Outfit // Wang

AlexanderWangxHM2

As you might have seen on my Instagram, I attended the Alexander Wang x H&M presale event in Antwerp yesterday. Not really knowing what to expect, I thought I would be able to take a look at the collection at ease, casually trying on my favorite pieces ... Boy, was I wrong! I suddenly found myself in line together with hundreds of other people: press, bloggers, celebrities, boys and girls who won various contests to win a ticket to the event ... It was MADNESS. Plus, I was wearing a faux fur leopard printed coat, skinny leather trousers and my Isabel Marant sneakers (trip alert!) -- not the best outfit for a night of pushing, shoving, running ...

Anyway, it was madness, but it was fun though! My partner in crime Michel was right by my side, I spotted some of my blogger besties here and there, Ouni killed it behind the DJ booth with an amazing RnB / rap / hip hop set and the H&M staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Even though I wasn't convinced of the collection at first, it quickly changed when I tried on the pieces I managed to get my hands on. I first tried on the baggy leather pants, but they weren't for me; which is probably for the best, since they came with a € 250 price tag. Next up were the grey leggings and sports bra Rihanna was spotted wearing way before the collection hit the stores and even though I never thought I would: I loved them! I can even go to the gym in style now. Michel was Whatsapping pictures to my mom and she texted that they were cool and I should get them, but that I would have to go to the gym at least 3 times a week from now on. Sounds fair enough. There's also a super tight dress in the same print as the leggings and the sports bra, which I also took home with me.

And last but not least, Michel managed to get me the sweater I'm wearing in this outfit post: aren't the cut out / transparent details to die for? I'm so happy that I got it -- thanks, M.! I almost froze to death while taking these pictures yesterday, but I couldn't wait to show you how it looked.

What do you think?
Did you manage to get what you wanted from the collection?

  8. Prachtige trui, vooral omdat je tattoo ook te zien is! Klinkt als een chaotische avond maar denk wel dat het super vet is zoiets mee te maken! X

  20. Oeh lala, hij is supermooi! Ik was in Valencia de H&M binnengeweest, en er hing nog héél veel, maar alleen maar lelijke dingen. Oeps!

  22. I wasn't sure about this top so I didn't buy! I got instead other two pieces from the Alexander Wang x HM collection: the Sports Bra and the Beanie with logo!
