When I found out about Alexander Wang x H&M I had a
minor MAJOR freakout. The announcement came during Coachella this year, and ever since the fashion world has been abuzz wondering what this collaboration would bring. Alexander Wang is known for his unique fusion of high fashion tailoring with a street-wear aesthetic. We teamed up with one of our favourite collaborators, Randa Salloum of The-Unprecedented, the incredible makeup artist Micah Gilbert, Videography genius Sarah Boland and our very own Viranlly for a editorial and behind-the-scenes video. We had such a fun day shooting around Vancouver, we were really drawn to clean lines and the industrial feel of the city.
We got to play with the collection last week and we styled 4 looks, daytime, night time, weekend and athletic. We will be releasing one look a day leading up to the launch on thursday, so get excited and start planning what you will be buying on November 6th. In Vancouver you will be able to get the collection at the H&M stores at Pacific Centre and Metrotown Mall.
Look 1 | Weekend
Who doesn’t love a weekend, a time to get out and get yourself prepared for the week. This time of year in Vancouver the weather is prone to change in a moments notice, so you have to be prepared for anything when you step out the door. I wore the mens Quick dry tights which were extremely comfortable to wear, I ran around in them and was able to move easily, while not overheating. The Sunglasses are one of my must-have pieces, they come with 2 bands (black on black and white on black) with WANG written across the back of the strap. Being a Vancouverite the perfect raincoat is one of the most important things you should own. The one from the collection is very lightweight and wicks away the rain with ease. The top of the hood is shaped like a baseball hat with a short brim, allowing you to avoid getting that sideways rain in your eyes. Oh how I hate the sideways rain.
