SheFinds is reporting that an employee in a New York retail store leaked the news that a launch date of June 2013 was announced internally at a recent staff meeting. That's in line with H&M's official statement that a shoppable website would be ready by "the middle of 2013." We've reached out to H&M for confirmation, but have not heard back at the time of publication.
UPDATE, 10:00 am: Per an e-mail from an H&M press representative, the company's official stance on the matter is as follows: "We do not have a set date at this time."
