The most anticipated Balmain collection of H&M has received much publicity in the fashion industry when it launched in stores and online. And like many hyped up fashion styles, the collection has sold out almost immediately; even though the clothes were pretty much expensive.

If you are just a regular shopper like most of us, you’d probably think twice at buying anything from this collection. However, if you are someone who buys Balmain dresses, then a $500 dress won’t bother you at all.

Highly anticipated collections easily sold out. Here are some ways to shop for the Balmain x H&M collection.

  • Lining Up at the Stores Early

Before going to the H&M store, it is very important that you know about the store’s shopping rules. The first 420 people in line are divided into 14 groups (group of 30). Each will be given a time slot. So if you want to have your pick at the exclusive pieces, then you better be among the first 420. After that, the store will be open to the public.

  • A Buddy System

A much-anticipated collaboration like this would attract lots of people. And by “lots”, it means that you might have to stay in line the night before. So invite a friend to stay in line with you or take turns in shifts.

  • Know your Size

Note that you can only buy 2 of the same styles. Therefore, it is important that you know your size to prevent you from going over the limit.

  • Bookmarking the Page

If you are shopping online, bookmark the page of the collection and have it opened before 8AM Eastern Standard Time.

  • Pay as you Go!

As soon as you’ve found an item that you want, proceed to checkout immediately. If you wait until your cart is full, some of the pieces you like might be sold out by the time you checkout the items.
