It's finally here! After six months of hype, Alexander Wang x H&M hits select stores at 8am today and hm.com at 10am EST. We braved the notoriously chaotic, invite-only pre-shop at the retailer's gleaming Fifth Avenue flagship in New York City last night in effort to snag a few of our favorite pieces.
Scenes from the mania and our resultant haul in the video above, including the leather jacket, the bikini, and the $299 booties. Press play to hear how the collection measures up IRL, from the fit (which runs small) to material (we're impressed).
