New York-based Alexander Wang is the cool girl’s label of choice.
An unapologetic, rebellious, achingly cool attitude reigned supreme at Alexander Wang’s FW16 runway show. The collection features bold motifs and lettering printed on sportswear-inspired pieces for a look that is made for downtown city streets. ‘Girls’ lettering at the thighs of the black stockings is sure to inject a dose of sensual, nonchalant attitude into any skirt you team them with. If you just choose one item, make it a pair of the heavily distressed denim shorts or jeans – they keep the tough-luxe vibe strong and are easy to mix into your wardrobe for enduring urban appeal.
Alexander Wang is one of America’s most influential designers, famed for his sporty, urban aesthetic. During his second year studying at Parsons in New York, a young Wang decided to launch his own label which began with a knitwear collection. In 2007 he showed his first RTW collection during New York Fashion Week and received phenomenal industry acclaim. He then went on to win the ‘CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund’ award in 2008 and Swarovski’s ‘Womenswear Designer of the Year’ title in both 2009 and 2010.
