Playful Sophisticate…Alexander Wang AW11

by jennine on February 13, 2011

I have never been to a show with quite the caliber of Alexander Wang. Getting an invite to the show, was just a miracle, really… so I really didn’t know what to expect. Arriving there, the paparazzi of street style photographers were out snapping pics of models and fashion icons… I wish I followed them more closely because I really didn’t know who was who.. ah, next season. I did however catch Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington chatting, it was hard with my fumbling hands to catch the moment, I tried to take photos all blurry, then Anna shot me the death scare and I ran away. So there is my moment above.

Admittedly, I had become a bit bored with Alexander Wang the past season, but maybe because he’s really better with the AW collections, this season in particular, I loved the bold silhouettes, the knits and sheers and playfulness that I hadn’t really noticed about his work before. Of course, it was painfully cool, but at the same time delightfully fun. Pillow inspired fur collars, dresses that made me think of going to the carwash. Red tribble shoes.. and science fiction metallics… all done with sophistication that a woman of any age can pull off. Maybe it was because I was there and super excited, but this collection is one of my favorites…

Doesn’t this collar remind you of a travel pillow?

A luxury travel pillow?

Tuxedo gorilla style… with sci fi pants… and ruby slippers, dang…

I don’t know how he did this top, but the knit transforms into a sheer right on her body…and look at those maribou slippers, have you seen anything like that?

Carwash skirt!

Look at that stride.

I really love the futuristic pants, they would be great for evening wear. I can’t imagine how exciting that show must have been, I would have lost my mind.

The picture of Grace and Anna is priceless. Truly an amazing capture. I agree about Wang, I did not love his Spring collection, I felt like he was slipping, but he proved me wrong with this one. I loved it.
