Remember when Marni for H&M dropped in stores and people went completely crazy? Well, it appears as though someone who walked away with armfuls of merchandise regretted their purchase. Writes a trusted Racked informant:
I just left Wasteland on Melrose and someone had just dropped off a boatload of the Marni H&M stuff, like the whole women's collection! No accessories or shoes. There was a couple of men's pieces like the sweater and jacket.
It was all priced about 60% less, so like tops and skirts that retailed for $79 were marked down to $28 and that blue circle dress that was $99 is now $40. I saw the polka-dot black cropped short-sleeve jacket for $32. And it was all size 4. Also I saw a Versace H&M black studded pleated mini skirt (size 4) for $35.There you have it. If you're still jonesing for a piece of the collaboration, you better get over there stat.
My guess it's a stylist or some celebrity who got it all for free and now unloaded it. The pieces looked unworn.
