Designer collabs are great in theory. Who doesn’t want to own a garment by one of their favourite designers, whose products are way out of most people’s price range? But in practice, they’re kind of a disaster. Ridiculously long lines, scalpers, exorbitant prices, and substandard quality of production are just a few problems keeping me from taking a day off from work in order to line up in the autumn chill for like 10 hours.
Looking at these photos from the as-yet-to-be-released collection by Alexander Wang for H&M though, I have to say my resolve is weakening. I love the technical look of all of the pieces, maybe even enough to wait in line with my fellow fashion-obsessed but financially-challenged peers. I’m particularly obsessed with the grey coat and textured neoprene sweatshirt. Also wouldn’t mind owning the white cycling shorts and dark grey backpack.
