The wait is almost over. Tomorrow morning, the most committed of Wang fans (and those who do not have a manager to report to at 9am) will queue around the block to get their hands on the most hotly anticipated high street collaboration of the year: Alexander Wang x H&M. The rest of us will try our luck on the website, battling against the inevitable crashes and trying not to scream when the cropped grey scuba sweater sells out at 9:02am. Can you tell which piece I’m after?
To save your sanity (and that of your surrounding colleagues/class mates) I’d suggest:
– warning those around you that swearing is likely
– opening a browser on anything you can get your hands on to multiply your chances of success. I have two screens at my desk, a laptop and a mobile to hand. It could get messy…
– decide what you want to buy this evening – nothing worse than a 9am mind blank when Wang is on offer at £34.99
– check out the menswear collection. The guys’ version of the grey scuba sweater might even make it to the top of my list
If you’re heading down to a store at an ungodly hour tomorrow morning, I salute you. Good luck.
