There is something irresistible about the gritty youthfulness of Alexander Wang’s endeavors. For the materials enthusiast, his Fall has all the hallmarks of an interesting collection, from a rubber bonded tweed cut in a voluminous but bulk-free coat, to a leather sweatshirt, first laser-cut then patchworked again. A puffer jacket gets a little hairy with needle-punch wool quilting that adds a twist to this winter warrior.
And if anyone can make a tshirt exciting, it’s him. A cobalt basketball jersey has instant staple appeal, especially for the body-beautiful who be enticed by the lack of bulk of bonded seams. Also on our shopping lists: ultra-long leather trousers meant to be crinkled on the calves, the updated baseball shirt in softest suede and the new Wally backpack in embossed “elephant skin” leather.
