New Zealand’s second H&M Store is opening its doors to Christchurch and we were invited, joined by our favourite Christchurch influencers to a guided tour of the new store before the madness unfolded on Saturday morning with people camping out over night to be one of the first in the new store. The Crossing”.
Located in our newest retail precinct “The Crossing”, H&M have graced us with New Zealands first H&M Home department. The new store, wrapped around the corner of High and Cashel in a strikingly designed building both inside and out, caters to all ages and of course their homes too! Refreshingly relevant styles for clothing had Georgia shopping her heart out and the homewares just blew me away as they were all new styles that we haven’t seen yet here in Christchurch.
It’s obvious that H&M design their home wares just like clothing: edgy, current and functional. The colours you’ll see in the home section are bound to shake things up. You’ll see antique blues, millennial pink, golds, olives and organic cotton. If it’s linen or velvets you’re after this is the store to shop, they’ve ensured that they are turning up to impress!
We both enjoyed how affordable H&M was store-wide. This global giant puts a lot of effort into carefully designing their lines and it’s so great that Christchurch is now home to H&M.
If you’re a corporate, fitspo, fashionista or a casual dresser – there’s something for you!
Following the walk through we were treated to a celebratory meal and cocktails at the moody Twenty Seven steps.
