>> For Resort 2012, Alexander Wang was inspired by "the idea of speed and things that felt fast, like competitive swimming and cycling." The athletic references are easy to spot; the collection features shiny, over-sized windbreakers, mesh racing-style vests, and a plethora of primary colors. In keeping with the sporty theme, Resort 2012 also marks the debut of swimwear and sneakers for Wang. The new pieces are exactly what one would expect from Wang: streamlined with sexy details. The swimsuits are tank-style with cut-outs, while the sneakers — available in three colors — feature patches of textured skins, gleaming nylon and a vaguely '70s silhouette.
