I can’t believe it’s been more than 2 months since I was in London. I’m really missing Monmouth coffee and the food from Borough Market. Stumbled upon this cool wall of graffiti while roaming around and decided it’s a cool backdrop for an outfit post.

I’m the worst when it comes to maintaining bags made of smooth leather. I managed to scratch this gorgeous bag from & Other Stories the day I brought it out.

What’s made of calfskin, packs your essentials and makes you look like Bear Grylls trekking the urban jungle?

alexander-wang-rtw-fw2014-survival-kit-bag

As much as the Alexander Wang Survival Kit Bag seems cumbersome (and probably heavy), it makes up for it with compartmentalized awesomeness. You can even carry around your water bottle in style; gone are the days where water bottles just seem so uncool and you have to make a trip to the convenience store for a bottle of Perrier or Evian to quench your thirst. Wear your Alexander Wang Survival Kit Bag proudly while an imaginary David Attenborough narrates your daily fashion adventures in this concrete jungle.

Just when you thought new photos of the Alexander Wang x H&M collection couldn’t come any sooner, they released a set of campaign photos featuring supermodels and sportsmen.

alexander-wang-hm-2alexander-wang-hm-1alexander-wang-hm-1-3

Supermodels Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana and Natasha Poly were featured alongside famous English soccer player Andy Carroll and kickboxer Rivaldino dos Santos in the advertising campaign and we can’t help but lust over the dress featured in the first photo. Looks like we’d have to set aside more money for shopping come November 6th.

How do you like the pieces from the Alexander Wang x H&M collection so far? Let us know your thoughts and watch out for news and the latest updates on the collection.
