Those of you heading to H&M at the buttcrack of dawn tomorrow morning for the Margiela collaboration are probably tucked in already, but if past experiences with the fast fashion behemoth teach us anything what you should be doing is devising a shopping strategy. Already crossed that off your checklist? We salut you, highly organized Maison devotee! Having trouble making a wallet-friendly wishlist? Consult Racked National for its budget recommendations under $150. Not sure what lies ahead? Better study Racked NY's detailed breakdown of the wristband system—same procedure as Boston's Newbury Street and Downtown Crossing stores!
