NYFW Report: Alexander Wang Works Winter Warmers
In the wake of Alexander Wang’s recent inauguration at Balenciaga, it was only natural that all eyes would be on the design sensation for his own label’s Fall 2013-14 collection showcase during New York Fashion Week.
And eyes there most certainly were, from indie rocker Alison Mosshart to Zoë Kravitz and Natasha Lyonne stylishly perched on the front-row, the fashion world eagerly waited to see what Alexander Wang would present for his very own collection.
On Saturday evening, models took to the catwalk at the grand Cunard Building to the soundtrack of “Eye of the Tiger, dressed in a montage of fur outerwear; and Wang’s timing could not have been more acute, with Storm Nemo blasting a snow blizzard outside the venue.
The collection was sporty, sophisticated, and seriously cosy as furs, mohair, alpaca, and anything resembling hair was integrated into the Fall 2013 lookbook.
Models wore sizable woolen coats with arm-length fur mittens, dropped-waistline skirts, and fuzzy shrugs that appeared in a dominant palette of charcoal grey and black with injections of tan. While leathers and voluminous designs brought added texture and beauty to Wang’s fresh collection.
Presenting yet more elements for his already textured showcase, the 29-year-old designer mixed in iridescent fabrics and shimmering silks at NYFW, which came in the form of mohair sweaters and a casual two-piece tuxedo.
And then there were the accessories. This season’s statement accessory was undoubtedly the fur boxing-glove mittens and mohair heels which gave us as much “fur-for-thought” as Celine’s ‘furkinstocks’ from the Spring 2013 shows!
