Continuing their long line of successful designer collaborations, H&M have announced their latest plans to release a collection with innovative designer Alexander Wang. Margareta van den Bosch, H&M’s creative advisor, confirmed the news by stating that they’re incredibly excited to be working with one of fashion’s most talented designers:
“Typical for his irreverent approach, Alexander Wang will propose a new take on the lifestyle product offering that goes beyond fashion. 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.”
Wang, who designs not only for his own eponymous label but also for French fashion house Balenciaga, commented that designing the new collection with H&M is an interesting process and he is proud to present his designs to a broader audience who will have access to his pieces through the new collection:
“I am honoured 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 pushing 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.”
The collection will include pieces for men and women, as well as additional lifestyle designs. The Alexander Wang for H&M collaboration will hit 250 stores on November 6th and will also be available online.
