Hey there. Recently I have been cleaning up my closet and spotted this bright coloured dress with an asian vibe, from the VERSACE for H&M collection 2012. May I just say that their collection was to DIE for. The dress has shiny red mousse shoulder pads (an 80's comeback) and geometrical cut outs on the neck. I love the colour palette on this dress, the beautiful floral details and vibrant origamis designs on the fabric are so sweet. The arms come in two different colours, i love that, as its Quirky....reminds me of something that the Spicegirl's would have worn. If you guys read my last blog (Alexander Wang collab with H&M) I threw on a super thick and textured Alexander Wang jumper over this dress. Its nice falling in love again with a piece i've owned for ages. MY ADVICE: skim through your wardrobe once in a while, mix-match and re-vive xxx bye bye
Hi everybody. Yesss the moment is finally here... The Alexander Wang's electric capsule collection for H&M. I have been waiting for the collection since the minute I heard about the collab last year. I follow Alexander Wang on Instagram and 'of course' joined the facebook event... yep I've been really excited. I remember one of the last collabs with H&M which was with the house of Versace and the collection was absolutely devine. I'm not a huge H&M fan but especially love their collaborations with haute couture designers. An affordable way to build a luxurious wardrobe at a fraction of the costs. After queuing for over an hour at H&M Nice, my nervousness and excitement paid off. The minute I laid my eyes on the collection, I knew I would love it all. I noticed Alexander Wang used a lot of neoprene, mesh and perforated leather in his collection. As I am a huge fan of black and white, the collection was so appealing to me. The collection also tied in a sports theme and underground edge. I purchased two square crop tops in white and a black with the WANG logo embossed. In the photos I paired the crop top with an ultra cool pair of Alexander Wang's high waisted black leather jogging pants. What I love about the pants is its loose fit. I styled my look with a chunky crystal ear cuff and my black platform heels. I generally kept the look sleek and crisp. My next piece was an ultra thick rigid, neoprene textured jumper, chunky, heavy but edgy. In my shoot I teamed it with a bright coloured Versace/H&M dress and a pair of black platform birkenstock's and an on-trend holographic clutch. My final piece that I loved and will be using quite a bit, is the Alexander Wang sports shorts. Here he mixed a scuba stretch fabric and mesh. Modern, textured and sporty!!!
After my quick, maniac shop....I then found out that a few pieces of the collection was also available online, and was fortunate enough to order a few more pieces and shall blog about them when I receive them. The Alexander Wang H&M collection personally appealed to me, mainly because of its modern edge and sporty simplicity and of course the affordability. xxx Tara
