Alexander Wang x H&M Ad Campaign
The official ad campaign for the upcoming Alexander Wang for H&M designer collaboration, featuring football player Andy Carroll and kick boxer Rivaldino dos Santos (and shot by Mikael Jansson), has finally arrived and based on these visuals, it appears the collection stays true to Wang's sportswear roots. Chic athletic wear including a long-sleeved sports jersey, exercise shorts, leggings and a puffy parka, along with a duffle bag, boxing gloves, sandals and a water bottle are some of the items we can look forward to when the collection hits select H&M stores worldwide on November 6th. I'm completely loving the modern and fashion forward approach that Wang has taken with these pieces and clearly, looking stylish at the gym has never been easier.

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.

New for fall/winter 2014, Reebok has teamed up with the Keith Haring foundation to produce a fun, graphic and funky collection of sneakers that will instantly amp up the street style factor of any outfit. Aptly named after the iconic mural that Haring painted in East Harlem in 1986, the "Crack is Wack" collection sees signature elements from the street art piece emblazoned on classic Reebok shoe styles including the Omni Lite, Instapump Fury, Running Dual, Aerobic Lite and the Court Victory. The Instapump Fury and Aerobic Lite variations will definitely be the first ones to sell out, so snatch them up while you can when they hit stores later this month.
