margielaFor the first time in my life I've won something like a lucky draw, in this case, a giveaway. Few weeks back, VULTURE opened a giveaway by sharing and liking a photo of Margiela x H&M clasp bracelet, which I did and eventually won this giveaway. Though this bracelet is a little loose for my wrist, it is an extremely unique piece of accessory. A few of my church friends, got a little fooled by it, asking me for the time and then realising it isn't a watch.

The tote bag that came along with it was another simple yet interesting creation and definitely very "Margiela" with its white stitch over white fabric, his signature numerical and deconstruction style (raw fray ends at the handle). My Mom thinks its awful but I think otherwise. I know its a beauty, its the ugly pretty in the world of Maison Martin Margiela. Despite it going mainstream with the collaboration and it being archives from past collections, for a student like me with an average allowance and not having to queue overnight outside the H&M store, it is an honour to win something Margiela, as the MMM legacy continues.
