Maison Martin Margiela is one of those brands that you either like or you don’t, so of course the company’s MM6 diffusion line is similarly divisive. I don’t get the urge to buy or wear all of Margiela’s stuff, but I do have a healthy respect for how the brand sticks to its distinctly urban off-kilter aesthetic and appreciate a lot of the pieces that it produces.
The Maison Martin Margiela MM6 Slouchy Leather Hobo might just be my first piece from the brand, though. The signature Margiela triangular hobo shape paired with beautifully distressed leather just can’t be beat for the price if your personal style tends to skew a little bit industrial-chic.
I bet that this thing would be a giant black hole of nothingness once I put all my stuff inside, but as a longtime giant hobo enthusiast, that’s a drawback with which I’m willing to contend. Plus, all of that space gives you more room to stow your stuff, even if it later makes it impossible to retrieve said stuff in any sort of convenient or timely way. We all make sacrifices for fashion, and that’s one of mine. Buy through Saks for $380.
