Yes, I'm talking about last night's press preview of the Marni at H&M collection that will be in stores on Thursday.

With sweetheart Tasos of Posh Fashion.

As for the clothes...

...that's what most of us saw and got.

Not that I'm complaining. Partying with lots of friends, 25% off the rest of the collection, free champagne and a goody bag with half a Marni at H&M scarf weren't that bad either.

Good thing I have a sewing machine to hem that poor thing up!

Anyway, the clothes are beautiful, so I won't be the one pointing fingers if you decide to face the queues on Thursday morning. Just do your homework, lock your target and please, don't lose your dignity over a piece of silk. Happy shopping!

You totally cracked me up - 'what most us saw and got'... ha ha!

I think this was one of the collabs I was most excited to see and perhaps get my mitts on... but I don't do crowds or queues!
Tasos looks like a picture of spring in his cropped pants & s/slv shirt!
Smooches,

Do you know if they will restock?

@Spyridoula
The collection originally included a silk carré scarf, which is a completely square (this one http://www.hm.com/us/product/98134?article=98134-B) but in the press goody bag we were handed, we found half of it, cut diagonally so it was a triangle. I guess the PR team did that to make sure they had enough for everyone and maybe so people wouldn't sell them? I really don't know, what I do know is that it seemed wrong and cheap.

@Nina
I don't think they will be restocking, they haven't done that ever before for a designer collection. However, if you keep going in, you might find stuff that people will return.
