MasstigeWatch: All you need to know about Comme des Garcons at H&M
So. Thursday, November 13th is the big day: The launch of Comme des Garcons at H&M. You can preview the entire line (plus prices) on the H&M website; I suggest using it to create a plan of action (I, for one, want the inside-out jacket, the asymmetrical T-shirt, the asymmetrical pencil skirt, and maybe the jodhpurs). Racked has photos from the store's Japan debut on Saturday, for another perspective. Now, stores open at 10 a.m. on Thursday; depending on how big a fan you are, plan on getting there early and waiting in line. The rumor, as reported by Fashionista, is that H&M is imposing a two-item per garment limit--if true, this will hopefully foil those who plan on buying in bulk and reselling on eBay (then again, it's bad news if you were one of those people hoping to buy on eBay). The collection is available only in eight stores in the U.S. (four in NYC); here's the list:

New York:
H&M Fifth Avenue at 51st Street
H&M Penn Station
H&M 34th Street at 6th Avenue
H&M Lexington at 59th Street

H&M North Michigan Avenue

Los Angeles:
H&M Sunset Boulevard
H&M Beverly Center

San Francisco:
H&M Powell Street

I'll post an update as soon as I get to work on Thursday (I'll be at one of the 34th Street locations, but I haven't decided which one yet). Good luck and godspeed.
