Yes I jumped onto the Alexander Wang x H&M bandwagon, but seriously though, how could I not? A bandeau bra that Herve Leger would be proud of and a series of other banded garments, I'm in love. I didn't quite pick up as many pieces as I had hoped, and quite a few of the pieces that I purchased actually didn't quite fit me the way that I wanted them to. But nonetheless I waited outside overnight for a couple of hours to get my hands on a few coveted pieces and I'm proud to say that I'm ecstatic.
What's even better is when you already own something similar to the pieces released in the collection (hello leather joggers) and can easily recreate some of the looks for less. And I'm talking about seriously less here. These joggers costed me a fraction (one tenth) of what the actual full-on leather pants designed by Alexander Wang were going for.
The day after the release, I went back into the store to see what pieces were left lying around, and only the full-on leather designs were still on the racks. Okay, your typical H&M shopper isn't going to be spending $400 on a single jacket or pair of pants, so that's understandable. But from other outfits that I've seen so far, bloggers are loving the style and I'm glad to have copped myself a look-a-like pair awhile back in order to pair it together with this beautiful bandeau.
