Chic Crave: The H&M x Balmain Rundown

I’m sure you’ve all heard about H&M’s latest collab with Balmain. 

And if you haven’t – where the hell have you been?! Get it together. 
H&M just released a list of how to shop the collection (clued in about this from my friend Mikey who is LIT-ERALLY *Rachel Zoe voice* obsessed with this whole movement and checks the H&M website and Instagram daily.) 
This is pretty smart, considering all the madness behind the Alexander Wang’s collab last fall. 
So what’s the official H&M 411?
1. There is a restriction on how many items you can purchase per piece. Online shoppers can buy one piece per product (Example: one jacket, one size) In-store shoppers will be able to purchase two pieces per product. 
2.  If you’re about the in-store shopping life, you must be one of the first 420 shoppers in line to gain access to the store. The 420 people will be split into 14 groups of 30 and receive a colored bracelet  with 15 minutes to shop the collection. Other customers without a wristband will be able to shop the after the last group shops the collection. 
3. The collection will be available in select stores and online at 8 AM on November 5th. 
4. Returns will only be accepted until November 8th. 
4. (INSIDER TIP) As an employee from H&M stated, the stores will not be getting access to all the merchandise. Select pieces will be available in store.

One thought on “Chic Crave: The H&M x Balmain Rundown”

  1. Wow – they are really limiting the shopping experience, which sucks. However, I am LOVING the biker pants, thigh highs and that FUR.

    Probably will still just grab a tee and be happy, though 🙂
