I shall spare you the talk of "ethnic bauhaus" yada yada review of the collection (any browse of the net will suffice) but I always wonder how come people buy such expensive African print stuff either from this collection or from Burberry Prorsum when a real African shirt costs less than 2 bucks (trust me, I know, I went to the goodbye party of the Comme des Garcons guerilla store in Beirut wearing my own shirt - thank you Rachid - at a time when the shop was selling its own super overpriced version of it, and the manager of the shop thought it was something I bought from them!).
But also, if I am commenting of this its because of what happened:
As I was snapping photos of the window of H&M I was confronted with a silly "no photography allowed" from two people working there... Which is ridiculous, details of the collection are available everywhere (and Chinese sweatshops are actively doing knock off at three-shifts a day speed)...
But my reply was about me owning a blog and me getting them free publicity and frankly my reply was a bit crude and sort of sarcastic in tone... However, the two people in question immediately backtracked, and offered me (no, not a piece of the collection) but a VIP card for the 8th in whatever shop I desired.
In itself the card does not have privileges as it is still a "first come first served" event but I still thought it was awfully nice of them. Now, if I am going ot use the card of not it would be another matter altogether.
