Alexander Wang S/S 2012

Posted by Stephan Moskovic | September 11th, 2011

If there are two buzzwords to associate with Alexander Wang’s Spring show they would be “effortless” and “technical”. The Wang girls sported fresh from the shower hair, minimal makeup and a series of sporty looks that wouldn’t seem out of place at the local Equinox. One might assume that all this downtown chic is just the natural vibe of the cooler than cool cast, but that is where the technical bit comes in. Wang’s runway was filled with pieces that were laser cut, laden with exotic materials and styled within an inch of their lives by Karl Templer. The perfection on the catwalk is no happy accident, even though the line remains a favorite of girls who want the “just rolled out of bed” mystique. What Wang does best is tread the line between calculated and cool, his girls may look like they don’t care but rest assured that they do. Everything about this collection was on trend, right down to the runway return of Elise Crombez.

    Such a fun cast. Liya, Elise, Hilary, Suvi… thank You!

  2. Great post and I think you analysis of his show was just perfect! Personally I think it was a little bit too sporty but this is just a question of taste. What I really liked was exactness, the perfection that was in the garments’ cuts.

    Just one point: I am missing a list of the models? Some of them I recognized but didn’t you get to post the list of models that were booked?
