I didn't need to buy it. Nobody forced me to buy it. But I did.
I think its the allure of knowing the H&M collaborations always sell out and just generally getting caught up in the hype of the whole collection launch.
I didn't brave the shop, I didn't queue for hours I simply calmly ordered my t-shirt online.
I chose this one from the mens section. They had the exact same print on a version for women I just prefer the loose and much more comfortable fit of mens tops.
I actually orderd this the day after the collection's initial lauch and there was still quite a lot of it left on the US sight. I've noticed that with this and previous designer collaborations that the menswear doesn't seem to sell out at such a rapid rate as the women's. Always good for me, in general I much prefer the simple styles and a more oversized shapes of mens clothing.
It was an unnecessary purchase but I still love it.
So that is all that matters!
