Today, the Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration launched in stores and online. If you’re trying to get your hands on anything from the range, we hope you’ve either been standing outside H&M the past few hours, or are standing in line right now, because you’re going to have a tough time buying anything online. This morning, we tried logging on to the retailer’s website, and instead we were greeted with an error message – and we weren’t surprised at all.

“We have a lot of visitors on the site right now. This is due to the high level of interest in our latest collection,” the message reads. H&M promises it’s working to get the site back up and running for the rest of us looking to snap up a criscross sports bra and boxer shorts with “WANG” emblazoned across the front. We just hope they generously stocked the collection because this error message does not bode well for your chances of rolling through your boxing class next week with a brand new pair of Wang-branded gloves.

Oh, and if you got the message in the middle of shopping, before checking out, note that the items will not be reserved until you actually make the purchase.
