PERFECT PUNCH: ALEXANDER WANG FOR H&M.
Does Lulu Lemon have some competition in the fashionable athletic wear arena? Is Soul Cycle on it's way out and kick boxing is suddenly in again? Is anyone going to get dressed any more? These are all great questions after seeing the highly anticipated Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration.
We sorta knew what to expect after seeing Rihanna in head to toe Alexander Wang x H&M at New York Fashion week a few weeks ago. When I look at the collection it seems like Wang was echoing Jeremy Scott's infatuation with putting the Moschino label on everything. Frankly, some of the pieces leave me a little puzzled. Do you think they say AW (awwwwww) or WA (wahhhh). Are people in awe or tears? I'm slightly joking. I definitely want to see the items in person before jumping on the bandwagon and taking up ultimate fighting. Either way, I am proud of our SF guy, Alexander Wang!!!
We've seen H&M do collaborations with the best of them. I found the full list on their site:

So now the question is, who are we going to see in 2015 for an H&M collab?!?
