This is what I've bought today at Marni at H&M:
Gently flared skirt in cotton poplin (gold in a jacquard weave containing glittery threads).
It is very beautiful and changes colour in different light.
Short coat without buttons in sturdy, textured fabric, with short, wide sleeves with a concealed press-stud.
Front pockets with a flap, and a slit at the back.
Necklace with large plastic flowers. Ties at the neck.
As you can see, my final choices were different from my wishlist. It's mainly because the shop I went to didn't have the whole collection, so unfortunately I couldn't get the swimsuit, which I am most heartbroken about - it is just so cute! However, I'm happy to get this skirt, even though it wasn't in one of my choices. But when I saw the material and texture, I've fallen for it - it's so beautiful! The coat is a little big for me, but they were run out of size 6 already!
I woke up super early and even though I wasn't feeling good, I decided to go, because I knew that I'd regret not doing so (after Versace Cruise for H&M Internet fiasco where I've managed to buy only one item, I wasn't relying on hm.com). After getting to the shop, I got a green tag and the 9.25am entry. There were already some people, but as I expected, there were more grown-up woman rather than the usual crowd. I've overheard some of them saying that they've waited for a collaboration like this for a long time, so I guess H&M had a great move targeting it into a wider audience (with better bank accounts too!). The ladies were literally buying everything - the whole collection for themselves. The shop's manager said that they had the stock worth £70,000, but by the rate everyone was buying, I think it will be a total sell-out. The only thing that seemed not to be very popular were the bags.
Did you get something from the collection?
