It will be another 20 days until the Alexander Wang x H&M collection is available to the public before the coveted separates inevitably become the objects of online bidding wars. The curtains on the proverbial shop window, however were drawn open today on the collection for everyone to admire within a matter of clicks. Look closely and none other than Suvi Koponen leads the look book from its opening with seven full looks from the activewear collection. “I’ve always had an infatuation with how performance and activewear is made,” explained Alexander Wang speaking with i-D. “I felt like it’s the most advanced in terms of fabrication, in terms of make, in terms of how things are welded, the way that knits are seamlessly knit. Things really have to perform. It’s not just fashion clothes where things just have to look good, it really has to come from functionality. And that was something that H&M knew very well.” The collection will be officially unveiled this evening in New York and can be streamed live at wangxhmlive.hm.com.
