Balmain x H&M

December 7, 2015

Yet another year of H&M collabs, I knew I wanted this t-shirt in the Balmain x H&M. It's so simple but as I always say, simplicity is key sometimes. There were tons of fashion websites with leaks of the collection ahead of time and looking through the collection, most things were just too flashy for my liking. I absolutely LOVED the beaded, embellished blazer but I know I wouldn't be able to rock it so it would be a waste since it was around $500 if I remember correctly. 
Last year I remember I was in my Event Planning class, about to present my project but still trying to get into the H&M site on my phone and my laptop. I was lucky enough to get 4 things in the Alexander Wang x H&M collection (I have a blog post about the items.) This year's collab was SO much harder to get into. The site was crashed.. you would think that H&M would get their shit together knowing that there's going to be an enormous amount of people trying to get into the site. The collection released at 8am and I was repeatedly trying to refresh and I finally got in at 8:47.. that's 47 minutes after release and everything (besides ugly stuff) was sold out. I was so frustrated because I really wanted the t-shirt! Luckily, one of my friends, hi heej peej, went to H&M in times square and she was able to get these two shirts for me! We both initially wanted the men's ones but they got sold out by the time she got in. The lettering is written in a velvet-like material, which I personally like. I wish I worked at H&M during this collab because employees got a different Balmain x H&M shirt that looked even cooler. But, I know it got pretty chaotic in other countries.. I came across some ridiculous videos. People are crazy.
