Alexander Wang - who recently unveiled his sportswear style collection for H&M - revealed he is keen to continue working on active wear and hopes to produce a more permanent line in the future.
Alexander Wang wants to design more sportswear.
The 30-year-old fashion designer - who recently unveiled his new active wear-inspired collection for high street label H&M - has revealed he is keen to continue his foray into sportswear and wants to make the styles a more permanent feature in his collections.
He told Vogue.co.uk: ''Approaching active wear was exciting for me as I've always wanted to do it, but having that access to the resources - the factories and the garment mills - was a completely different process to what I usually do.
''It's a whole new skill set. You have to do your due diligence and testing, but it is something that I have so much passion and love for, that I'd love to have a future opportunity to do something like this that is more permanent.''
The Balenciaga creative director added that he enjoyed designing a collection that was accessible to such a wide audience.
He said: ''It's also a collection that touches many different tiers for many different audiences. It doesn't matter if you're a luxury customer or an H&M customer - if you need gym clothes, if you work out, if you're active, there's a piece for everyone.''
Meanwhile, the California-born designer recently admitted he felt ''honoured'' to have designed a range for the high street retailer as he has always been a huge fan of the store.
He said: ''I have always shopped there and it was such an honour to be asked to collaborate.
''I wanted to design new pieces of performance and sportswear, making good-quality pieces with their own design integrity.''
