Models at the Alexander Wang show for his AW14/15 collection stood robotic and warrior-like with their black slicked and combed down hair and pale faces. An initial set of grey, muted styles – stiff shift dresses and jackets with multi-pockets – gave way to brighter shades of azure blue and chartreuse, before a finale of heat-activated looks that changed colour before onlookers’ eyes.
It was another collection that highlighted comfort for the winter season. Layering; polo necks and light-weight jackets, over the knee riding boots and safari vests created this season’s vision of Wang’s casually cool downtown style.
Whilst I won’t personally be clamouring for the clothes from this collection, the accessories are another matter. As Vogue described, the bags were “more like belts slung over shoulders streaming in flask holders, camera and iPhone cases. A place for everything.” There was also a camera bag with a hook for a water bottle. Fashion and function right there, Blog Reader.
