H&M's annual designer collaboration is something that I always look forward to and this year, the fast fashion retailer has joined forces with IT designer of the moment, Alexander Wang. I've been a huge fan of Wang ever since he launched his T by Alexander Wang collection for women in 2009 and since then, the designer has flourished and literally changed the fashion landscape with his innovative sportswear designs and visionary design aesthetic.
Wang grew up in the '90s and this collection clearly draws heavily from that time when bold brand logos were seen all over garments and one's status and prestige was associated with the brands they wore. Rocking some WANG today would totally say that you're a part of the fashion IN crowd without trying too hard. WANG emblazoned sunglasses, sweatshirts, bags, leggings, jackets and shorts have all made it into this first glimpse at the collection and from the looks of it, the collection will have a strong sportswear offering. But this makes complete sense because wearable, contemporary, urban sportswear is the designer's specialty. WANG x H&M is definitely going to be the brand that street style stars and fashion lovers will be coveting this fall, and it's definitely going to be another one of those collections that sells out in a few hours. Look for it at select H&M stores on November 6.

Just in time for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Hugo Boss has released a limited edition BOSS pocket square in support of TIFF's Pocket fund (a charity that ensures kids and youth from less fortunate communities have access to programs that teach them about films, leadership and teamwork). I'm a huge fan of fashion that gives back, and this wonderful initiative is just another reason to pick up one of these charming and stylish pocket squares. Made from 100 per cent silk, this accessory is perfect for adding an interesting pop of colour to your favourite suit, or for sartorially stepping up any formal look. Pick yours up at Hugo Boss locations and show your support by wearing it during the 11 days of TIFF (Sept. 4 - 14)!

H&M just released these two visual lookbooks for its upcoming fall/winter 2014 collections for men and women respectively. Moto-chic is going to continue to be a hot trend this fall, and the leather moto pants and biker jacket for men (seen in the video above) are definitely the must-have pieces from the men's collection. While the colour palette of the men's collection is primarily comprised of black and white, the women's collection is a bit less serious with muted neutral tones of black, white, grey, brown, burnt red and mustard yellow. The must-have pieces from the women's collection are the brown faux fur coat and the mustard leather windbreaker -- they will go with everything in any girl's closet and will easily glam up any look. The silhouettes for both guys and gals this fall appear to be a bit more relaxed but still sleek and refined. From the looks of it, this fall is totally going to be another fun and chic fashion season for both men and women!

Dirk Bikkembergs has jumped on the Orphan Black-bandwagon and moved in a chic, sci-fi creative direction for the brand's latest ad campaign for fall/winter 2014. Model Josh Haywood gets transformed into a dark, edgy and brooding clone with the sole mission of selling Bikkemberg's minimal and modern designs. Luxe leathers combined with impeccable tailoring elevate the jackets seen in this campaign to an other-worldly level that is reminiscent of the costumes seen in Ridley Scott's film Prometheus. I, of course, love this entire ad campaign and have no doubt that this collection will sell extremely well.
