“I don’t do any sports,” Wang admitted recently. “I wear sports clothes because I feel comfortable in them.”
Couldn’t agree more with Alexander Wang on that statement, and I couldn’t be more excited about working with H&M on this post. Secretly, when I worked with them on a Fall Fashion post I had my fingers crossed that I would hear from them in regards to the ALEXANDERWANGxHM collection, and I’m glad to say that I did.
As one of the most important voices in fashion today, Alexander Wang X H&M will be available in 250 stores worldwide, and online starting November 6th.
The Alexander Wang x H&M collection will feature apparel and accessories for women and men that captures the speed of the city, mixing sport and performance to create a new street-chic wardrobe. The collection is full of experimental and cutting-edge techniques: such as laser-cutting, embossing, foam-injecting and bonding. Technical details and fabrics are used for both function and fashion, including Wang’s first ever performance wear pieces for both the street and the gym. In addition, the collection will propose a new take on a range of lifestyle products that go beyond fashion. For the first time, an H&M designer collaboration will have an object collection, a humorous take on everyday items that complement the collection.
Unfortunately the store here in Louisville won’t be carrying the collection, but you best believe I’ll be camping out online to place my order on November 6th. You can visit H&M‘s site to see if your nearest store will be carrying the collection. As I’m sure the collection is sure to sell out quickly I’ve already got my favorite items picked out to make for easy shopping once it goes live, and I’d recommend you do the same. Three cheers to H&M for bringing Alexander Wang’s genius to the masses, and I’m glad to be part of Team Wang x H&M.
