I don't know how I feel about this collab... the fact that 99% of it will fly out of the store the first day only to be resold on ebay for a 30x markup makes me cry, as well all the guys who will be wearing the polka dot polo with a popped collar.
I like some of the women's pieces, especially the first skirt, the side-zip jacket and the polka dot layered blouse.
I guess most people don't know is that two blouses and a skirt's worth of Cdg H&M is probably what you can get an authentic CdG piece for on ebay, but it's better for me if they don't *evil cackle*

I think I might be sitting this one out. I am trying to be disciplined in the art of shopping, saving my money to get a few great, quality pieces every now and then instead of tons of high-street junk (I'm guessing that H&M CdG is not going to have stellar construction or materials).

It is said that this collaboration is being done to publicize the arrival of H&M into Japan, and I don't feel right buying into a marketing ploy. This doesn't mean that I won't be scouring the interwebs for reviews on the clothing when it does come out... I am, after all, insatiably curious!
