Alexander Wang Spring 13 at NYFW

I haven't liked a spring Alexander Wang collection this much in a long time. After being perturbed for a few seasons, last fall's slick and shiny collection wooed me again. As did the spring show a day or two ago. Wang loves his blacks and whites (they are part of his brands code after all) and as usual they were the hue of his strongest pieces. White on white appeared several times - most successfully in the outfit below with a flimsy dress layered under summer-weight outerwear. Those flimsy dresses with floating panels (created with fishing line embroidery) were the stand out pieces. Both graphic and delicate, solid and flimsy - they were slutty in the best possible way. Wang referred to them as Tron-like. As always, the accessories are weird and wonderful - the ultimate in strappy heels and surprisingly luxe net bags. Probably not the best heels to take off quickly and elegantly at 2am, but damn do they look good.

  1. This collection is thrilling - and somehow the tape down the models' heads works.
