Versace for H&M Crashes Site...Again.

If you thought the days of Versace for H&M frenzy were behind you, think again.

The Versace for H&M Cruise collection launched on its international sites on Thursday, leading to mass chaos on the interwebs. Throngs of shoppers flocked to the site, causing it to crash for several hours...again. At approximately 6:30AM EST, H&M reps tweeted, "We’re very sorry for the tech problems during today’s launch. We’re working on expanding capacity for more visitors."

H&M also released a statement to Fashionista, saying: "This is a limited, one off collection which is supposed to sell out in a couple of days, but the interest from our customers highly exceeded anything we could have expected."

The H&M site is now sold out of a large majority of the collection, with only a lone purple top and printed ballet flats in a few sizes remaining. Sorry, folks!

Since H&M has yet to launch e-commerce site for US shoppers, stateside fans were jilted out of today's online hysteria. So if you're dying for the fruit-printed frocks, you'll have to go head-to-head with wily eBay shoppers. The prices may seem insane ($385 for a print dress?), but, hey, the heart wants what it wants.
