Mark Your Calendars: Alexander Wang x H&M
Today’s big news jolted us out of our fast-fashion exhaustion and left us lunging for our calendars to mark the exact day that the Alexander Wang for H&M collection hits store shelves. That is correct, Alexander Wang is pairing up with H&M—*squee!
The heavy-hitting designer is arguably one of the most innovative and urban names on today’s scene, dolling out downtown cool with his namesake label, and ruling the roost at Balenciaga, so news that Wang would take a stab at a collaboration collection with the affordable H&M is… um… kind of a big deal.
Announced to the cool kids at a special Coachella party and via two Instagram teaser videos, the pairing promises apparel and accessories for men and women and will feature Wang’s “irreverent approach [that] will propose a new take on the lifestyle product offering that goes beyond fashion.”
“I am honored to be a part of H&M’s designer collaborations.” the designer told the music fest party-goers. “They are very open to push boundaries and to set a platform for creativity. This will be a great way for a wider audience to experience elements of the Alexander Wang brand and lifestyle.”
Look for the collection to hit 250 H&M stores and online on November 6th.
