Alexander Wang X H&M & How We Are Wearing His Pieces...

Like most designers collabs for H&M, King of Sports Luxe, Alexander Wang's collection for the famous high street brand was pretty huge. A sporty, simple and colourless (aside from the flash of neon yellow in one highly lusted over sports bra) collection, it was totally gym friendly (bonus!) and easy to wear. I myself was stood outside H&M in the freezing cold 45 minutes before opening time in eager anticipation. We were given wrist bands with time slots to shop the collection and just 15 minutes to enter the enclosed AWXHM area and get the hell out with as much as you could physically grab. It was chaos. 

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the following pieces -

And here's how I wore them outside of the gym -

Here I'm wearing the WANG sports bra with a By Malene Birger leopard print jacket, H&M trousers and Topshop mules. 

(And here's how I would wear it if I took kickboxing classes but sadly, I don't) -

Another successful H&M collaboration been and gone in the blink of an eye. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on it or have the money to pay for the over priced pieces that are now selling on eBay, here's how some of my fave people have been wearing it.. 

Long time friend of the designer, model Erin Wasson looking 100% original in a cropped knotted long sleeve tee and AWXHM boxing shorts sitting neatly above her belly button, accessorising with her signature boho jewellery and tousled beach locks. I will be copying this look as soon as the temperature is bearable again. Curse you Wang for selling us summer pieces during the winter!

It took me a while to come around to these particular pieces but these girls make them look effortlessly chic. Well, it's not that hard when you can afford those Balenciaga boots....

The beautiful Jourdan Dunn in the sold-out-in-seconds WANG jumper, waxed skinnies and a pair of Timberlands.

Jourdan again backstage at the AWXHM catwalk show in the V cut bralet and mens baseball shirt, sleeves rolled and buttons undone. This is also a great example of what hair & make-up should be teamed with this collection - black lips and slicked hair. All black errrthang.

So what did you think of the collaboration? Overrated? Or brilliantly sport luxe? I know I have no followers as of yet but if you are out there and reading this - comment below!
