ALEXANDER WANG | SPRING 2011
Fresh-faced models with hair plastered down with white clay, septum rings, and a silver lining.
The colors were white, gray, silver, a sherbet colored orange, sea foam green, and also metallic versions of all of the above. What I like about Alexander Wang is that he always know how to make RTW clothing flow. White on white is a lot going on for me, but it wasn't just that. It was the perfect layering of the looks and how most of the pieces had sort of an X-ray see-through look to show every piece.
Wang knows detailing, and styling, and re-vampification. The famous Alexander Wang vest are now white, and it is still very Wang because of the detail to styling. There are vests everywhere, and the outerwear, if you can even call it that because it is so light looking, is so airy and perfect for Spring. Let's call "outer-air" because that's what it looks like to me. There is a sort of naturalness to the collection from the make-up and hair that gives it a hard and soft aspect. Until now, I thought it was impossible to use the word "hard" when wearing an all white look, but it happened, and it's a good thing, a reallllly good thing.
