Alexander Wang is utilizing his celebrity friends for more than just ad campaigns. The former Balenciaga designer just took to Instagram to announce that he is collaborating with The Weeknd's XO clothing brand. The Instagram post was sparse with the details, merely captioning a video that brought together the pair's respective logos with the words "Stay tuned."
Thankfully, this isn't the only news that The Weeknd is taking his fashion ambitions seriously. The "Can't Feel My Face" singer has also teamed up with fashion's vaporizer brand of choice, Pax. The Weeknd-designed Pax vaporizer features the singer's XO logo engraved on the device's sleek black exterior. Best of all, the Pax will play The Weeknd's hit song "Can't Feel My Face" in what has to be the most fitting feature a vaporizer can have. The vaporizers will be available for $325 on The Weeknd's upcoming "The Madness" tour as well as online at Pax's website.
Below watch the video announcing The Weeknd x Alexander Wang and see an image of The Weeknd's limited-edition Pax vaporizer.
Update: Alexander Wang's capsule collection with The Weeknd will involve tees, hoodies, bandanas, and high-top sneakers plastered with "XO" graphics, Vogue reports. Those "WANGXO" items will land in select Alexander Wang stores and online this month, and The Weeknd will also wear Wang-designed clothing on his tour.
Update: As part of the collaboration, The Weeknd and Alexander Wang are also releasing a pair of WANGXO footwear. The Weeknd posted images, which you can see below, of the high-top black and white footwear on his Twitter.
