H&M celebrates their tenth year of designer collaborations with one that got my heart beating fast when it was announced two days ago: Alexander Wang for H&M. For those of you not aware of this amazing designer, Wang is American, hailing from San Francisco, and just thirty years old. He launched his first collection in 2007 and is most famous for his “off duty model” clothes – think downtown cool with a luxe twist. He also is Creative Director of the venerable French house, Balenciaga, and has a successful diffusion line, T by Alexander Wang.
I have blogged before about the H&M collaborations, which run from household names like Karl Lagerfeld to more cultish designers like Isabel Marant. I was lucky enough to DJ at the launch of Isabel Marant pour H&M in Dublin last year so am already crossing my fingers that I’ll be on the decks again at this launch!
I’ve posted some of my favourite Wang designs below; perfect examples of his signature studded bags, relaxed leathers and slouchy sportswear vibe. Hopefully these are the kind of things we can expect when the collection launches on November 6th.
