There was a lot going on in Alexander Wang‘s most recent Fall 2014 collection for Balenciaga, yet we have condensed it out to a couple of looks which left us drooling.
As purists at heart, here is our quite biased edit of the collection which is naturally devoid of any colour (yes, there is no sign of those canary yellow toggle coats here…).
The dominatrix style knee-high leather boots are key standouts in our edit, followed by the gorgeous grey cocoon shaped ribbed knits. Knitwear was a key element with some being embellished with shard like spikes, placed in a gradual effect as to form a dense covering near the collar.
Wang also utilised a large amount of felted black wool in his collection, working it into asymmetric hems and coats of all sorts. The looks were piled to perfection, with slim ever so leg elongating black pants being topped with layers upon layers.
With three seasons up his sleeve at the house, and much to show for it Wang has done us proud and will hopefully continue to do so.
with love, Natalie.
