New York-based Alexander Wang is the cool girl’s label of choice.
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.
For his SS16 collection, Alexander Wang celebrated the label’s 10th anniversary by throwing himself a party – sparkling confetti included. However, the real magic was shown in the designs. Staying true to the label’s iconic It girl aesthetic, the looks were city-ready and achingly cool. From the undone, frayed hems to the graphic mesh, Wang proves again that there is no better way to do downtown cool than with a touch of distressing and a dose of nonchalant attitude. Regardless of whether it’s jersey or denim, the maxi skirt is our must-have silhouette from the urban collection.
