Saturday-November 20th, 2010, the day Lanvin hits H&M stores acoss the US. Me and my ladies hoped in the car and made it to the H&M on Lexington & 51st street in NYC about 7:30am, in hopes to get our hands on the Lanvin for H&M Leopard shoes! The line was not too bad, we were smack in the middle. About 10 minutes later, employees were handing out complimentary croissants & coffee (from this cool looking backpack that we agreed is a must have! LOL). Then came the rules and wristbands for the women's collection (Men's collection was up for grabs to the masses)- Each wristband was color coded with the store code and a different time you were allowed to shop the collection (every 15 mins). This was to make it fair to the shoppers and prevent people from store hopping from one H&M to another. There were a few who tried to sneak there way in line to get more items with wristbands from other stores. Our time was 10:45am and no earlier! We nervously watched the collection dwindle, right before our eyes. The Sunglasses gone, with a blink of an eye. By the time our 10:45 slot was called to venture into the roped off Lanvin area, a lot was gone. We managed to pick up the last pair of Leopard shoes in a size 8, red lipstick and each of us got one of the totes, to support UNICEF.
