It has everything that consists a “hot trend”. All the patterns, colors and designs are harmonically connected together. Not to mention the economical prices and the often occasions that you may find every time you visit it. Is it possible that one store has all those characteristics? Well, yes, it is! One of the favorite stores of mine and not only has those characteristics and the name of it…H&M!
Some words about the history of the store
