Alexander Wang X H&M
By now you’ve marked your calendars. Alexander Wang’s collection for H&M, announced back in April at Coachella, finally hits H&M stores around the world on November 6. Rihanna—who else?—stepped out in the first two pieces from the collab over the weekend: a stretchy crop top and leggings emblazoned with Wang’s blocky logo. Today, we’ve got three more looks to show you. As the pics of RiRi suggested, Wang is bringing a distinctively sporty vibe to the table. “H&M has done a great job in the past with archive-based collaborations,” the designer said, “but I wanted to create a collection where most of the pieces have been designed from scratch. There are only a couple of items that are updates from past designs. Rather than creating affordable versions of expensive items, I wanted to design true performance pieces that are within the natural price points of sportswear of H&M, so we were able to create the best version of these pieces, through our vocabulary.” In addition to apparel for both women and men, the collection includes shoes and bags, as well as “Objects,” a selection of everyday items that H&M says are “reflective of the Alexander Wang lifestyle, infused with a sense of humor and irony.” Only eight weeks to go until the big day.
