Alexander Wang - AW 11/12
Alexander Wang's newest collection is easily one of my favorite of the season thus far. His goal was to poke fun of the luxury lifestyle and in his efforts this collection fed into Wang's downtown chic aesthetic; turning out the wardrobe of an urban warrior. He took bomber jackets, parkas, and tuxedo jackets and merged them to create luxurious hybrids. Experimenting with needle punching, Wang was able to further dive into his hybridization. Chunky knitwear pieces would gently transform into leather parkas and silky dresses. Wang is evolving fashion. There is no time period which overpowers his collection, but instead he is constantly looking for something new to create. From his coats sporting exaggerated fur collars to the silk tendrils of skirts, Alexander Wang has created the most luxurious form of anti-luxury.
