Alexander Wang for H&M hit stores this morning, and there were plenty of shoppers in line by 5am. In fact, a tipster shared that the first person in line showed up Michigan Ave at 8:30am yesterday. Those who showed up outside Michigan Ave before 6am received for wristbands for 9am shopping windows.
On State Street, the line didn't start quite as early, but by 8am sharp, the last of the wristbands were handed out.
At both locations, thescuba sweatshirts were the first to go. Accessories like goggles, bags, and shoes were also highly coveted items, and it's likely that they'll be sold out by the afternoon. There were shopping limits, but even so, most shoppers left with big bags full of Wang. The final shopping windows wrap around 12:30, so if you didn't come out this morning, you can swing by to shop what's left.
