Today is our third of four looks from our #ALEXANDERWANGxHM editorial we shot last week.
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 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 3 | Athletic
Further proving the versatility of the Alexander Wang x H&M collection we decided to take the collection for a spin, literally. We headed down to the new Ride Cycle Club, and the backdrop was perfect, mimicking the same feel of the collection. The cycle room is lit by candle light and surrounded by black walls. For this look I paired my favourite leather shorts from the collection, with the leather baseball inspired shirt with snap buttons. Considering I was wearing leather shorts and a leather shirt, I was surprised how easily I was able to move in them. I’m not exactly the pillar of fitness, but if I was, I would do it in this look. I finished the look with a pair of patent leather high tops to round out the urban feel to the collection. One of my favourite “objects” from the collection also made it’s debut, the black leather boxing gloves which feature Alexander Wang’s initials [ You can see them in action in the BTS video below, I had a bit of a Rocky moment]. Randa went for the leather jogging pants and paired it with one of the sports bras from the collection. While the sports bra could be worn in an athletic setting, or it could also be worn under a blazer for a night out look. This proved yet again that there is no “right” or “wrong” in how you wear the collection, so we challenge you to think the same.
