I am still in awe at the creativity of Alexander Wang. I loved the concept of having the models on a conveyer belt and the setting itself was genius (although, it made me a little dizzy watching it). Wang always comes up with an ingenious show and has a real aptitude for creating spectacular manifestations. Diane Kendal on behalf of NARS said backstage "Alex likes his girls to be quite boyish and very strong" which was certainly portrayed throughout this show with bleached eyebrows and sleek, short hair on all the models; Miley Cyrus inspired maybe?
This collection was all about polo necks and collars- a trend that I can see being very popular, especially in the UK. Another regular occurrence were thigh high boots which have been becoming increasingly popular over the past few months and also, boots that stop mid way between the foot and the knee which I've not seen as much of but again, can see becoming a huge trend. There were endless amounts of outwear in this collection, which I suppose is appropriate for the NY weather at the moment, and abundant amounts of it was oversized which has been a colossal trend so far at Fashion Week. The colour palette involved neon colours along with nude colours which is a particular favourite contrast of mine, notably for fall seasons. Bold patterns were also among the mix of themes in this innovative show and the texture of some pieces in particular was compelling.
All in all, I adore this collection and hope to see more designers following in Wang's footsteps creating more alluring sets like this. Definitely one of my favourites, if not my favourite, shows from NYFW I've seen so far.
Here are a few of my favourite looks from the show-
