Alexander Wang ready to wear S/S 2013

Alexander Wang’s new ready to wear S/S 2013 collection can only be summed up as a structured monochromatic dream.

The designer stayed to a strict colour palette of black, white and occasionally a creamy tan at New York Fashion Week. The silhouettes seen parading down the runway to tunes like Put Cha Back In It by DJ Slink, were structured and architectural, framing the female form in armoured Wang-ness.

Highlights of the show were the leather A-cut tops and mid thigh shorts that were cut into rows and attached with small fragments of the same material. This is a new look that is sure to explode within high street fashion chains.

Gladiator heels and flats featuring strips of black or white textile in luxe patent also created a neo-futuristic feel. 

Soft billowy materials in crisp white made for a perfect base that allowed for ease of movement, essential for an everyday ensemble.

Wang has done it again.

Be one of the first to watch this contemporary and innovative show.
