Alexander Wang and H&M



Hello Fashionistas! TGIF! 
Any big plans for the weekend? I would love to hear about them. I have family visiting so I'm trying to think up some fun things for us to do (just us girls). On to the blog post. I'm pretty sure you're all aware of Alexander Wang and H&M's collaboration, right? This has been in the news since April. I think. This is something a lot of designers are doing, making affordable pieces for customers who love their designs but can't afford the high-end stuff. I think it's smart. Other designers that have done this are: Altuzarra for Target, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and Zac Posen. Narciso Rodriguez for DesigNation at Kohl's, also Derek Lam.  When I first saw these looks for the collection, I was a little bit disappointed to be honest. I was not expecting such a sporty collection. I love that he decided to keep the color palette dark, but the sporty look is not really my cup of tea. The dresses are not so bad - depending on the material - they could work as edgy LBDs with the right heels and accessories; they could go from sporty to flirty. I'm on the fence. As it is a woman's prerogative to change her mind, the verdict is still out until I see the pieces in person. Let me know what you think of the collection from Alexander Wang for H&M? Will you be purchasing any of the pieces on November 6th? Of all the collaborations so far, which has been your favorite?

  2. We're so excited for this collaboration! H&M just opened up its second shop here in Australia, and lucky for us, it isn't too far from where we live!! We can't wait to pick out a few things from the collection. Ahhh you've made us even more excited now!

  3. Alexander Wang is no for his sporty chic designs. I think the pieces I've seen so far are true to his design aesthetic....however, the only thing I'm excited about so far is a pair of open-toe booties!

    1. He is. I was hoping for something a bit different since he is collaborating with H&M and they have more wearable, trendy pieces.
