SINGAPORE - Heavy rain and unpredictable weather did not deter those eager to get their hands on fashion retailer H&M's Alexander Wang collection from lining up a day in advance.

Some shoppers even started queuing on Tuesday morning, almost 48 hours before the launch. They included full-time national servicemen Sean Tham, 20, and Wayne Phua, 22, who were the first in line at the H&M store in Orchard Building.

The collection, which features sportswear-inspired apparel by American designer Alexander Wang, will be launched at 8am on Thursday.
