Alexander Wang is a lover of the nineties, and has once again re-lived his glory days within the Spring 2014 collection for his namesake label. Although there were some very distinct more polished Balenciaga like influences.
The minimalist combo of black-and-white, gritty street edge and utter coolness of the era was all championed. Not to mention that the Wang girls walked to a fitting soundtrach of Aaliyah and Pharoahe Monch’s “Simon Says (Get the Fuck Up).”
As a confessed ode to the “blatant Advertising” (Alexander Wang) of the nineties, the designer made sure to laser-cut his own name into some of the collection’s leathers, alongside other pieces. The label’s ALEXANDER WANG logo formed a sort of reoccurring print for the collection, even morphed into houndstooth-esque prints. Let’s talk fabric development, because the mini dresses constructed out of the Alexander Wang lettering was genius.
Oh the wit.
And then we have the more obvious logo of the “Parental Advisory” sheer sweatshirt, which we can all expect to see hitting the viral world hard (with copies soon to be donned by every Cara Delevigne woreshipping teen near you).
Although, it was the scarcely buttoned button-down shirts which really drew our attention. Both in the crisp white and striped blue, they were definite highlights for us. There was also contrast stitching on denim-like jackets, pleated skirts, cropped button-downs leather bermuda’s and lots of leg on show.
Take a look for yourself.
