Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2014

Before NYFW had even started Alexander Wang managed to turn his show into the most talked about event of the week. Wang’s move to Brooklyn’s Navy Yard and his time slot switcheroo with Joseph Altuzarra made national news and left many wondering whether editors would make the trek over the bridge to the secluded locale. In retrospect those concerns seem silly – when Alexander Wang does anything the fashion set comes running. There are few designers who can boast as powerful a following as Wang has, so it’s safe to say that even if the show relocates to Omaha next season everyone will find the time to make their way there.

Unique venue choice aside the clothes Wang delivered made it all worth while. Fall’s look was considerably more austere than last season’s ‘Parental Advisory’ shirts and ironic nods to logomania. The show began with flashing lights and the appearance of a modish grey dress with multiple pockets that when paired with the slicked down hair and bleached brows looked utilitarian with a touch of sci-fi. The unexpected was on the agenda this season and Wang brought out look after look of ecstatic creativity. Paisley patterns on silk blouses, electric blue overcoats, leather fannypacks that defied logic and managed to seem cool – unpredictable elements that shouldn’t work together but did.

The collection’s spirit of eclecticism worked its way into the casting as well. New to the runway beauties mingled with supermodels in a show-stopping finale that crackled with excitement. Seeing catwalk veterans like Jacquetta Wheeler and Bridget Hall on the same stage with newcomers like opener Vanessa Moody provided a thrill. Especially when said stage started to move like a carousel, putting the final looks with their intricate laser cuttings and neon details on full display. A charming touch of whimsy and a fitting end to one of the season’s most anticipated shows.
