Beat winter in a reflective silver down jacket with a hood and side ventilation zips, or a black hooded parka with WANG branded black-on-black webbing zipper pulls. There’s also a water-resistant black windbreaker with bonded seam construction, a removable interior vest and with a moulded hood that’s curved like a baseball cap. Additional styles include a black leather motorcycle jacket with a nylon puffer back, as well as a black hooded motorcycle jacket in scuba with embossed elbows patches.
Hoodies, sweatshirts and knits are urban wardrobe essentials, such as a hoodie with a webbing zipper pull in black or grey melange, and a sweatshirt in black and grey melange with embossed branding. Fine knits come with a graphic pattern in black, while the knit sleeves of a hoodie have a foam injected crocodile pattern. These everyday basics look great for the city streets with carrot-fit five-pocket pants with storm-sealed zipper detailing, or black scuba motorcycle pants.
Athletic Performance Wear
Sport influences run throughout the collection, especially a seamless quick-drying T-shirt perforated with a hidden message that becomes apparent when worn. An arrow graphic performance tank is branded with Wang in silver mesh, while performance shorts are branded with the Wang logo across the front. There is also a colour-block and appliqued leather baseball shirt and sports knit leggings branded at the waistband and knee.
Wang’s performance wardrobe for H&M is completed with black scuba gloves, jacquard beanies and graphic branded compression socks. Footwear includes a hybrid black scuba sneaker, with the logo stamped in reflective print across the zipper, and a hi-top zip-front leather sneaker. A padded nylon duffel comes with branded webbing straps, while backpacks are available in black leather or mesh with a hidden nylon ‘shower cap’ for rain protection.
