I, like most girls, am always excited for designer collaborations with H&M. So you can imagine my joy when I found out that I was invited to the pre-sale of the Maison Martin Margiela capsule collection for H&M. The collection was definitely unique and matched the brand's image. I was amazed at some of the designs such as the duvet coat and glove handbags as they are real statement pieces that will be head-turners. I believe that this collection had something for all tastes, extravagant pieces for really bold girls, and minimalistic pieces for simpler styled girls like myself who still want something unusual in their closet. This is why my two biggest crushes were the candy clutch and plexi heeled booties which were the more down-to-earth pieces of the collection but statements nonetheless.
When I arrived at the pre-sale in Geneva, I was absolutely amazed at the organization. There was a smiling assistant waiting for all the shoppers and helping them find any item they wanted, champagne and appetizers were available on every floor, lounge music playing in the background... damn I wish all my shopping experiences were like this. Let me tell you, shopping with a champagne glass in hand changes a lot. I got to meet some really lovely people and bloggers such as Soraya Bakhtiar and see some friends such as Romina from Blaastyle, Oriana from The Tall Blonde and Elvira from the Russian Code and Tiphaine from Tiphaine's Diary. Thank you again Vanessa and the Edelweiss team for the invitation.
The funny thing is that I couldn't buy any of the items on my wish list at the pre-sale - they were all gone by the time I got there, so I opted for the mens bow tie shirt instead. However later that night I realised that I would hate myself if I didn't get the candy clutch. So next morning I woke up at 7am for the clutch, it was definitely not the same champagne experience, but now I love it that much more.
