SNEAK PEEK: Alexander Wang

Eagerly anticipated collection of Alexander Wang has been semi-revealed during the recent New York Fashion Week! Alexander Wang seemed to be out to prove that he has grown-up and can be the man to outfit women from desk to dawn, not just nightcrawling twentysomethings.

He stayed true to one of his favorite inspirations — hybrids — and played with the contrast between hard and soft, naughty and nice. But these were undoubtedly more grown-up clothes, albeit with a twist. Tweed coats and boxy jackets came vinyl-coated, and chunky handknit cardigans and crewnecks were lacquered stiff. Slouchy crepe trousers with leather panels on the front of the legs were a new take on the ubiquitous leather pant, while wool turtlenecks were rendered in naughty fishnet, and hooded puffer vests in black leather.
