So I didn’t get a Balmain x H&M piece, and to be honest I couldn’t be bothered to even try that much. It was impossible for myself or anyone I knew to get on the site all through yesterday, the site crashed as soon as the collection went live at 8.00am, and now I have discovered most pieces are sold out already, and now selling on eBay and I am like, what?
I also read online that many people camped outside the H&M stores in London overnight and I can’t understand why anyone would do that, except it is a business decison and you plan to sell whatever you get online. I have stayed outside a Next store few hours before 9:00am on a Boxing Day and that is the craziest shopping thing I have ever done. It was also many moons ago, when I was single and free, I can’t imagine doing that now.
I need to understand why everyone is so crazy about the Balmain x H&M collection? The craze this time is even more than the Alexander Wang x H&M collection that happened some years ago, and I just don’t get it.
I saw a video on Youtube some days ago and it was madness, the rush to grab clothes off the racks, they were not even checking for sizes and all, they were just grabbing. Most of these grabbers are not die-hard fashion fans, because most of these pieces have ended up on eBay for over £200 or more and that is a FACT. I find this so very annoying, when people who want to wear the pieces cannot get them, and people who just want to make money off the brand do get them, but I guess H&M/Balmain don’t care as long as they are smiling all the way to the bank. It is a sad time for the ‘real’ fashion lovers.
Anyways, over to you, were you lucky enough to get a piece(s) from the collection? What do you think of this craziness? Sound off in the comment section.
Thanks for reading.
