“Wang has explained ad nauseam that his H&M collection is all about performance, and activewear in the form of seamless knitted leggings and tops, neoprene sweats, utilitarian, water-resistant coats and reflective mesh separates took center stage.” – Fashionista
Since it was announced this past Spring, I have been wildly awaiting the Alexander Wang + H&M collection to preview, and we finally got to see what it’s all about yesterday. While my initial reaction was that it’s not as wearable as I had anticipated (e.g. significant branding], I think it makes a strong statement for sport-influenced product and looks really wonderful from an editorial stand point. With neoprene being one of my favorite fabrics to use, I’m thrilled to see Wang continue to inject it into more product, even if it’s lost in novelty in high fashion. What are your favorites?
