I guess you could say the new Versace for H&M line got life-hacked. Coinciding with last night’s release event (video coverage after the jump), apparently the entire collection is already available (ten days early) from a Chinese retailer through an online mall called Germany Street.
Still inconclusive as to how this retailer got his or her hands on the line ahead of the release date, we could speculate that it’s all part of the plan. Who knows? But those who were desperately counting down are no doubt clamoring for these reasonably-priced pieces likely to be scarce in the near future. I say reasonably-priced; those prices are in Chinese yuan, so the pieces are retailing a few percent higher on the Chinese market than they will on release day, but surely not enough to hamper sales.
