KENZO x H&M: The Ultimate VIP Shopping Experience

Fall is upon us, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice style for it. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are the creative geniuses behind Kenzo, and they’ve team up with H&M to bring their hot designs to the masses. 

Being a Virgin Mobile Canada Member definitely has its Benefits. They hooked us up and other winning Members with the ultimate VIP shopping experience and $250 each, keeping Members on the cutting edge of fashion. 

While grand prize winners checked out the collection in NYC, other winning Members in Montreal and Toronto got to unleash their inner fashionista! In the heart of downtown Toronto on Bloor Street is where the party went down. Fashion, food, drinks, what else could you want? 

The store locked down at 4PM and only a few groups of lucky winning Members got to browse the collection before the public. Mini lobster tacos, portobello sliders, polenta fries, and jerk chicken were just some of the delights served to us throughout the night. 

Shortly after arriving we finally got a solid 10 minutes all to ourselves with the Kenzo collection. It was a lot to take in with a short amount of time. But we picked out the Scuba-look Hooded Jacket, embroidered cotton cap, and a patterned silk scarf. 

Kenzo designs are vibrant and electric. Upfront, they may seem slightly overwhelming for some to wear, but their collaboration with H&M strikes a good balance between a new fashion trend while keeping street smart. The collection is full of fun colourful, bold patterns that gives off a youthful flair. 

Even though we got to experience the VIP treatment at H&M, Virgin Mobile Canada has some pretty sweet everyday deals too! Be sure to set an adventure to a nearby H&M to try on the new Kenzo line. Members receive 25% off their entire purchase when you spend $70 or more. Or you find that singular standout piece for your wardrobe, take 20% off one regular-priced item!
