Versace for H&M – FINALLY!!!!!!!

Donatella Versace launches the Versace for H&M Collection at H&M Regent Street, London

Words escape me!  I can’t explain the sheer joy of this day!  I have been waiting for this day for three months, today was the launch of the Versace for H&M collection *beam of light comes down from the sky and shines upon H&M, like an angel* ‘ahhhh ahhhhh ahhhhhhhhhhhhh’.  Donatella herself was at the H&M store on Regent Street this morning to welcome those who stood in a que and camped overnight to be the first ones in the store.  I however, bailed on Regent Street and headed to Bluewater where I stood a better chance of bagging the bits I wanted.  Plus with this almighty flu I have got, a cold morning camping on Regent Street was the last thing I needed.  I had my eye on the studded leather trench coat, heart printed dress and the black silk studded skirt.  Here I recall my experience, would I get what I wanted?…
My Wristband, I’m in!

I got to Bluewater at 8:45am this morning and there was a que of about fifteen people already.  I was already pissed because I could have been there much sooner if it weren’t for the bloody traffic!  We were all given a coloured Versace wristband and given an allocated time slot to which we were allowed to shop the collection for ten minutes only!  I was in the third time slot and I had started to worry about this.  However, at this time I didn’t know what pieces this store would have on offer but I knew there’d be something I’d want. 

Supplies!

I went for supplies and sustenance and returned at 9:30am for my time slot…Oh if only I’d have headed over sooner, as half my group was already in the store and forming a que at the barriers.  I went in and watched as the group ahead of me rummaged through the rails, leaving a path of destruction in their wake.  It’s Versace…How dare they!  The staff booted them out after their ten minutes then had a quick tidy up.  I had spotted my studded skirt on a mannequin, now I had to locate it’s whereabouts in the store.  Where the F*** was it?!  It was our time to go in, we all ran!   I grabbed the studded top as I swung past the rail it was so nicely displayed on, then searched for the skirt.  I had instantly noticed that the trench coat wasn’t there, it will have been a London-only item. 

Urgh, the que ahead of me

“Forget the coat, it’s too late for the coat…find the skirt!” I said to myself.  There were none left, holy shite!  But alas…the one on the mannequin!  I searched for a member of staff and when I found her she was already being interrogated by another woman who wanted the skirt from the mannequin.  It was too late, I failed my quest!  So to console myself, I picked up everything else 🙂  I had arms full of the stuff and the hangers by the way, are gorgeous chunky black flocked velvet with the gold Versace logo at the top.  I could have got so much more, I avoided the printed jeans (which I know I will seriously regret come spring next year!) and also avoided the leggings as there were about fifty pairs still on the rail but got the bits I actually liked.  I did have my eye on a stunning blue/green heart printed dress with fringing detail, and I managed to get that, sooooooo happy!  The website had apparently crashed within minutes and people were struggling to get to checkout with their goods, but congrats to those that did because by the time I got home the website still wasn’t fully functional and the leather trench and studded skirt were both sold out.

A word of advise from the kind H&M guy who stood with me carrying my goods to the tills, try the stores again tomorrow and over the next few days as people will return stuff, so you might be in with a chance of bagging that one piece you missed out on!  Well either that or they’ll just flog it on eBay and we’ll all pay £100 more for it, darn it!  Which, by the way, there are already fifty plus listings of these pieces already up for auction.

If you went on a Versace for H&M quest this morning, what did you manage to get?  Tell me all about it 🙂
