Alexander Wang For H&M

In a collaboration that’s meant to hit stores on the 6th of November, Alexander Wang and H&M gave us a preview of what is yet to come. In an interview with Style.com Wang explained the idea and motive behind the collection “H&M has done a great job in the past with archive-based collaborations, But I wanted to create a collection where most of the pieces have been designed from scratch. There are only a couple of items that are updates from past designs. Rather than creating affordable versions of expensive items, I wanted to design true performance pieces that are within the natural price points of sportswear of H&M, so we were able to create the best version of these pieces, through our vocabulary.”

Statement Piece

Is it possible to just talk about how obsessed I am with this shoulder piece by H&M? This shoulder piece is part of the new sustainable collection which will be in stores starting April 10th. This collection will be made out of organic fibers and from sustainable sources. This is a statement piece and I would love to see it worn by people its a great addition to a simple dress or even a shirt. It can make your whole outfit and I love how easily attainable it is as well!

Miami

Two weekends ago I went with a group of friends to Miami in order to celebrate a birthday and graduation. During the visit I got to see an old friend of mine from Jordan that attended university there. It was great to catch up! One of the days we went to a restaurant called The Rusty Pelican and we took a picture that I really like. That day I was wearing a t-shirt in blue from Zara, wearing printed shorts from H&M, red penny loafers from Barney’s, and Persol sunglasses.

My Video

As a studio art minor one of the classes that I chose to take was a multimedia arts class. As the semester comes to an end our projects are due soon. So yesterday I spent my entire day at the film lab at American University trying to create this video. I decided to collect shots and images from different designer advertisements, movies, and music videos to create the video. This video has parts from 2 Dior advertisements, an Elie Saab advertisement, a part from The Great Gatsby trailer, Wicked Games by The Weeknd, Pri-Madonna Girl by Marina and The Diamonds, and an advertisement for H&M. Your feedback is appreciated, so if there is anything wrong I could fix it before its due. I hope you like it!
