On November 6th, a highly anticipated day to any and all #fashionistas since Coachella, Alexander Wang's collaborated H&M collection hit the stores and the web, launching nuclear wars between Wang-thirsty fashion lovers.

Wake for Wang!

Citizens around the world rose from their beds extra early to battle it out for the coveted collection pieces. The less sane mini-Wang's chose to line-up (some overnight) outside the specially selected stores, while the rest of us sat in bed with our laptop, hopped up on espresso and a protein bar.

D-Day.

Unfortunately, shoppers who woke early were sadly greeted by this message from the unprepared system of H&M's site.
