Basically everything i wanted is sold out. Alwyays size 34 goes the quickest. I wish people will return something of the things i wanted. I did get the white leather pants online. Though i wanted them inblack more. In our store about 14 pm everything was almost sold out exept mens and children.

Went in Paris store thos morning, I arrived at 7:15 in the morning (yes I am crazy) because the store opened at 8. There was more than 50 person before me ! They would let us in per group of 50 for a 15 min (!) war shopping experience.

Finally got the 3 pieces I wanted so badly.

Could someone post some pictures of bloggers wearing pieces form the collection or indicate me a few links ?

Thank in advance

Well in Denmark they open at 09 am, and the people who was first in line got there around 5 am. That's dedication! I see a jacket go for over £900 on eBay. How much is a real IM jacket again?

£900 (crazy)? wow! IM main line you can buy a couple of basic tops &skirts with that money.and I am not even talking about etoile.
every HM collaboration gets these crazy prices in that week and then silently prices go down. I would prefer to use that kind of money for main line in case of HM stuff

at presale in Istanbul all gone.lets see if any piece left my size today

P.S. I am super happy I did not go to HM and wait queues for hours this morning.I can't.not again after marni for hm experience

The jacket going for that much is the black tuxedo jacket which wasn't actually at the launch event, we couldn't find it anywhere and we were the first there. So perhaps it was just in very limited quanities... but even so, strange piece to be going for so much.

I had a meeting quite early and I couldn't go. But my cousin got up at the break of dawn and got everything she wanted. She spent a small fortune there, they were clearly not reinforcing the 4 pieces limit.

Everything looks absolutely amazing, i used to buy tones of Isabel Marant, before it become a "Bond Street" brand, and to be honest there is hardly any difference. Particularly on the big coat i really wanted. It looks superb. She also bought the boots, that she had no intention of buying initially because we thought they were going to be some cheap HM copies, but I was gobsmacked at the quality. It's basically the same boots.
Congrats to the people that went there, you got some really good bargains, and now i'm going to cry myself into a corner for not going.

Even so, surely you can get a real IM jacket for that kind of money? I'd rather spend on a real IM piece that more people have, than paying so much for an H&M piece even if there's only 100 people in the world who has it. Especially because it's not even anything special looking. But to each their own.

Here's the auction: http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=331062274186

Interesting that bidding went from 100 to 950

The website usually restocks in the early hours of the morning. It's not always a literal restock, but the stock levels refresh, this takes into account the stock that people have checked out with and then decided to go back into their order and delete. This stock doesn't automatically go back as soon as someone does this, it happens once a day in a block, so you may find quite a few items come back in!

I think a lot of people will have bought whatever they could get to checkout and then will reassess tonight..
