When it comes to heavy-hitting shopping, the patient surely are rewarded! Net-a-Porter.com's seasonal sale stole our attention today, and we're pretty sure you're about to lose some time to the ecommerce giant too. Spotted: Isabel Marant's Fall 2013 runway wedge booties, the lace Diane von Furstenberg dress we've been eyeing for months now, and a neon Jimmy Choo bag that would get just as much love as the simple black purse we've been toting. Click through, but forgive us if your credit card gets used more than once.
We might have been waiting for the Isabel Marant for H&M collection to drop for months, but it only took a matter of hours for the collaboration to sell out. Now, if your first thought is to go to eBay for a savvy score, you might want to think again. With auctions for the iconic embellished jacket escalating to $650 ($250 more than the $399 retail price) and with options to buy the piece instantly for as much as $1,200 plus shipping, at this point, we'd sooner opt for a piece from Isabel Marant's actual collection. That's why we've rounded up our four favorite pieces available right now for you — with not a stitch of clothing over that $650 benchmark. And the best part? There's no online auction anxiety necessary.
From hosting her recent store opening in LA to starring in her campaigns for almost a decade, Milla Jovovich can claim more than a passing friendship with Isabel Marant. So who more appropriate to dish on the collection on the eve of its opening to the public? (It's almost totally sold out. We know. We feel your pain). Read on to see what the charming beauty said of her designer pal yesterday.
Today is the day we've been waiting for! H&M's collaboration with Isabel Marant will finally be in stores on Thursday, and if you're planning on braving the crowds to shop it, there are some new rules you need to know.
The first 420 customers — a sizable increase from the previous 300-customer rule — in line at each store will be sorted into groups of 30 customers. Each group will wear differently colored wristbands and will have 15 minutes to shop the collaboration. After a five-minute break, the next group will be let in.
If you'd planned on buying eight pairs of those fringe boots, think again — you can only buy four of each item in the offering. Previously, H&M only allowed three days for shoppers to make returns of its collaborations, but now it's giving us a full seven days. After that, all returns will receive a store credit.
And before you gas up the car and head out, consult our list of which locations will be receiving shipments.
We've been talking, writing, and dreaming about Isabel Marant's upcoming collaboration with H&M for six months now, and the pieces will finally land in stores and online today. The shoes, clothes, and accessories will be available in select stores on Nov. 14.
"This collaboration with H&M was a very nice opportunity to redo what I love in my collections and share this love with a wider public," Marant said in a recent video. Marant also talked to us about the collaboration, but largely she's allowed her work to speak for itself. The partnership includes the same kinds of cool clothes her female customers have loved for years, as well as her first efforts for men and tweens.
Getting ready to shop the collaboration? A look at all the pieces, their prices, and more images of the offering, here.

Everybody, it's time to set your alarms! In less than 24 hours, Isabel Marant for H&M will hit stores — and if you're still deciding on those select pieces to purchase, why not take your cue from these stylish celebrities? Right now, just across the pond, Sienna Miller is cozied up in an oversize cardigan, and last night, Milla Jovovich donned the covetable collaboration to celebrate its launch in New York. These style setters are not alone. We've rounded up Hollywood's hottest to don Isabel Marant — including, of course, the ever-buzzed-about H&M collaboration — here, in the gallery.
Maybe the royals really are just like us! As it turns out, we're not the only ones who've fallen hard for Isabel Marant for H&M — Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden made an official visit to Cambridge in a stylish and affordable ensemble that included a very familiar looking jacket and heels. That's because we've had our eyes on them ever since we got our first glimpse of the collection!
Combining the collaboration's textural jacket ($399), tasseled earrings ($25), pendant necklace ($35), and studded suede pumps ($199), did Victoria's early debut of the pieces — the collection doesn't hit stores until Nov. 14 — make you dream of being a princess more than ever?
