The images, released today, feature super-sporty items on Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann, and two actual athletes (because sports, remember?). While English football player Andy Carroll and professional kickboxer Rivaldino dos Santos look great and intimidating in their Wang pieces, don’t be fooled: The Wang-H&M collaboration definitely isn’t appropriate for SoulCycle.
