Alexander Wang Fall 2009: Sleek and Streamlined, with Jewelry

>> Last season brought shoes and a diffusion line, and for Fall 2009, Alexander Wang is branching out into jewelry as part of a collaboration with Brooklyn-based designer Paris Kain of AbraxasRex, who worked with Francisco Costa of Calvin Klein in the past.

The collection is small — four pieces — and includes silver cuffs and earrings that Alex says are neither worn pierced nor clipped on. "We’re working with ways of wearing earrings that aren’t typical.  How they work on your body, how they hang."

The vibe of Wang's Fall 2009 collection as a whole is a departure from his past work — more sleek and streamlined, more constructed and tailored, less "throw-on slouchy."  But it will still be pure Alex.  His after party may be canceled, but he plans on bringing the spirit to the runway with a Belvedere-sponsored open bar before the show and "the most theatrical beginning we’ve ever done."

Same goes for the jewelry's appearance — pure Alex.  “I wanted something very industrial," he elaborates. “But also animalistic. [The inspiration] started with the idea of Tina Turner in ‘Mad Max.’”  Pieces will wholesale $350 to $975, partially due to the tiny diamonds Paris Kain worked into the designs — it's his trademark.
