Alexander Wang is a class of his own.
Let’s backtrack from Paris Fashion Week to Brooklyn for Alexander Wang’s show, where he combated weather change with fashion.
Coats and pockets. Shift dresses and pockets. Attempting to free the hands for more serious work out there in the woods. Every pocket seems to be designed with a particular item in mind: the keys, the wallets, the cigarette lighter, the pens and the cellphone. All neatly arranged the way Wang thinks it should be.
And perhaps with that, we can worry less about our handbags.
Then he started on how we could all make the best out of a gloomy weathered day. With the right combination of leather, plastic, fleece, wool and those technologically driven materials, we maybe able to protect ourselves from the stormy days ahead.
It is far from empty talk, because as I’m writing this piece, it is raining out there and it makes me think how should I view these fashionable items in my daily life. The weather has been in a hostile mood lately and it will definitely become more extreme in the future. Alexander Wang is indeed very relevant.
The footwear is my favourite. I think the knee-high boots and heels make perfect sense, and the front shield works perfectly on both functionality wise and from aesthetic point of view.
Alexander Wang has given time and effort to our surrounding, maturing into blending his work into the world that is relevant to his patrons, while exploring the boundaries of creativity. He does not see the world as a matter of fact.
I think the finale pieces look amazing too.
