First announced last year, we can now take an exclusive look at Abel Tesfaye’s (you might know him better as The Weeknd) “Spring Icons” range with fast fashion retailer H&M.
The R&B superstar has curated a complete wardrobe of essential pieces, with a strong streetwear vibe running throughout. “I had a great time selecting my Spring Icons at H&M. 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,” said Abel.
Those words were echoed by H&M Head of Design for menswear, Andreas Lowenstam, who said: “Abel’s taste and style perfectly fits the menswear mood of the season at H&M. He has such a great eye for the little details that matter, and for mixing together updated men’s classics for the perfect tailored streetwear look.”
The Weeknd’s XO insignia is a reoccurring motif and can be seen adorning hoodies, bomber jackets and sweaters. Standout pieces include the badass motorbike jacket, Asia-inspired shirts, and a zip-up work shirt. Faux suede, pleather and cotton are but a few of the materials utilized.
Peep every item in the gallery above, and watch out for all items hitting H&M stores on March 2.
