Versace For H&M Launch – 17.11.11

Fashion
Thursday, 17th November, 2011

Today was the day!

This morning at 9am the Versace and H&M collaboration went on sale! There were queues outside all the places selling it, and online the website crashed and was almost unusable most of the morning into the early afternoon. Donatella Versace popped into the London store this morning (pics below) and seemed rather happy 🙂

Did you go to an H&M today? If you did please send me your pics and I will put them up! (you get credit of course! 😉 )

I went on and tried to get a few things, and did! 😀 I will show which items I got when they come, which is supposed to be next week. I got confirmation emails for all items, so I hope that they will keep their promise and I will get my stuff.

The website had its problems. Apart from it being down, when you got in you could only buy 1 item…Not a quantity of 1 item per design/piece, just 1 item. So if you wanted more than 1 thing, a shirt and trousers for example, you had to check out and then order the 2nd item and check out again. Not too big of a deal usually, but when the site kept crashing it became very hard.

This obviously meant that people would get disappointed as items would sell out fast. I was on the site all morning, and from what I can tell, not all items were available to buy online. For example the Mens boxer shorts came in 2 colours and 4 sizes, and all were “sold out” within 20 minutes of the site going live; The same for the mens scarves; So I wonder if they were available at all online?

The stuff has already made it’s way onto eBay 🙁 Please do NOT buy the stuff from there. I have seen a few people already trying to sell an £80 jacket for £250, it’s a disgrace. The only way we can stop this from happening is not to buy from unofficial sellers on eBay…Unfortunately I guess there will be a few who do buy from them 🙁 If you do buy from eBay please do not pay more than market value.

Regent Street in London looked a little busy…

If you were online on the H&M website this morning then this is probably a familiar site….

More pics…

The queuing system. Seems like you only got 10 minutes to get in and grab what you wanted. When I saw this pic and the queue I decided not to bother going to the store 😛
