Since 2004 when Eponymous design brand Alexander Wang came into existence, Wang has shown us time and time again a new side of the Wang Girl. From the first carefree-party-girl-like collection, to the last Spring/Summer 18 deconstructed street wear and muted glamour show case, and now for the Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 18 he’s shown us a Wang girl who is ready to face the most impossible missions in the board room.
Last month, he announced that he would abandon the traditional fashion week schedule; instead, he will align with the pre-season calendar, debuting new collections in June and December with more consistent product drops throughout the year. But before dropping out of the regular shows he decided to do one last show for Fall/winter showcase.
The collection features a lot of dark sexy suit dresses, with dark electro and the sound of clacking high heels blaring from the speakers, a futuristic range of tailored suiting, high-tech survival gear and, of course, sexy party dresses, Wang definitely showed us how to do like a sexy-business-bad-gyal-dem.
The sharp, slicked-back hair, slim sunglasses which were a completely rad affair made in collaboration with Gentle Monster, long leather coats, gloves and multi-strapped bags looked right out of “The Matrix,” and a full flight suit, ski caps, a puffer coat and harness-like tops made the models appear more than ready to face whatever impossible mission .
Instead of typical office blazers, Wang’s versions had zippers in a variety of designs; his iteration of a skirt suit involved a leather mini with a fur jacket. Tweeds came in hot pink, black and white with statement buttons or zippers, and button-down blouses were worn oversized and accented with branded screen printing. His sporty side came through in a series of sweatsuits that read “A. Wang Platinum” (as in a credit card) and long underwear with the company logo prominently featured on the waistbands. Many other old-fashioned classics were given a twist as well: there were cozy, cable knit sweatpants, a velvet blazer transformed into a mini-dress, a fur coat worn over sweats and pantyhose bedazzled with “CEO.”
