I want the entire Alexander Wang Resort 2013 collection injected into my veins. That’s all.
Alexander Wang is a prominent campaigner of the elevated basic, and with that aesthetic boosting his designs, he took the notions of comfort and ease and played them out onto some of the best urban pieces I’ve seen come from him.
Take for instance the athletic leather coats and jackets with patch pockets and panels of a skin stamped to look like crocodile; clearly a tongue-in-cheek nod to luxury goods. Brilliant!
And then there’s the backless sweaters and cardigans held in place with lingerie straps which introduced a sense of airiness into the designs that conspired to be both graphic and fragile. Brilliant [and sexy] again!
As a stylist to musicians, this collection is a dream come true because it screams “stage”, but there are also pieces that I can see making an impact on a red carpet. The best part about Alexander Wang is that he is a master at strategically injecting high levels of detailing into his designs but he never looks like he’s trying too hard — which in term means my clients would never look like they’re trying too hard.
