When it was announced today that Nina Ricci would be collaborating with The Man Repeller, the news caught us slightly off guard. It's not that we wouldn't be thrilled to tote the partnership's fittingly off-kilter yellow and green take on the iconic Marché (nor that we couldn't imagine blogger Leandra Medine doing the same), it's just that we never saw the collaboration between two brands coming.
The Man Repeller, who's no stranger to guest designing for such labels as Superga, wouldn't be the first name to pop into our heads when thinking of the sophisticated Parisian brand. And maybe that's the beauty of it! Still, we couldn't help but think of a few unexpected partnerships of days past, and so we're taking a trip down memory lane to look back at some of fashion's most surprising collaborations.
