I showed up H&M on F Street this morning around 7AM. The store was set to open its door for the Marni collection at 8. I figured, if the line was crazy I’d just walk on by and head to the gym for a quick run before work. Turns out there was hardly anyone outside the store! So I joined in the queue and ended up in the second group of 30 people allowed in. It was a little crazy, definitely an intense 15 minute shopping experience! Bags were flying off the shelves, women were just grabbing anything they could get their hands on… I mean, I’ve heard stories from the launch of the Karl Lagerfeld collaboration and I can only imagine how it must have been when they launched the Versace collection…! But I had never done anything like this, it was kind of fun.
I ended up with 3 items, a skirt, a dress and a top, in Marni’s signature prints. My wardrobe is pretty bland, so I figured just the kind of colourful print therapy it needed. Can’t wait to play with my new outfits now 😉
nice prints! i didn't go, but I heard the launch in Paris a couple of days ago was a bit crazy & long lines. A friend of mine was there a few hours before opening just to wait in line to get in.
DC's not the most fashionable city… I think people in NYC, LA and Miami were a lot more into it ;-)I'm not a huge marni fan, but I did like the items I had seen in the previews of the collection and like the idea of getting some prints in my closet.
You are totally right it was like insane and crazy in the store.
I shop in Denmark and we could spend all the time we wanted. Everything was almost gone during the first hour.
I did grap necklaces and t-shirts.
I didn't even realize the accessories where in the cute green boxes at the front 😉 wearing my new marni for H&M skirt today and I love it!!
