H&M announced yesterday during an event at Coachella, in Palm Springs, California, that their next designer collaboration will be with Alexander Wang. This partnership marks the first time that an American designer teams up with H&M on the much anticipated designer collaboration.
The New York based Fashion Designer’s eponymous brand has firmly established itself by continually evolving its urban style since it was launched on the runway in 2007. Alexander Wang’s collections are unprecious and always reflect a sense of ease, making them popular with laid back fashion lovers.
The Alexander Wang x H&M collection will feature clothes and accessories for women and men. The full collection will be available in 250 H&M stores worldwide (including their flagship Dublin store hopefully), and online starting November 6, 2014.
Alexander Wang says, “I am honored to be a part of H&M’s designer collaborations. The work with their team is an exciting, fun process. They are very open to push boundaries and to set a platform for creativity. This will be a great way for a wider audience to experience elements of the Alexander Wang brand and lifestyle.”
And Margareta van den Bosch, H&M’s creative advisor says, "Alexander Wang is one of the most important voices in fashion today. He understands exactly what people want to wear and does it with an energy and passion that’s infectious. It feels incredible to be collaborating with him this year.”
