Margiela Mayhem

 

Who partook in the madness of Margeila for H&M yesterday? Finally released after much anticipation, it seems the collaboration launch was not without the standard website crash, the overnight queues, and the crazy that seems to come out with a limited edition designer collab at affordable prices (no judgement – I would lump myself into this category too).

I was bang on time, jumping on to their website and breezing through the initial stages of adding to my cart – I was almost disappointed at how easy it was appearing to be. I mean – why hasn’t the website crashed yet? Mmm… spoke too soon.

It all went wrong at the most important sealing of the deal – payment. After failing all my security questions (what the hell – that was my cat’s name!) my card was officially blocked and I was left to deal with the devastation. I then called my bank in a state of hurried panic – apparently shopping on H&M is not an urgent matter and the call centre was closed. What the hell? What kind of self-respecting bank has calling hours? And who doesn’t understand the urgency of this situation?

But then, a glimmer of hope… turns out the trusting folk at H&M will send out your parcel with a payment slip inside. Seems too good to be true – who sends you something and trusts you to pay later? But then, the website CRASHES. Great.

With some seriously persistent refreshing, I won out and this oversized pea coat will be mine! Had to sleep in this morning after my night of adrenaline-filled fun and dismay (what a rollercoaster) but I woke up feeling that little bit more satisfied that next winter I’ll be strutting around in my dream coat.

  1. Wow, that is quite a saga! But well worth it for the beautiful coat, a classic that you will probably never tire of.

  2. Definitely worth the emotional roller coaster. I’ve been there before.
