If activewear is your apparel of choice and you live, breathe and sleep in monochromatic colors, then brace yourselves for Alexander Wang’s upcoming collaboration with H&M. The line, which is set to be released in stores and online on November 6, 2014, represents the first time an American designer has joined forces with H&M.
News of this highly anticipated collaboration broke back in April at Coachella, but only recently have snapshots of the collection been released.
If past partnerships with the international retailers are any sign toward the future, we’re willing to bet that Wang’s line will be extremely successful. In fact, the collection could very well end up being sold out in a short amount of time, forcing any anxious latecomers to scour eBay for remnants as they often had to in the past.
As far as the actual collection goes, chic, yet comfortable seems to be the way. Also, the neoprene trend that has been going on for a while, seems to still be going strong. Though Wang only gave fans a sneak peek of a few pieces, Racked scanned other looks from his collection as they appeared in Vogue Netherlands.
H&M’s last collaboration, which was with French designer Isabel Marant, was so sought after that eager customers slept outside on the sidewalk in order to get in when the store’s doors first opened.
Seeing as the collection will likely sell like hot cakes, we suggest you line up super early (in the literal and cyber sense), especially if you are already eyeing a certain piece. Remember how crazy the Isabel Marant for H&M launch was? We’re guessing this will be no different. So ladies —circle November 6 in your calendar and we’ll see you there!
