They don't re-stock, but they do consolidate. Usually the stocks gets redistributed, so it comes out of some stores entirely and gets sent to other stores that also stock it so it's less bitty. Once it gets discounted it can also appear in stores that never originally stocked it, that happened a lot with Versace. It ended up in many stores around the country in their sale sections.

Online the store restocks usually in the early hours of the morning. Well, here in the UK it does anyone. It's around 3/4am usually...

central h&m store in Rome had almost every item still in store this afternoon - i wasn't interested in this collection (as much as i love marni i didn't like anything) but i passed by and they still had plenty of stuff.

if you live in the US, returns or leftover stock are usually sent to the 5th avenue store in NYC.

if the items are defective or damaged they will leave them in the original store.

so..i was wrong, people over here do know about marni cus i went today and all the necklaces,that basic t-shirt and belts were sold out. that blue circle blouse was also MIA, silver sandals were only left in 37, but there were tons of those greenish bags, sofia coppola's PJ combo she wore (i was so disapointed to see that the shirt was 100% polyester and was 120 dollars, i mean ) and skirts of all sorts. basically - either it was sold out or it was left in all sizes. there wasn't any stuff i really liked (merino wool sweater ) but i'm not even sure they had it as it was in price range of stuff that wasn't terrifically sold. they had only few menswear stuff. in the end i bought the sunglasses cus they're surprisingly nicely fitting and with really good quality, IMO.

Here in Toronto, the crowd can't even be considered a crowd. There was a small line in the morning inside the store, and three hours later, the racks were still full. Just by looking at the people, I can say most of them don't even know or have ever heard of Marni and was there just to purchase something to be apart of the hype and trend.

So I usually make my way to school at around 10 in the morning, but instead today I decided to actually go to the H&M on Michigan ave. All I could think of was finding very few items, but I was actually surprised when I was on Michigan ave & it was very quiet. I went inside the store and there was a line no longer than a school bus. I peeked inside to the room and they had EVERYTHING. I was in luck. I literally was there for maybe half an hour. It was my time to go buy and I literally bought all the men's dress up shirts, the ties, the blue bag, the cashmere sweaters, and the vest (although not in small they had a lot of mediums). I was very surprised to see that at 11 something there was a huge quantity of clothes. This collection was very reserved here in Chicago. Most of the people came in after I was done shopping. A very great experience.

uh, we must of missed each other by just 15 minutes. I got there at 11:25 or so and there was a line to get in and it took forever to get though the line. They were letting people through in groups and I was in the last group that got in when there was anything. There were only the parkas with the prints on them left in the women's section when I left (there was a good amount of mens stuff.)

Luckily, the one thing I really wanted was the silk skirt with dots on it. Every time they let a new group of a people in I would see people take it to the dressing room, but then a few skirts always came out of the dressing room. When it was my turn, I ran to the skirts and grabbed my size and I figured out why it was discarded: the skirt is unlined!! So, now I'm going to have to go out and buy a slip (a slip! in the 21st century!) But even then, it will have cost me less than a $100 and I sort of love it.

My experience was not a great experience. There was an Ebayer there and the people in line were fighting with her. People in line were also fighting with the guards. In a way, thank god my skirt was poorly made or I wouldn't have gotten it and I would have wasted two hours.

Woah, were you at the Eaton Center? That sounds significantly less than Versace. Did you see any black flower necklaces left?

Yeah, after I got there I saw a line of a bunch of people. I actually had thought i was going to go in there and find nothing.
I think I went in there at about 11:30-ish.
OH goodness, I would see people with racks of clothes going to pay, and it turned out it was provided by H&M in order for the clothes to not be ruined
Still, that sounds brutal. I also had people fighting with the guards, I was waiting for someone to get kicked out.
I'm still hoping someone returns the vest in a size small lol. I'm going to give it a week since that's when everything else should be back

omg I hate you!
I even had this whole plan of going at 6 and making it to my second class at 11. I only wanted the purple pajama bottoms and unfortunately some are going as far as $200 on ebay!

i worked the H&M downtown Seattle launch (the only store in the Pacific NW; even Portland POWELL didn't get MARNI ) and it was pretty hectic in the fitting rooms! There were 3 sales associates in there the whole time either counting items in/ holding bags of accessories and marking with # tags based on room # or the instant the customer discarded the 'NO' garmets, we garmet cared them (zip, tie, button etc) and threw them into the hands of the 'runners' to be put back on the racks. Of course the MARNI hangers were uber bulky which didn't help matters ( whether the customer had 2 or 7 items to try on, the friggin hangers made it uber awkward and cumbersome)and had ridiculously small hooks for the garmet helper loops which were a total pain in the bum and all of the silky stuff kept sliding right off!


there was a very small room of MARNI which is normally devoted to the Modern Classic dept and just as fast as the racks were cleared out of the MARNI, SAs brought out racks of the regular Modern Classic. While there was some initial frenzied, wild animals let of their cage shopping action (mannequins knocked over, people clearing off the accessories tables in a matter of minutes and armloads of merch scooped up in arms and bags) it did die down by the time i left around 10:30 am ish. No major incidents altho some dumpy middle-aged lady got her feathers ruffled when customers were yanking merch out of each others hands (but what did she expect; if you can't take the heat...I mean that's part of the reason I wanted to work the event ).

I was pleasantly surprised that most of the garmets were WAAAAY cuter in real-life than in the online photos. that striped green tee with vertical ruffle detailing down the zipper was quite charming in person!

By the time I left around 10:30 am there was HALF a rack of mens left! SO no MARNI for me, boohoo. the MARNI madness probably paled in comparison to the rabidness of VERSACE 'devotees' but it seemed as though the group of shoppers that made the MARNI launch were 'in the know' fashion types, given that people in the NW region did have to travel a ways to get to Seattle. some had the high-end MARNI already in their closet and vocabulary.


However, despite MARNI being such an esteemed high fashion label and critics darling, the collaboration seemed akin to an under the radar fashion blip. unlike VERSACE with their media blitzing for their main line and H&M collab, i think the majority of internet savvy shoppers can remember past and current VERSACE campaigns while even hardcore MARNI-vores probably couldn't name a single MARNI campaign/ad/tv show/ celebrity/song that name drops Consuelo Castiglioni for MARNI...for a reason.


Anywhoo, luckily the location i work at is super bougie and upscale so the majority of MARNI from downtown will end up as returns at my location ( i suspect people feel guilty going back doing major returns from the home store and many shoppers trekked from my store area to downtown) . So obviously with Ladies MARNI selling out within like 45 minutes trying anything on myself was out of the picture:

so was MARNI pretty much on par with regular H&M sizing? 1-2 sizes smaller?
I still really want those heavier knit looking leggings and ikat print crop pants...

Thank god, there is a online-shop. I ordered the items which I was looking for, except the dotted dress which was sold out but maybe it will be back in stock after the first wave of returns.
