Alexander Wang SS 2015
It really is a match made in heaven, Wang working at Balenciaga. I can see how he is influenced by the house for his own label. I adore the idea of taking the aesthetic and materials of athletic and sports garments and putting them on “pretty dresses”. Designs on top of the garments look like deconstructed shoes made into very varied textures, almost like armor. I really love the mesh on the pleated skirts and the tight-fit colour dresses. Wang presented stunning suits with clean cuts and a prevalent sophisticated feel. The bags are always marvelous in his collections, and one beautiful and clever idea in particular was putting sneaker soles at the bottom of the bags. Another thing that always keeps me excited for Alexander Wang’s collections is the never-disappointing soundtrack.
