>> Alexander Wang's playful sportiness and menswear-inspired tailoring are back for Pre-Fall 2012. "We started with the idea of tromp l'oeil, something quite classic but less in a whimsical way and more the idea of deceptive textures and patterns," Wang explains. Thus, the season's pencil skirts, structured jackets, and cropped trousers are punctuated with cleverly tactile details: peekaboo pleats, mesh knits "printed" with geometric burnouts, and fine wools coated with a suede-like metallic. Accessories include a clutch in the form of a jumbo eyeglass case and a miniature version of the Rocco bag called the "Rocky."
