Even Wang himself, who currently helms the seat of Creative Director for French-Spanish couture maison Balenciaga, was thrilled by the collaboration.
“I am honoured to be a part of H&M’s designer collaborations,” said the designer early this year. “The work with their team is an exciting process. They are very open to push boundaries and to set a platform for creativity. “
Befitting the current fall/winter season where layering plays an essential part in the art of the season’s dressing up, the ready-to-wear pieces are crafted out from cutting edge materials that reflect today’s advancing technology such as scuba and traditional knits.
For women, the pieces are made to revolve around the lifestyle of urban women who are active around the clock.
The silhouettes are fluid with vibrant sports elements. The bulk of the womenswear collection is made of ensembles while dresses are uniquely made to emphasis the fairer sex’s allure with body-conscious approach.
Though it may be heavy for our climate, its structured appearance adds masculine punch to one’s personal style. At RM 199 apiece, the scuba sweaters with embossed Wang logo across the chest are set to be all the rage, alongside leather shirts and breathable tops.
The Alexander Wang x H&M collection will be available at H&M stores Lot 10 and Avenue K, starting from as low as RM39.90 for a keychain. Good news for those who are planning to get in line: The first FIVE (5) people who made it to the queue will receive a limited edition Alexander Wang x H&M backpack chair.
