The October issues are chock-full of previews for what will likely prove to be the most buzzed-about designer collaboration in recent memory: Alexander Wang's upcoming collection for H&M. The designer initially promised fans that his range for the retailer would be unlike anything it's ever sold before, and he was true to his word: Wang's capsule is purely based on performance gear, and in addition to clothing and accessories, it will include a branded yoga mat, boxing gloves and a referee whistle ring.
When it comes to the fashion, the H&M pieces recall not only Wang's sporty spring '15 collection, but also his T line of basics (that are often activewear-inspired) and his football-tinged spring 2010 collection. In fact, according to the October issue of Vogue Australia, Wang is bringing back a version of his best-selling "Freja" booties — the ones that lace up and fold over at the ankle (see above) — especially for H&M, which will retail at $199.
Other items that we're looking forward to seeing in person are some leather sweatpants (which Vogue UK unveiled will retail for around $300) and some mesh tops that are reminiscent of Wang's extreme sports-inspired spring 2012 collection, which range from $130 - $169. The collection hits stores and H&M's website on November 8, and we'll keep you posted as more information on the collab becomes available.
