My Marni at H&M


This is what I've bought today at Marni at H&M:

Skirt
Gently flared skirt in cotton poplin (gold in a jacquard weave containing glittery threads).
It is very beautiful and changes colour in different light.

Coat
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
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?

  9. Oooh, nice haul. I do like the skirt. :)

    You will find over 1000 Marni for H&M items currently on eBay, so maybe the ladies 'buying everything' aren't buying for themselves! ;)

  12. I liked the look of some of the accessories, but I must admit, the majority of the clothes didn't impress me that much. The skirt looks lovely though, much better in your pictures than it did on the site!
