h&m lanvin queue regent st.jpg

It was one of the biggest build-ups to a designer/High Street collaboration lately, so it's no surprise that Lanvin for H&M sold out within hours of its London launch. Shoppers camped overnight outside H&M stores to get their hands on Alber Elbaz's debut line which officially went on sale yesterday. The first shopper to queue outside H&M's Regent Street store arrived at 8.45pm the night before.

Doors opened at 9am to hundreds of customers eager to buy cut-price designer items from a printed cotton bag £1.99 to a yellow one-shoulder dress for £99.99. H&M confirmed many of the items had sold out within hours, but more items including menswear would be available today. Online, many pieces had also sold out but a few are still left. Tell us, did you queue up?
