fashion | alexander wang x h&m

November 11, 2014

As you all should know by now, H&M's annual designer collaboration was with Alexander Wang this year.  I knew I had to get my hands on some pieces of this collection because I mean.. Wang.  Clothing and accessories at a cheaper price while still having his name, count me in.  
I wasn't THAT crazy where I'd go line up at stores though.. ain't no one got time for that.  I have classes on Thursdays anyways so that wouldn't have happened either way.  Thank God H&M finally has online shopping, so I got to experience the chaos of trying to cop the collection online along with 92873958 other people.  It took me an hour to buy four items through the website.  A whole hour because the server was crashed due to the high volumes of people, and I swear I clicked the "try again" button at least 300 times that morning.  But I had to do what I had to do.
I love the minimalism of Alexander Wang's work.  Black, white, and gray.  All the pieces have a relaxed feel and are super comfortable.  The material for the crop tops and tank top feel 'expensive' while still being comfy.
My mom went to the H&M in Times Square and was able to get a black "This is an Alexander Wang tank top."  While she waited on line, a sales associate asked if she wanted water.  She tried to be funny and texted me saying "I'll charge you $20 for this water bottle." 
Overall, I'm glad this collaboration happened because if it weren't for these affordable prices I don't think any Alexander Wang pieces would be hanging in my closet as of now.  But H&M made that happen for me.  Wonder who the next collab's going to be with!
