“The Very Best of Versace for H&M” launches tomorrow in the UK and this Saturday, Nov. 19 here in the U.S. Are you excited? You should be! But gauging by recent designer collaboration launches (the sellouts; the fallouts), you’d best be prepared going into this sale. The good news is that H&M is controlling the amount of pieces each customer can go home with (so no more watching shoppers ahead of you leave with 20 bags of stuff to sell on eBay). The bad news is, if you don’t get there early, you may not get one of those lucky shopping bracelets. Here are the complete Versace for H&M shopping rules, per H&M:
The first 280 in line will receive one of 14 different colored bracelets, 20 people for each bracelet color. On the bracelet you will be given a specific time for shopping in our designated area. The bracelets are only needed for our women’s collection. Customers buying the men’s collection will not require a bracelet. When your time slot arrives, you will enter the designated area to shop for 15 minutes. Our goal is to create a better shopping experience for all of our customers.
If you are not one of the first 280 in line, you will of course have the opportunity to shop from the men’s collection or within H&M. When the 14 groups have finished their shopping we will open up the women’s collection to all of our customers.
To make sure as many customers as possible are able to buy from the Versace for H&M collection, we have a shopping limit. Every customer can buy from the entire collection, but with a limit of purchasing a maximum of two pieces per product, i.e. not more than two sizes (shoes/garments) or pieces (accessories) per product per customer. The shopping limit covers the entire Versace for H&M collection. Your place in line does not guarantee any items from the Versace for H&M collection.
