Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week is in the spotlight again! This time Alexander Wang is on the go with his brand new spring 2014 collection inspired by the minimalistic monochromic attitude of the nineties. The Alexander Wang spring/summer 2014 collection actually includes a lot of peculiar and challenging details. So which are they? Well, starting from probably the biggest emphasis of the show, we can’t but mention the resourceful play of the logo, encrypted on each of the works, being put on a leather particle or being represented by a whole cropped part of clothing. At times, you even needed to use your creativity to guess the way of placing his logo into some of the works, since it wasn’t immediately obvious. That was the most challenging part.
As Wang states, “I grew up in the Nineties when everything was about blatant advertising, so I said, ‘How do we take that and do it in our way?’ In fact, it couldn’t have been done any better.
Another peculiarity of the collection is the choice of the colors: preserved within black-and-white tones, sometimes accompanied with some shaded overtones of gray and baby blue. The pink leather bags came to make the image more complete.
The next characteristic feature about the Alexander Wang spring/summer 2014 collection worth mentioning was the nicely created cropping used in almost all of the works. On the one hand, this helped Wang to make his idea of the logo live, on the other hand, it created a wonderful tool for putting an accent on the interesting outlines created. In some of the works, he used a creative combination of tops and skirts, keeping them short and outlining the cool look of that very shortness.
Interestingly created transparency was another key feature in some of the Wang looks presented. The interesting blend of classic and casual details gave birth to an utterly fresh look, which would please the supporters of the most contradicted styles. This collection is a real innovation and it definitely can be called a new say in the world of fashion trends of nowadays.
