The collection is the most contemporary release from H&M to date—each garment paying homage to a specific avant-garde creation Margiela has brought to the runways over the course of the fashion house's 23-year history. Comprised of 62 items for women and 42 items for men, each piece is labeled with the specific season from which it originated.

Not only will there be fresh homemade waffles for sale (apple sausage and potato crumble anyone?) but a wine pairing and a prosecco cordial offering to boot. Cash only, 12-3 p.m., 1415 Green St.
