Alexander Wang

  • Stars at H&M

Following on from Isabel Marant, Karl Lagerfeld and Alber Elbaz, Alexander Wang has now designed a collection for the big Swedish brand. A fashion editors' favourite (led by Anna Wintour) and artistic director of Balenciaga since 2012, this gifted young man has made his mark through a feel for contrasts, blending refinement and imperfection. The Alexander Wang x H&M collection will offer clothes and accessories for men and women. On sale from 6 November in 250 H&M shops worldwide.
