We'll admit our March Madness brackets were more an exercise in guessing and checking than authoritative predictions. But, it's only because the competition was comprised of basketball players and not, oh, say, designers we're so obsessed with that we can give stat-filled rundowns for each of their collections. When it comes to Alexander Wang x H&M, we're definitely covered on this front. Yes, we're collaboration analysts through and through, having put in our time on the court (a.k.a. in the trenches shopping for pieces at the crack of dawn), and feel confident we can call out what to look forward to come October.
We're expecting co-branded merch that boasts the best of both labels. You know, downtown edge at an affordable price. To be more specific, we're predicting practical handbags that can transition from day to night. Leather jackets with enough shape to carry an entire outfit. Flattering T-shirt dresses you won't take off from Friday night to Sunday night. And, likely some walkable wedges that match pretty much everything. Call it wishful thinking, but we're pointing to the outfield and expecting this collaboration to be a home run. (Yes, we realize we're mixing and matching the sports references here, but only because we feel like this one is MVP of everything.) Click through to see six items we're hoping to score (for a lot cheaper than usual) when the game begins for this epic fashion mash-up.
