This past few days, the fashion world was took by surprise with the announcement of a Alexander Wang collaboration with the fast fashion chain H&M. Reminding that his the youngest designer that collaborates with the swedish brand and also, the first american one. So, an exciting capsule collection will arrive to the stores next November 6th. Besides woman clothing, menswear and accessories will be featured in the collection.
A little throwback:
Born and raised in San Francisco, at age 19 Wang moved to New York to pursue his career dream. After two years attending at Parsons, he decided to debut in the fashion industry and launch his own brand and so, in 2007, he presented his very first ready-to-wear women's collection that was very acclaimed by the critique. From then, he has already won many awards and launched multiple lines of clothing. In 2012, he was named creative director at Balenciaga.
What to expect:
Making a little retrospective from his paste collections and his personal trade mark we can expect an urban vibe with sports references whether when it comes to materials but also with lines and inspiration. Something minimal but very modern, fresh and irreverent is what we will probably get. Let's see in November if my bets are right or not.
