‘Alexander Wang x H&M’ Launches to Much Excitement and Long Lines

Rihanna in Wang
At Coachella back in April, wunderkind fashion sensation,  Alexander Wang, and retail chain, H&M, announced that they would be collaborating on a wholly original line.

Anticipation has been building ever since.

On Thursday, the collection became available to shop on the Web, while real life H&M locations around the world found themselves with predawn queues, populated by fashion nerds and style-zealots, eagerly awaiting the chance to see the items firsthand and in-person. Racked breaks down what was happening on the NYC lines here.

Instagram pics, public previews on the backs of assorted celebrities (such as Rihanna, pictured above), and even a photo spread or two gave the attentive some insight into what to expect prior to launch. But as of Thursday, folks saw the items for themselves and fully — sweatshirts, scuba dresses pullovers, mesh-paneled leggings, and all — and seemed generally pleased.
