H&M caused quite a stir when they opened their first store in Manila a couple weeks ago. Here they are again back in the headlines as they boosts the local fashion scene with the much anticipated collaboration with one of my favourite designers, Alexander Wang. The wait is over: Alexander Wang x H&M is available worldwide including the newly opened Philippine flagship store at SM Megamall.
Alexander Wang is known for mixing sophisticated street wear style with runway fashion.
The Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration captures the speed of the city, mixing sports and performance for everyday life. Making the collection versatile and an amazing collaboration between function and fashion.
MY Alexander Wang x H&M WISH LIST
Last November 6, 2014, H&M opened their doors for the Alexander Wang x H&M shoppers at 8am. People were in line since the night before. Shoppers were also given color codes to determine their shopping groups and were only allowed 10 minutes in the store. I can imagine the pressure and pandemonium.
H&M Philippines Nikki Verzo & Dan Mejia maintains peace and order with their megaphone.
Who says only the early bird catches the worm? I arrived 10 hours late but was lucky enough to get a few of the pieces on my wish list. YAY! I couldn’t help but sport my new Alexander Wang x H&M to exercise class the next day. SOOOO HAPPY!!!
