Thoughts On The Weeknd’s Collab With Alexander Wang

As Instagram becomes the hub for all things pretease in the fashion world, The Weeknd and Alexander Wang used it this week to simultaneously tease their collection together, which drops tomorrow.

The posts showed cargo pants with pocket-detailing, vests and arguably the hero of the collection: a slick pair of XO-stamped boxing-inspired “Eden” hi-tops.

Some of the other pieces were less inspiring, with t-shirts and bandanas featuring The Weeknd’s album artwork resembles merchandise more than a winter capsule collection.

News of the collection has had mixed reviews, with some excited for the launch while others are declaring that Alexander Wang “will work with anyone” and that the collection is uninspiring and just another way to make money.

For my part, I’m not super excited for the launch and I won’t be refreshing Wang’s website to get my hands on anything, but if I had to pick a favourite,  the Eden hi-tops are the standout piece in the collection for me.

What are your thoughts?
