Maison Margiela is a label that is not afraid of going against the grain. Though more tamed than the main line, MM6 still goes by the same approach by pushing the boundaries on what is contemporary. Whether it's details or cuts, the MM6 line will revisit past styles and infuse their...

The musician wore his custom Maison Margiela jeans with his YEEZY 950 boots and a sweater from his YEEZUS concert merch. I like that we are seeing Kanye in these jeans frequently as they are a piece for his shows. We don't see that often, but as Kanye's style is pretty fluid both on and off...
