6 Things We Want to See From Alexander Wang x H&M . . . and 1 Thing We Don't

Apr 14 2014 - 1:50pm

By now, we've had a few days to process the news about Alexander Wang x H&M [1] — and, though the passage of time has done nothing to temper our enthusiasm, it's certainly given us a chance to think.

As our brains drift back to successful collaborations from H&M in the past [2], we can't help but dream big when it comes to this collection. And like kids gearing up for Christmas morning, we're sending a letter to Santa asking for all these goodies under our tree this holiday season . . . and the one thing we'd rather do without!

Parental Advisory Sweatshirts

The anti-censorship design from Wang's Spring 2014 collection was so standout that it has been worn by style stars like Rihanna [4] and has become the centerpiece of the season's campaign [5] (which was shot in the girls room).

Rocco Bags

If you know one thing about Wang, you know Rocco [7]. The studded leather tote has become the signature bag of the label, and no collaboration would feel right without it.

Heat-Sensitive Clothing

Ever the showman, there's good reason that these seats are always the hot ticket in town come New York Fashion Week (even when Wang takes his show on the road to Brooklyn). For his latest outing [9], Wang closed the runway with a procession of heat-sensitive clothing that transformed from black to bright.

Glow-in-the-Dark Dresses

But then again, nighttime's when Wang really shines. And we can think of no more exciting a prospect than re-creating the designer's Spring 2013 runway spectacle [10].

Shoes

We've waited at one or two sample sales in our day to get our hands on Wang's coveted heels. But H&M [11] promises that there will be accessories, and should the designer bring footwear to H&M, we wouldn't have to hold off until prices get reduced.

Objects

Let's face it, Wang's not just about the accessories and clothes — not when quirky yoga mats [13], playing cards [14], and even inflatable pool sharks [15] are in the mix.

An Insane Free-For-All

Then again, if the collection were to be this amazing, we might have a repeat of last August's T by Alexander Wang [17] giveaway — and we all know how that went [18]!
