Though their collaboration was announced in April, Alexander Wang and H&M’s sporty collection is now out in open. The much-awaited collection is designed to be worn on the street, in the gym, at the club. The all-black line up includes scuba dresses, gray pullover sweatshirts, mesh-paneled leggings, sports bra, leather joggers, parkas, swim goggles, boxing gloves and more that will be listed under Men’s, Women’s and Objects on AlexanderWang.com.

Alexander_Wang_H&M_shoes_3WWD brings our attention to the line of funky and sporty footwear from the collection. Comprising of lace-up stilettos, perforated heels, scuba boots and boxing-style men’s shoes, the American designer has stated that he has also resurrected the Freya boot from 2010 for this line.

Alexander_Wang_H&M_shoes_2Encapsulating the experience of designing such extraordinary shoes, Mr. Wang stated, “I started thinking about the components we wanted to have, and about the [fashion show] as well, because I love having options. I looked at a lot of different heel heights and insoles as well as lug boots. [With the Freya], there was this total use of neoprene and aqua zips. When we got into it, we decided to refresh it with an aqua sock with a welded zipper — it just felt obvious to do. I thought, ‘Well, that’s perfect.'”

Alexander_Wang_H&M_shoes_1Teaming up with Alexander Wang has been the first of its kind for the Swedish brand with an American designer. The outcome which is already unveiled in a look book will hit the shelves on 6th November.

Alexander_Wang_H&M_shoesAlso to mark the partnership and lure clients to shop, Alexander Wang and H&M has put up a vending machine at the H&M flagship store at 589 Fifth Avenue & 48th Street! Shoppers who purchase goods worth $50 or more will receive a special token that can be used to collect custom-designed Alexander Wang x H&M water bottles from the dispenser.
