Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – New York Fashion Week
The Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015 collection managed to thoroughly meet our expectations to see something wow-worthy, spectacular and one-of-a-kind, since as usual the designer combined the uncombinable, mixed the most clashing vibes and presented an obviously winning and powerful line of slick and glamorous clothing pieces. For his spring line, Wang found his inspiration in the sporty style, or sneakers more precisely, even though we never saw any tennis shoes and trainers, since the models walked down the catwalk wearing uber creative heeled sandals. He tried to explain his unique way of interpreting the love for sneakers in his clothing designs, stating, “They’re such an infatuation of my generation. But I wanted to reinterpret and manipulate the ideas and mix them with the cutting of Madame Grès and Fortuny.” This certainly worked and we couldn’t ask for a better and more creative line of to-die-for dresses, tops and trousers!
Just like the nature of sneakers is, the Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015 collection was unbelievably easy-to-wear, comfortable and everyday-worthy. Still, it was the big proportions of chic and glamour that made these pieces so bedazzling. And despite the fact that the sporty style was behind these stunning creations, the pieces appeared to be surprisingly polished, sleek and compact. This spring, the designer has some really outstanding style suggestions both for the working class ladies and for those, striving so hard to stand out in the crowd while sporting an effortless style.
In terms of the color palette, the Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015 collection was more about saturated and dark hues, at times broken by the touches of white, pops of orange, green, eclectic blue and yellow. As for the prints used, they all reminded of sneakers, so there you couldn’t see any ordinary stripes, dots or animal prints, but rather motifs of lacing, zigzags and interwoven abstract patterns. Mesh inserts, delicate pleats and plissés, plastic-resembling leather details and just ideal tailoring are other details that secured the success of the Alexander Wang spring 2014 runway show.
Black high-waisted satin trousers matched with curious crop tops and bodices, flirty yet strong mini dresses with flared and pleated skirts, body-con ones in bright hues, structural blazers and jackets, show-stopping tops featuring thematic prints and styles are some of the powerful says of Alexander Wang for this coming spring! The looks were finished off with sleek updos, minimal makeup the models wore, as well as creative heeled sandals and ones featuring mesh details. Some of the looks came also complemented with bags fusing black and white hues with slight touches of red.
With the Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015 collection Wang proved that it’s not important where your idea comes from, but rather how you manage to serve it to the public. We can rightly say he did it skillfully!
