Better late than never they say, and here I am finally sporting my Alex Wang x H&M boxy cropped sweater.










As a true and devoted Alexander Wang fan, I got way too excited when H&M announced that they would collaborate with him for their annual designer capsule collection. And as many of us out there, I too got a bit disappointed when the collection was revealed back in October; where were all the French-glamourness-meets-90s-grunge aesthetics that he has become so well known for, or the sexy mesh/ cutouts model-off-duty that we fell in love with back in '07?

Still, not all was lost; the collection may have been inspired by nighttime-sportswear, but featured some pieces that I would love to get my hands on. This sweater was one of my favorites with its boxy-shaped feel and Wang logo screaming all over it, and I know I'll get good use out of it. Some of the bodycon dresses were also too hot to say no to, especially if paired with lace up booties to dress up, or chunky combat boots to dress down. 

In case you missed any pieces of the collection, I'd recommend checking Ebay (where unfortunately all pieces sell with doubled prices), or Vestiaire Collective, which also sells pre-owned stuff in excellent condition and the prices do not exceed the normal (I had created a post on Vestiaire Collective when I first discovered it - and I got the chance to get my first Balenciaga from them!).
