Alexander Wang Spring 2015

Monday, September 14, 2015


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).

When it comes to AWang you must expect the unexpected, which was clearly the case for his s/s2015 collection. Where do I even begin!?

The deflated football clutch in Hanne's hand was quite cheeky and fun, playing up the obvious theme (if you don't get it by now, just exit now). Those rounded sweatshirt-like sleeves on Isabeli and Natasha came across as burly and macho - but build in a corset and pair it with little boy briefs, ribbed socks and sexy leopard wedges: you've got yourself one bad b*tch.

What I'm about to say is quite a statement, but Wang's booties will be the hottest selling shoes of the s/s2015 worldwide. Why? It combines every aspect of what today's girl wants in chic footwear: black leather, chunked heel, open-toe, savage zips, + lace-ups, etc. Givenchy on crack, and we all want a taste.

THE collection to watch for once it hits the stores. His vision and talent is undeniable and put out investment pieces, like he said he would.

InsideMode, I think Wang is winning the Sheer-count! [K]

@kingchic I couldn't have put it better. Love the Givenchy on crack comparison. These booties belong with me. Also brings me back to 2006 Balenciaga.

The sheer count and boy-s I con count is actually a count fr7om all the show covered so far. I think there's gonna me a lot more in the coming weeks.
