Mission accomplished, Balmain army.
After teasing high fashion fans since May, Olivier Rousteing's labor-of-love Balmain for H&M collection has finally landed in stores—and on the same day, is effectively out of stores. That's right, mere hours (and in some cases minutes) after hitting the shelves at H&M's retailer's across the globe and being made available for purchase online, the entire men's and women's line is gone, save one single item (a basic ribbed white bandeau top, yours for $25 if you act fast).
But whew—in the short time span the collection was available, there was a novel's worth of drama.
Early adopters of this designer capsule collection were certainly peeved this morning, as a massive influx of enthusiastic online shoppers caused H&M's website to crashed almost instantly after the collection first went up for sale at 8 a.m. EST due to massive traffic volumes.
