Alexander Wang’s Optimism

15 Sep

Alexander Wang’s SS 2011 Collection seems to be very zened out on Saturday at Pier 94. The young New York superstar designer turned 180degrees from his previous designs that showed strong personality with sporty details to ALL WHITE, even the hair. His show started with stream of white with complex geometrical tailoring and longer waistlines and hemlines. Then somewhat futuristic metallic shapes of silver and rose gold added more light and quirkiness to the collection. He had some light toned colours towards the end such as peach, terracotta and mint. His designs still seemed to carry on his fun, funky and youthful side with random doodling printed on the fabric and also new interpretations of rebellious biker jackets and sporty zip ups. He’s known for his street edgy styles but this collection the designer seem to stepped out of his comfort zone and made everything a little more luxurious than casual. Well, I’m still completely loving the shoes. ♥

It seems like playsuit will be still strong in coming Spring Summer and the whole comfy looseness that Alexander Wang loves so much doesn’t seem to change.

I am loving his geometric play in his tailoring and with the metal patches and his loose jumpsuits with cross back straps. His flowing fabrics are very beautiful and his softer approach with leather is quite uplifting. I’m not too sure about the whole doodling on fabrics though… It’s a great idea but doesn’t entice me at all. Even though white is always one of the hardest colour to manage and to wear, some of his pieces will look great when mix matched with other casual wears. I was getting quite bored of all the strong black leather and hardcore goth inspired looks. Studs, spikes, leather… you had your time and let the Optimism begin! 🙂
