SINGER22 NEWS – STYLE Update – Alexander Wang x H&M

Hello all!

My name is Jackie and I’m the new staff writer at SINGER22. I’m stoked to start sharing my thoughts and interacting with you guys as I myself am an active and avid reader with a high regard for pop culture and its intrinsic link to fashion. I’m not one for lengthy introductions so let’s get cracking, shall we?

Exciting news for H&M shoppers, myself included:

Alexander Wang is joining the long list of established designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Versace, and Maison Martin Margiela who’ve collaborated with the Swedish merchandiser on collections. Wang’s collection will target both men & women and will be available starting November 6th, 2014; a rather convenient release date as it stands 2 weeks before my birthday. I guess I know what I’m wearing before I know where I’ll be celebrating. Sweet.

!!EXCITING COLLABORATION!!

!!EXCITING COLLABORATION!!

For those of you less familiar with Alexander Wang’s aesthetic, the American designer is known for his urban edge on a minimalistic foundation. He tends to work within a predominantly black, grey, and white color palette but sometimes surprises with shots of primary, pastel, or darker tinted hues. This collection certainly has everyone, celebrities and non-celebrities alike, salivating for a chance to refresh our fall wardrobes, and yet I was just getting excited for the long overdue warm weather here in NY…

In the meantime stock up on comparably modern looks from SINGER22 like this carved shoulder racerback tank and this sleek leather skort.
