This morning the release of the Kenzo x H&M collection was finally there. The website crashed under demand of virtual shoppers, and a stampede of the stores – remember the launch of the Balmain collaboration – was prevented by using a wristband system, letting only people in at 10-minute intervals.

Only hours after items from the collection sold out on the website of H&M, customers were selling their obtained pieces on eBay for in some cases more than six times the retail price. The colorful prints, accessories, sweatshirts and bomber jackets are immensely popular, but you will have to pay a huge amount of money to get your hands on items, like a leather jacket from originally $332,-selling on eBay for a whopping $1499,99.

So which menswear items are a must have for your collection? Here are three pieces:

A down jacket with dessin. It has a daring and bold design and is filled with 90% down and 10% feathers. You can show off your confidence this winter with boots, denim jeans and this jacket.

The white sweater can be a timeless item in your wardrobe. It is versatile and can be combined with a lot of color in an outfit. You can wear it in layers in the winter or just as the top only, when the weather permits it.

A T-Shirt is iconic and doesn’t cost too much money. The bold blue prints can be worn best with a neutral background, for example black skinny jeans and black trainers. This will make the bold statement pop up.
