On Thursday, Alexander Wang presented his highly anticipated H&M collection to a crowd of celebrities in New York. On offer are pieces for both men and women.
Shades of grey, black and white and a sportswear influence characterize the American designer’s collection for the Swedish fast fashion giant.
For women, the stand-out pieces include, of course, the leggings and crop top debuted by Rihanna in September, but also the form-fitting dresses, which are sporty yet glamorous.
Contrasting with these more feminine pieces are hockey jersey-style T-shirts, thick flat slide sandals and voluminous coats.
Unlike many designers who have collaborated with H&M in the past, ALEXANDER WANG didn’t forget about the gentlemen.
The same sportswear style carries over to the menswear collection, which includes tank tops, shorts, sweatshirts and down coats.
Those who like what they see will have to wait until November 6 to find the collection in H&M stores and online.
The designer collaboration trend first kicked off in 2004 when Karl Lagerfeld created a hit line for H&M. Wang follows in the steps of collaborations with Italian luxury labels Versace, Marni, and Roberto Cavalli as well as French high-fashion brands Lanvin, Isabel Marant and Maison Martin Margiela who are just some of the big names to have collaborated with the Swedish high-street retailer.
