playing it cool

>> You can always count
on Alexander Wang for upbeat music, a boisterous crowd, and covetable clothes, but this season, he really seems to have come into his own.  The show this afternoon attracted plenty of fashion notables, including Terry Richardson and Julia Roitfeld, and had Erin Wasson once again styling behind the scenes.

Speaking of Erin, her personal style has really started to infiltrate Alex's collection: the black leather, biker boots, zippers, and hanging chains were all there.  Also, I saw a little bit of the Olsen's The Row in the sheer jersey tees.

But overall, the models, who walked in a smoke machine-induced haze, ended up looking very cool grungy goth girl to me.  There was a nude gauze skirt, a furry bag, a dress with a mini-train, and a beaded vest that all caught my eye — but when the designer jumps up and down and claps at the end, you can't help but catch the energy.

If you're in the mood for more Alex, this up close and personal look at his jeans that zip into two halves is always fun.
