Alexander Wang’s story is the stuff of fashion legends. While still a college sophomore, the <i>Teen Vogue</i> intern launched a collection of streetwise knits that caused such an industry stir, he was nominated for a CFDA fashion award just two years later. But while finely crafted cashmere sweaters put him on the map, Wang’s ready-to-wear is where his real wow is. From chic, second-skin pants to textured biker jackets and asymmetrical tops, this young star has staying power.
Boy/girl, tough/tender. Opposites attract in this dark and moody cache of wearable Wang. A geometric-pattern bustier dress with satin straps is a dramatic standout, while willowy dresses and whispery tops make lovely layering pieces for boxier jackets and vests.
Put the finishing touch on your summer look with the accessories featured here. Highlights include hats, lightweight scarves, and sunglasses — all offered at great prices.
Command attention in these militaristic accessories. Spiky combat boots, Lucite heels and ankle-buckled creepers are the future of fashion, and a chunky black belt riddled with hardware cinches the deal.
Leave it to fashion wunderkind Alexander Wang to deliver seriously cool shades for the downtown crowd. Statement-making styles range from exaggerated cat eyes trimmed in metal to retro-inspired wayfarers toughened up with zippers to chic square frames in mod translucent acetate.
