Alexander Wang x H&M

The Alexander Wang x H&M collection is only one day away and we are unbelievably excited!

Alexander Wang, the first American designer to collaborate with H&M, decided to create a collection of fashionable athletic wear – what he calls “athletic fashion.” Everyone wears their gym clothes as multi functional fashion nowadays so Wang’s collection is right on the spot. I know I spend most of my days at home in sweatpants and sports bras. I’m obsessed with workout clothes – even though I don’t work out that much, so any opportunity and excuse to keep that as my staple wardrobe and I’m running with it!

 

“I live in gym clothes, When you go out on the street, it’s the uniform now.”

~ Alexander Wang

The clothes are fully functional so they can cross over as both workout gear and as everyday fashion. For example all the leggings are made from breathable, quick drying, stretch material. For those who are working out these are all important functions but if you’re just wearing it casually you have all the added perks!

See the complete lookbook below and shop the collection on the H&M Website on November 6th!
