Alexander Wang has gone back to his roots with this collection; he mixes knits with leather, sheer with velvet, satin with fur. Unlike his past few collections which really threw all the traditional black-on-black Wang fans for a loop, this season showed us he is more than capable of making clothing not only for more accessible buyers but also a more luxurious audience. There is a very comfy and simple aesthetic going on here. Wang uses jersey and silk to create a sort of sweatshirt dress-- something he has certainly done before, but never at this caliber. The way each fabric flows into the next is stunning, and the accessories are to die for. Everything is so non-sensical yet makes so much sense in its presentation... fur clad sunglasses? Check. Alexander Wang leaves us with a sense of playful chic that would make most designers this fashion week shake in their boots... or heels.
