Well, the Internet broke last night... Alexander Wang is the newest designer to team with H&M to create a collaboration collection.
Unveiled via Alexander Wang's Instagram, the (very) brief video displays stadium lights flicking on, and a shot clock counting down to zero. These are likely strong hints that the collection will be deeply inspired by, and connected to, Wang's signature sportswear aesthetics.
Wang joins a growing list of designers who have lent their talents to collaborations with the Swedish fast-fashion giant, including Isabel Marant and Maison Martin Margiela.
Since the teaser video was released quietly via social media, a large amount of details have yet to be established. One thing does seem clear however, when the shot clock hits zero, a scoreboard appears with the numbers "11 06." This seems to indicate a November 6 release date.
Alexander Wang is known for taking his dark, simple aesthetics and pumping them up with quality and precision; they're what's made Wang a household name among fashion nerds and hip-hop heads alike.
Looking forward to seeing what H&M does with this hugely exciting opportunity. Stay tuned for updates as this breaking news develops.
