H&M And The Weeknd Announce The Fall 2017 Collection of Selected
It is always a great day for everyone when some of the world’s finest and most popular celebrity singers or hip hop artists announce their collab with other world famous and popular high fashion clothing brands. I mean it is a celebration for the whole world, especially when the celebrity singer happens to be a youth icon.
Today we are talking about one such collab which indeed created waves not only in the fashion industry, but also in the music industry when their fruit was launched for the very first time last a few months back.
I am talking about none other than The Weeknd and his collab with retail giant H and M. The collab was announced and launched in March this year and the world indeed saw some great pieces to experiment with through “Selected” – their collab name. This season, they are up to something super exciting and more relateable for street fashion followers in general.
Before we get into the details about the collection, here’s a little about the “Starboy” singer;
The Weeknd is a Canadian singer, song writer and record producer who’s actual name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye. He was born in the year 1990 and since 2010 he has been in the music industry, initially releasing songs through YouTube. Later in 2013, he released his debut studio album titled “Kiss For” and since then, there has been pretty much no looking back for him. Now Abel or The Weeknd is one of the most iconic celebrities with a huge youth fan following. And that is precisely why his latest collection of “Selected” is so intensely anticipated.
Now coming to his latest collection, this time around Abel decided to include 18 seasonal essentials as part of Selected and he made the announcement through his Instagram account where he posted a picture of himself wearing a sleek varsity jacket in a purple and black color combination with printed shadows of palm treed and power lines grazing the background.
About his collection, The Weeknd said, “I love the mix of urban pieces like bombers and hoodies with tailored shirts and blazers. Every piece is both effortless and fresh, which is just how menswear should be.”
He also said that all the pieces in his collection were intended to strike a balance between sharp and casual “with all the details that count”.
Well, he sure sounds like he knows how it is done, doesn’t he?
That is just what we need in fashion – celebrities with a great fashion sense as well as the creativity to express it in a unique way and share it with the world without any inhibitions.
The singer also has given in a whole 100% of his involvement in the latest collection apparently because he has decided to personally take care of the publicity and exposure of his new line’s pieces to his fab base. He has also modelled for some of his pieces himself for a new editorial shoot.
Talk about dedication!
Well, now all we have to do is wait for the big launch across online stores as well as select retail brick and mortar stores on September 28th.
Until then, here are a few highlights from the collection to keep you busy:
