Easy silk blouses, slip-on frocks, and loose-fitting trousers are what have come to define Alexander Wang as a designer and this Resort 09 is full of gorgeous examples. Resort, the midseason phenomenon quickly gaining fashion clout, is often where we see the most clear examples of a designer's aesthetic. These deliveries do not come with the spectacle of a runway show (save for, say, Chanel) nor do they aim to redefine a designer's persona. They are, in fact, tried and true offerings of what works and what will sell--which is precisely what makes them interesting. What did we love most from Wang's Resort 09? His foresight in using orange as a pop-color and the ease at which these garments could be worn during both holiday and vacation happenings. Wang reminds us, over and over again, that his brand is far more serious than it looks.
