Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2011

There can only be one king of New York, but who owns the crown? For several years now that rarefied honor has belonged to none other than Marc Jacobs, but with his last few collections Alexander Wang appears to be giving Marc a run for his money. Wang’s streetwise, downtown look is instantly recognizable – so much so that when he went in a different direction last season, the fashion crowd didn’t quite know what to do with itself. For fall Alex is back to black and cruising through familiar territory with the ease and confidence of a designer with a CFDA award under his belt. Keeping with the very East Coast theme of grunge meets glam, fur and satin were added to Wang’s usual repertoire of leather and jersey. Models strutted down the runway in heels embellished with mink and sunglasses tipped with fox; a decidedly luxurious touch for a label associated with ease and accessibility. Wang’s girl has grown up and is ready for splendor; with his Soho boutique launch only days away, the sudden foray into opulence seems perfectly timed.
