Belgian fashion house Maison Martin Margiela is coming to H&M, and while the prices were drastically toned down for this collaboration, the avant-garde style was not.

The mirrored leggings, asymmetrical dresses, gloves as purses and oversized just about everything might puzzle the average H&M shopper, but the fashion crowd is expected to flock to the nearest store Nov. 15 to score these coveted pieces.

The less daring will find some more basic button-down tops and blazers in tailored cuts and cozy sweaters. There's plenty of stylish menswear, too, from buttoned blazers and boots to printed shirts and denim.

The coolest part? Each piece is inspired by a Maison Martin Margiela design of the past and will be labeled accordingly.

A star-studded celebration in Manhattan Tuesday night let guests shop a pop-up store, and now select items are appearing on eBay, some at highly inflated prices, before the line launches.
