H&M You Broke My Heart

I just saw a rumor, which I just know has to be true, over on nitrolicious: The COMME des GARCONS for H&M collection will only be released in limited markets in the United States. Basically, the same exact markets that the Cavalli collection was released in. Please H&M tell me why NYC needs FOUR locations, and yet you choose to ignore so many other major metropolitan cities? What about some love for Atlanta, Boston, Miami and Washington DC? How about all of the other fashion fanatics not near a big city? You could AT LEAST offer the collection online (but, oh wait, you don't sell to Americans online).

I am truly despondent and most likely will have to to purchase on Ebay. I am sure there will be a great selection, since H&M famously does not limit the number of items one can purchase, and thus the first few people in line can grab everything and resell it online, as they did with Cavalli.

I apparently need to get more involved in the eBay-ness because I am constantly missing out on the H & M collections....hell, the closest H & M for me anyways is about 500 miles away.

I completely agree. I live in Miami and would love to have an H&M. I fell in love with the store when I last visited New York, they are everywhere over there, I wish we could have one down here.

If you post what you want from this collection in November, maybe I here in Amsterdam can get a hand on some of the items you want and I will ship them for normal costs and exact price. Because I like reading this blog...

Guess what? We just got H&M recently in Atlanta! I haven't been yet, but I was so excited to see that it was opening. So that's a start for somewhere outside of NYC, I guess!
