Did you ever think that you would see Alexander Wang and football in the same sentence? If you just answered no, you should probably start to question your own sanity. Seeing as nobody can do American sportswear quite like Alexander Wang. From fringed sweat shirts to mesh and spandex paired with sky-high booties, only in his mid-20's Wang has upped the game in New York fashion week. Walking the fine line between taste and tasteless. Often leaving you amazed with perfect combos that you never in a million years would have thought perfectly coordinated. Like barely there shorts, thigh-high socks, and open-toe booties.
Well, OK. It may not seem like a practical idea if your not built like Anna Selezneva, but if you and I share the same brain, you would just be glad that your able to wear thigh-high socks and open-toe booties again, because you were to too naive to jump aboard the trend back when Miuccia Prada did it in her Fall 2007 collection for Prada.
Taking it back to the point in time when cheerleading uniforms hit just at the knee, for Spring 2015 Alexander Wang wants you to get your head in the game. Opening the show with a sea of neutrals and more inspired looks, it was clear from the start where the designer's inspiration came from. Later taking the show above and beyond with the addition of those black booties that I must own ASAP, things got exciting with the transparent black looks towards the end. Mixing glamour and sports all at once. Showing that you still can have power whilst half-naked.
Possibly drawing inspiration from the fact that the current wave in shoulder trends just so happens to resemble that of quarterback's shoulders, it's moments like this that sometimes sparks interest in sports (not really).
