Pink is in. According to the resort collection of Alexander Wang. But not only candied bubblegum pink, but also a deep forest green. In the words of the designer himself, he worked with colours of the “super-saccharine, super-sweet” sought. Having said that, who can ignore the mirage of dark black leathers, alongside camel, and white.
Many of the looks featured a sort of hybrid peplum meets box-pleat, all technically (in a construction sense) extraordinary. The way Alexander took on the leathers, and worked in morphing their shapes to the female body worked a treat, making them the defiant standouts. There were dolman sleeves, leather vests, two-piece skirts and a fair share of tennis (mini) skirts throughout the collection.
Tailored pants were also treated with the same pleating as the skirts and blouses, allowing for a paper-bag pant like appeal… yet a sharper version per se. Strong, precisely cut leathers were also paired with metallic knits, and because only Wang has the power to override decades of ‘fashion-dont’s’; patent white loafers were worn with black pants (*gasp*).
