New York Fashion Week, Fall 2009: Alexander Wang

This season, I'm judging the collections by hearts. I love Alexander Wang's Fall '09 collection so much, on a scale from one to five hearts, I give it five. Plus, SJP was in the house. Once again, the designer stayed true to his rock 'n roll style but delivered a fresher than fresh line that's more — dare I say — put together.
The color palette was intriguing — black, white, with sprinkles of plum — but it was the silhouettes and cuts that spoke loudest. Asymmetry played a big part. In particular, one-shouldered body-hugging mini dresses, some with large keyholes. Speaking of keyholes, they were found in the oddest but coolest places: on rib cages, legs, center of the chest. Since Wang loves menswear, oversized collared button-down shirts were tweaked, more avant-garde. Like Prada's resort '09 line, biker shorts were also thrown into the mix in the most non-sporty way possible. Sheer, tweed (not your grandmother's!), and fur were also Wangified. On behalf of cool girls everywhere, thanks for working your magic again, Wang.
