Street style muse and professional hat-wearer Anna Dello Russo's accessories collection for H&M launches at the Fifth Avenue flagship at 9am, but as of 8:15, the expected crowds had failed to materialize. Our spy found two clumps of fans hanging out in front of the store—one group of three and one group of four. H&M may have predicted this, since they aren't implementing their usual wristband system this time around.
Update: Now that's more like it! By 9am, the clumps had officially turned into a line. By our count, there are about 20 people queued up outside the store.
