WeeklyWang: sandals

20130125-225629.jpg

Eventhough it’s literally -30 outside , I am thinking about summer already. I just can’t wait to walk around my favorite spots in the city without wearing as much layers as an onion. These sandals from Alexander Wang are exactly what I want to be wearing whilst walking around aimlessly in said city. Summer for me can be summed up in one word : casual.

Inspiration: Legs on legs on legs.

From Altuzarra to Alexander Wang , a recurrent piece in a few spring collections have been gladiator heels. Although I’m not mentally ready to think about summer yet , I love the way this looks. I love the more modern piece from Wang , I think to make this outfit work the sandal should be minimalist and structures, a new take on the gladiator sandal.Flat gladiators are a bore , but any of these are far from that.

What will Wang do next?

20121129-105051.jpg

I found out this morning on Fashionista probably the most exiting news I have read in a while. It was announced today that Alexander Wang could possibly be Nicholas Ghesquières’s successor as designer for the french couture label , Balenciaga. Although this is not completely confirmed , I think that this would be such a great move. As long as his own label still exists. Balenciaga really needs to re-gain it’s past relevance and bringing the king of cool Wang in would really give them the push they need. While Alexander Wang and Balenciaga have a very different aesthetic , Balenciaga being structured and very french and Wang being so New-York-Girl cool , slouchy and atheletic , I think a mix of his effortless silhouette’s and Balenciaga’s parisian flair would be a perfect match. I am , as many people are , very intrigued by how this will develop and exactly what Wang will do.

WeeklyWang: Objects.

I don’t know how I diden’t know about this before but , Wang has a little collection of normal objects you would typically have around your house. You can now indulge in Wang-infused notebooks and ashtrays.Eventhough these items are a little pricey , I would maybe bike a little more often if I had this bike lock.  And a bike without purple tacky stars and hearts. My repulsive bicycle aside ,I would be so glad to find one of these pieces under my tree.

 

 

Hope this brightened up your Monday !

WeeklyWang: Fall campaign videos.

Just finished watching all the campaign videos for Fall/Winter by Alexander Wang and I’m in awe. The expansion of the brand across different art mediums  is really interesting. Fashion films and interviews are some of my favorite things to watch . I appreciate  seeing the pieces of clothing mingle with a given actor or character to create a full seamless image of the brand and  how the designer should perceive it. These two films I think are astonishing , especially the men’s video because of the soundtrack. The song playing in the back of the video is exactly the kind of music I like to listen to while writing or in the subway, fast paced but somehow smooth.
