
were among the guests at a party 23 October in New York 
to celebrate HandM’s collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela.

The unique event was held across many floors of 5 Beekman Street, 
a historical building in the city’s financial district. 
Guests were able to discover the collection in 
dance performances by noted choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker 
and through specially commissioned art installations, 
before DJ’s kept the party going into the early hours.

The Maison Martin Margiela with HandM collection
 will be launched on November 15th in around 230 HandM stores worldwide.

 Between 1985 and 1987 Martin Margiela,
 the legendary man himself 
worked for Jean Paul Gaultier
Check my Post:
 before showing 
his first collection under his own label in 1989.  
I went to his first ever couple of shows in Paris 
which were the most incredible events.
 You were given the location at the last minute, 
and it was at a disused carpark or some such
and you met for kir with everyone in a local 
Parisian crammed bar afterwards to discuss
the show.
I remember loving the complete deconstructivism.
I still have one of the necklaces from the 1st show.
Always magical, always mysterious were these events
charged with the feeling of the new, the edgy,
and the 'what the hell was going to happen'.

Margiela's brand was acquired by the Diesel brand in 2002 and industry 
insiders quoted that Martin Margiela had left due to 
"... a desire to enjoy his life outside the insistent glare of the fashion world."

So this is the 'Red Carpet' at the Margiela Event in New York
Here actually a piece of grey lino - very Margiela
with Celebs wearing the H&M Collaboration
