It was a preshopping event, from 20h to 22h in which the hundreds of people queuing in the cold would be divided into groups to have 10 minutes to shop the Kenzo collection before everybody else. It did seem like a great thing for me. There I was, super cold, enjoying warm coffee and colourful doughnuts that were served for the poor lucky pre-shoppers.

By the time I finally got in the store, I and dozens of too excited Kenzo fans apparently had the same strategy. When they opened the fence I really wanted to run and grab that dress, I really wanted. But I just could not be aggressive with the other ladies and the desired piece was not mine.
