For the second year in a row, H&M has teamed up with top designers to produce what most see as strokes of pure fashion genius. Following last years amazing collaboration with Isabel Marant, H&M is looking to have even greater success with the premier of Wang’s new line, “Wang X HM”. Just as his predecessor’s H&M line, Wang’s collaboration will debut at a much higher price point than H&M’s normal fast-fashion prices. The added value of more intricate designs and better quality fabrics alongside the high fashion name, will most certainly bring even more attention to the already successful H&M brand.
At just the age of 30, Wang is seen as one of the most influential designers that fuel a lot of inspirations in today’s trends within the fashion industry. Not only does he fuel the fashion designs for his own line, but he is also Balenciaga’s creative director, giving him an even greater sense of fashion mastery. Being a New York based designer, after growing up in California, Wang most certainly has great inspirations derived from coast to cost customs, putting his designs among fashion’s elite.
Celebrities like rap super star, and New York Native, A$AP Rocky, are among Wang’s biggest supporters. Whether he is present in the front row of his Fashion Week Show, rapping about him in mix-tapes, or “flicking it up” in showrooms, A$AP rocky most definitely spreads a little “New York Love” to Wang and all he sets to accomplish. A$AP Rocky’s “fashion forward” perception contributes added respect to the constantly evolving work of Alexander Wang
The Wang X HM line is set to hit stores this Holiday Season, on November 6th.
