The novelty of designer collaborations seems a bit 2010 but that doesn't mean that there aren't any buzz worthy partnerships. Below are three designer mashups to help spice up the pre-coming holiday season.
We have no doubt that this week's launch of Alexander Wang's collection at H&M is going draw huge crowds. The sportif line is novel in this day of high-meets-low fashion, as it's true sportswear and not just the run of the mill designer-look-for-less. The collab officially launches November 6. A.Wang will be available online but we expect it to sell out f-a-s-t. You can head over to Racked to read all of the wheres and whens.
Mary Katrantzou/Adidas Originals
Our favorite pint designers, Mary Katrantzou, is creating a small collection for Adidas. Kaleidoscopic prints will adorn sneakers and a variety of eye-popping neoprene tops and dresses. Clothing prices will range between $80 and $450 and sneakers will cost between $170 to $250. You can head this way to see the entire lookbook.
Prabal Gurung is teaming with the beauty giant, MAC, with a 14-piece collection that ranges from lipglass to lipgloss. The packaging has a luxe vintage feel. Eyeliners will be priced at $20, lipsticks $30, eyeshadow duos $40 and a buffer brush is $70. It seems as if MAC is expecting this fashion-cosmetic pairing to provide a boost to the luxe holiday gift offering. It may not be Louboutin polish but it looks promising.
