Bold colors, inspired by sports, great silhouettes and always party-ready, Alexander Wang presented us another great collection of versatility and the new chic. Raf Simons and Karl Lagerfeld have refined that sneakers are not just for treadmills and elliptical trainers; but Wang tells us that baseball skirts can be worn outside of the court with confidence.
It was not a huge surprise when Wang was hired by Kering to head Balenciaga. Wang’s sportive attitude fits right into what Nicolas Ghesquière has created for Balenciaga. Even though Wang’s designs are signaturly recognizable, he is doing great to part his own label from what Balenciaga offers. Alexander Wang is much more athletic and, of course, American in the heart.
