Four seasons in at Balenciaga and Alexander Wang has officially cemented his own stamp on the label, fusing the principal shapes of founder Cristobal with his own brand of sporty edge. For SS15 the designer proposed a series of curve-shoulder jackets, plunge-back evening dresses, sculpted peplum tops and high-neck knits. The marble prints on a series of waisted vests and pencil dresses mirrored the cracked-glass effect of the runway and Wang’s now-signature accessories (the silver bow bracelets and belts and safety pin brooches) added a sleek polish to the looks. The luxe element came through in the fabrics – shrunken jackets came in shaved fox fur, trousers were made of laser-cut velvet and intricate embroidery featured on shifts.
