Alexander Wang presented his much-anticipated Fall 2013 collection for Balenciaga in Paris on Thursday. Wang has been lauded by critics and editors for paying homage to the Balenciaga archives while making the clothes feel modern, and for his use of texture. Read through some of the reactions to the collection below, and see every look here in the gallery.
Anna Wintour: "I'm very proud. I thought it was a very smart way to start, by not giving us too many fireworks."
Cathy Horyn: "If he continues to strike that modern balance between couture and the street, he will renew a great name — and win over doubters."
Lorraine Candy: "This was a strong, elegant, and feminine debut collection, which gives us hope of even greater things to come from Alex."
