Alexander Wang x H&M acrobatic catwalk debut

Last night in NY, Alexander Wang x H&M transformed the Armory at Hudson in Manhattan’s West Harlem for a theatrical runway show followed by an exclusive pop-up shop.

With the focus on athletic performance-wear, the  track and field racetrack was turned into a parkour performance stage and runway. Acrobatic dancers zip-lined down from the ceiling, while acrobats  bounced from wall to wall using gravity-defying trampolines.

The models – who included the likes of  Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss and Tyson Beckford – stomped down a racetrack to music by Missy Elliot who closed  the night with a surprise performance.
