New York Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Alexander Wang

Julia, check. Erin, check. Anna, check. Do you need last names? Wang is quickly climbing up the fashion food chain so his Spring show was sure to be a frenzied event — that it was. And how fitting that the runway and models were liquified, since Hurricane Hanna did its own wet work on the audience. Thanks to some buddies over at Page Six Magazine and their town car, I was moderately soaked. But Wang was wet n' wild.

With Miami Vice as inspiration, there were cool deco hues amidst the designer's favorite black. The collection kicked off with oversized tanks, leather (and suede) and du-rags, but soon colors emerged creating a lovingly tough aesthetic. Wang continues to deconstruct tee shirts, dresses and tee shirt dresses, thus draped and looped cotton basics were a plenty. But Wang also played with sweat pants — creating legging like layers — and jackets — from poppy blazers to loose cardigans. Some denim pieces were also Wangified; I was particularly drawn to a chain handle jean bag. And of course, Wang sent his new shoes down the slick runway, elevating the models, and the clothes, to first name status.
