Alexander Wang’s much anticipated first collection was definitely, worth the wait . Wang’s usual downtown roughness was toned down with the parisian’s brands classicism, upgrading Cristobàl Balenciaga’s familiar rounded theatrical cuts to modern cocoon coats. The cracked marble effect was a recurrent theme , from the runway to most of the pieces. As predicted , the show was in a much more intimate venue and less of a conceptual spectacle then Wang’s usual show , but that only emphasized the simple beauty of the clothes. My favorite pieces where the marble inspired pumps, again a reconstructed classic silhouette .Looks like the edgy urban Wang girl has grown up into a proper( but still effortlessy cool) parisienne.
