Last night I was honored to be invited to the exclusive launch of the Marni X H&M collection at the H&M Bloor St. store in Toronto. I got access to BUY the collection before it was launched today in stores nation wide. To say that it was pandemonium would be an understatement. After waiting in a reasonable line up for 20 min we were ushered in and all hell broke loose. The ladies section was ravaged in a matter of seconds with girls ripping necklaces off displays and clothing off mannequins. Of course, in classic Canadian fashion everyone was extremely polite while ransacking the place. I managed to get my hands on a few key pieces and of course I did a little shopping for my man!
My favorite piece that I snagged was the long mixed pattern dress. It will be perfect for the summer with a belt. I also grabbed the polka dotted sweater (and one for my mom). The jewelry was impossible to grab but I managed to get 2 sets of clip on earrings. Very chic and kind of fun but definitely not everyday wear. For my husband I picked up this classic Marni t shirt of which part of the proceeds go to help Japan relief. I loved the polka dotted pattern of this men's shirt but I wasn't fast enough to grab it in a women's item. Lastly, these sunglasses are the perfect unisex item. We'll see if I share them.
