Alexander Wang X H&M

The MANnequin Party by Gino R Campodonico - Wang X HM 1

The MANnequin Party looks forward to H&M‘s legendary designer collaboration every year. It’s become tradition ever since we were in New York for the Roberto Cavalli capsule collection in 2007 – and we haven’t stopped since. This year, the Swedish mega retail store teamed up with none other than NYC’s king of Downtown cool, Alexander Wang. This partnership marked the first time that an American designer teams up with H&M on the much-anticipated designer collaboration.

Ever since the collab announcement was made at Coachella festival in April, we’ve been dying to get our hands on the goods. Last week, on November 6, the moment finally arrived and we were prepared for an all-out fashion knockout! We arrived at H&M Lincoln Rd at 6:30 a.m. (God, that was an early wake up call), and were happy to be number 40-something in line…the first fashion fiend in line arrived at 9:30 pm the night before – Hi, CRAZY! Close to 7:30 a.m. we got our shopping wristband, at 8 a.m. the store opened, and by 8:35 a.m. we were back in our car diving into our oversized shopping bags and having a full blown fashiongasm. I must say that out of all the H&M designer collabs, this has for sure been the easiest. That doesn’t mean that I may or may not have knocked a bitch out to score a pair of those hot sunglasses!

Sunglasses with UV-protected lenses. Supplied with two wide sports straps.

The three main reasons I loved the Wang X H&M collab: 1. I’m in a rare fitness craze lately and thought the sporty-minded fantasy collection could keep my ass in the gym (or at least look cute pretending). 2. MEGGINGS – the tights suck in and lift everything you want, and feel so awesome! 3. Funky streetwear.

Let’s play dress up!

Obvi, the Alexander Wang X H&M collection is sold-out online so you’re SOL going that route, but check out the Lincoln Rd. store in South Beach for leftover goods such as lots of coats (we’re in Miami, duh) and a few pairs of shoes.
