Fly Or Fail: Rihanna Debuts First Alexander Wang for H&M Ensemble


By: VIBE Vixen / September 11, 2014

Rihanna x Wang and H&M

We can all agree, the Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration is one of the most highly anticipated collaborations the mass retailer has curated. However, Wang has been very skimp on extending the olive branch for the fashion obsessed when it comes to previews of the collection. Thus far, we’ve only seen a flimsy key chain and a yoga mat—in which we had to ask—really, that’s it? Where’s the fashion? Bring on the fashion.

Well apparently the collaborators heard many of us loud and clear as Bajan pop star Rihanna hit the streets of NYC this week debuting the first ensemble from the collaboration. And surprisingly, we’re a bit underwhelmed. Of all the ideas that could have been executed a crop top and leggings was the choice?

Sure, Wang is known for his minimalistic and athletic aesthetic (which we love) but we’re not sold on this two-piece set. We were hoping for more of a dope bat wing sleeved cape made out of crepe fabric. Can a girl dream?

But of course, Rihanna looks flawless in anything she puts on, but the regular woman who isn’t going to the gym in this outfit is asking for fashion criticism.

But don’t let our steep expectations for the Wang x H&M collaboration sway your fashion thoughts. Tell us if Rihanna’s unofficial Alexander Wang debut was a fly or fail.
