During New York Fashion Week, a new genre of vibe emerged from Alexander Wang. Stompy black platform boots, heart-pounding electro music and tousled looks: yes, Wang Fall/Winter’s designs celebrated the rebirth of a women’s army, ready to be brave and confront the eclectic night out of a big city.
In a semi-aggressive walk across downtown’s Pier 36, Wang’s models sported silver studs from head to toe, their hair falling across their eyes. Determined and everything but afraid. With a little help from Wang’s signature sportswear backpacks and glittering bomber black jacket, the Fall/Winter collection recalled the overall dark sexiness of the American brand.
Long black coats turning into robes, short mannish trousers and leather tops: an edgy collection, Alexander Wang’s Fall/Winter 2015 offering still had a vivid and fierce hint of red plaids, grey shades and soft beige fabrics. In a genuine attempt to salute a post-punk era, the fashion show fulfilled Wang’s commitments.
