By now you’ve heard that Alexander Wang is collaborating with H&M! This is my dream collaboration – my favorite ‘edgy,’ ‘downtown’ designer (especially when it comes to his accessories) and my favorite fast-fashion store! What could be better?
Since there are no images of the collection yet (it debuts November 6), everyone’s been speculating about what it will look like and what will be included. Since Alexander Wang has a thriving collection of women’s fashion, handbags and shoes, those are likely going to be the focal points of his H&M collection. Since his bags range from $500 and up, not everyone can pick up a Rocco Duffel, so this collaboration will give everyone a chance to get their hands on an Alexander Wang original!
I thinking about this collection, I’ve picked the five bags that Alexander Wang should definitely include in his H&M collection. Take a look:
Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel
I mean, the Rocco Duffel should obviously be included since this is arguably his most popular bag! This rounded leather bag is known for its circular shape and the layer of bullet-style studs on the bottom. In real life, it’s a really heavy bag, so hopefully if he duplicates it for H&M, he’ll use more lightweight studding and add some additional details throughout.
Alexander Wang Diego Bucket Bag
The Diego Bucket Bag is a classic boho-chic fave. It’s one of those bags you carry when you want to achieve that carefree, “Oh, I’m just heading to a music festival this weekend” look. It’s arguably his second most popular bag so it should also be included in the H&M collection.
Alexander Wang Pelican Sling Bag
The Pelican Sling Bag is a sleek, less trendy option than the previously mentioned bags, but also a cult fave. The Pelican features an exterior layer that can be ‘swapped’ so you can wear it with a croc-stamped, lizard-stamped or smooth leather finish. This would be a good versatile piece for the H&M collection.
Alexander Wang Emile Tote
The Emile Tote is the perfect, chic work tote. With its structured shape and those patented metal corners, it’s a sleek, easy-to-replicate option for his H&M line.
Alexander Wang Devere rabbit-trimmed metallic leather shoulder bag
The Devere rabbit-trimmed metallic leather shoulder bag is a great option for an edgy evening bag and it looks like something you’d be able to find at H&M (in a faux patent leather, of course). Add some faux fur, detachable accessories and it’s a perfect bag for Fall!
Which Alexander Wang bags (and shoes and clothes) are you looking forward to seeing duplicated as part of his H&M collection?
