We have been teased slowly but surely by one of the most anticipated collabs this year —Alexander Wang for H&M. We’ve seen many designers team up with the Swedish label, from Stella McCartney to Jimmy Choo to Versace. And I love the 3 I just named. But all hail Alexander Wang, Balenciaga’s reigning Creative Director ❤ !!! Who isn’t excited about this partnership? What I really love is that Wang is not putting out a watered down version of existing designs at a discount price point (which drives me NUTS sometimes). Wang said, “I wanted to create a collection where most of the pieces have been designed from scratch. 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.”
Earlier last month Rihanna stepped out wearing pieces from the collection, and today, official images of the collection have been released. Check them out below. The launch party is also tonight, but don’t fret if you weren’t one of the lucky few to snag a ticket…the show is streaming live at 8:15pm EST here. And the collection drops November 6th in 250 stores. Go get ’em, tiger.
