Alexander Wang AW16
The lowdown: By staging his AW16 show in an imposing church on Park Avenue instead of a hip underground club or derelict car park, Alexander Wang seemed to be making the statement that his girl is all grown up. Although street influences continue to reign supreme, from slogan tees and logo-ed stockings to micro-mini hemlines, there was a definite sense of maturity in the collection, particularly in the luxe fabrics - perhaps an influence from his tenure at Balenciaga.
Tweed jackets came shrunken and were matched to little A-line skirts, while mohair cardigans, printed silk maxi dresses and sheer lace tops in a mostly black and white palette were toughened up with rivets aplenty and chain and leather trims. Low-slung trousers, steel-capped ankle boots and oversized sweatshirts and jean jackets ensured the line-up stayed on the youthful side. This mash-up of ingénue and ladylike indicates the brand's commitment to grow up with its customer and is, in itself, a sign of evolution.
