Attempts to log on to the online shop this morning were met with a message that customers had been placed in a queue, while fans of the eccentric Italian stylist arrived in stores in their droves.
According to H&M, the ornate turquoise and gold-embellished suitcases were the item flying off the shelves fastest, followed by sunglasses and jewellery. When the collaboration was announced earlier this year, Dello Russo said, I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find.'
