This might have been the reason why the capsule collection included a pair of boxing gloves.

Let’s just say that the hype has been real.

The much anticipated launch of the Alexander Wang X H&M collection generated long line-ups and resulted in H&M’s website crashing before the collection sold out in just a few mere hours.

Some fashionistas would willingly swipe their credit cards for $5000 items which were originally retailed at price points of $12.95 to $399. Pieces from the collection can currently be found on e-Bay with a selling price of up to $5000 a piece.

Whether it be termed big spender or smart shopper, let’s give it a new name and call it ‘investment pieces’ with a whole new different meaning here.
