Alexander Wang S/S 2017
Mood board: Crisp white looks and striped blue pieces revealing bare midriffs accented with criss-crossed lacing were prevalent at the beginning, going into the downtown edginess of torn denim that Alexander Wang is known for, before it took a progression into a more sporty runway vibe. This sportiness was a natural segue into the big reveal: Wang’s collaboration with Adidas Originals on a capsule collection.
Scene setting: Alexander Wang took over Pier 94, a dark, cavernous event space in New York. The after party, which was held in the same venue immediately after, came complete with a faux 7-Eleven, an Icee truck, and a van that handed out McDonald’s cheeseburgers, fries and McGriddles sandwiches.
Best in show: The black neoprene dresses accented with fluorescent piping were highlights of the collection. A slinky, sequined iridescent gown was sexy, minimal and easy.
