Ebay Sellers Are Asking Outrageous Prices For Giambattista Valli x h&m, But No One Is Buying
Ebay卖家对Giambattista Valli x h&m开出了离谱的高价，但没有人买
The frenzy that used to accompany the release of a new H&M designer collaboration has waned significantly in recent years. The last truly blockbuster collection was Balmain x H&M almost four years ago.
近年来，伴随H&M和新设计师合作款发布而来的狂热已经明显消退。上一个真正轰动一时的系列是近四年前的Balmain x H&M。
That collection was so popular that, in some cases, eBay resellers were able to charge more for the H&M pieces than Balmain itself was charging for the real deal, setting an almost impossibly high standard by which all future collabs would be judged.
Take H&M’s most recent collaboration with Giambattista Valli, for example. On Saturday, a handful of looks from the collection went on sale at 10 select H&M locations around the world and on hm.com, retailing for between $18 and $649.
With the full collection not being made available until November, this first little sampling — coming hot on the heels of the collection’s debut on the red carpet of the amfAR Cannes Gala — seemed destined for eBay resale greatness.
But despite the fact that the collection appears to have sold out at H&M stores almost instantly, as of this morning, the bidding frenzy in the resale market of collections past had yet to materialize.
Resellers are trying to charge high prices, but no one seems to be buying. Most of the pieces in the $500 – $1,200 range have few, if any, bids.
A couple of the pink mini dresses are doing OK, but not as well as you might think, especially given that the dress was modeled by Kendall in Cannes just last week.
Other than that, it’s the pieces with the lowest starting bids that are receiving the most attention, although the increases from one bid to the next are pretty middling and in many cases the resellers seem unlikely to turn much of a profit.
