Having spent the better part of a day trying to decipher three Alexander Wang for H&M teaser shots, we've finally come up with a theory regarding this cryptic Instagram. It could very well be a zoomed-in shot of an Alexander Wang logo'd-out yoga mat similar to the one Wang designed for his own line. That mat, made of croc-embossed rubber and featuring a black lambskin leather strap, retailed for $175—quite an investment for something you'll be sweating all over.
This is exciting because a) cool yoga mat, guys! and b) if our theory is correct, it means that Wang's collab will extend past clothes, shoes and jewelry and into gym equipment. The first tease, of a keychain with mini boxing gloves, would seem to back this up.
