Alexander Wang X H&M: Sport, Performance, Stye!
The capsule collection launched this week has a punchy, sporty and edgy feel, which I love. The women’s collection captures the speed of the city, mixing sports and performance for everyday life. The women’s collection includes 38 exclusively designed garments, as well as accessories and a playful take on everyday objects. The result is a collection to be worn on the street, in the gym, at the club ‒ the way women live their lives today.
Athletic performance wear- Wang’s debut performance wear pieces include quick-dry black running tops and perforated laser-cut shorts, each bonded and branded with Alexander Wang in silver mesh. Seamless performance T-shirts, tank tops and crop tops are knitted in a pointelle pattern with a hidden tongue-in-cheek message that becomes visible when worn. I love the accessories too- Long scuba gloves stamped with a reflective logo, jacquard beanies and compression socks with graphic logo treatment complete the outerwear look. Shoes include a high heel of folded down rubberized leather with a scuba sock, a box heel leather boot, or a high-top scuba sneaker. A leather backpack comes with a hidden branded rain cover in reflective silver and a padded drawstring satchel in rubberized leather. So sexy!
