Did you get your hands on any of the 109 pieces from the Balmain x H&M collection yesterday? Were you one of the shoppers lined up outside the night before to be the first one to grab that black and white beaded blazer? Did you walk out of H&M with bags on bags on bags full of your favorite Balmain x H&M threads all the while smiling because you grabbed that last Leather and Faux Fur jacket? If you weren’t so lucky and didn’t get your hands on anything, there’s always Ebay which is where a a ton of the items end up but just quadruple the price. There was waiting in line for hours, there were arguments, there was shoving and pushing- it was pretty much a pandemonium. Was it all worth it? Folks on twitter sure didn’t think so (probably the ones who didn’t get their favorite items).
Video has surfaced of those who braved the lines and waited at actual H&M locations .

What a zoo! If you thought you could avoid the crowd by getting your favorite pieces online- WRONG! The H&M website crashed due to the high volume of Balmain hopefuls who sat online for hours refreshing their screens!
