After serving as the fashion designer and creative director for Balenciaga, Alexander Wang took a new direction in his career by becoming the CEO and Chairman for his namesake brand. Since his departure, Wang has kept a low profile until now. According to WWD, Wang will be collaborating with Adidas on a new a line. The line is expected to show this coming September at New York Fashion week.
In the past years Wang has developed a cult following amongst fashion’s youth with his edgy sportswear-inspired and functional-tailored designs. In November of 2014, Alexander Wang delivered a collection with H&M which became an instant favorite by the likes of Rihanna and others. “We sent her a few pieces while she was on tour and we were so happy she chose to be one of the first to wear the collection” said an H&M rep. Items sold out instantly and could only be found on aftermarket sites such as eBay and Grailed for double the price. Given the success with H&M, there is no question that this line will be highly sought after.
