10 Years of Alexander Wang
10 is a great number. Our favourite, in fact – for obvious reasons. Alexander Wang has joined us in the appreciation of this mystical number – his brand is turning ten this year, so he will re-release ten bestsellers from the last ten years of runway shows. With all this talk of the number ten, we’re naturally very much on board. The selection of all-black pieces were chosen not by Wang but by his army of Instagram and Twitter followers (or Wang-ites, to use the correct term). And they have good taste – Spring 2009’s up-front, embellished mesh dress. Fall 2008’s low-waisted leather shorts. A fringed leather jacket. A draped jersey dress. “My style has evolved, but at the same time there is a core sensibility that has remained consistent in my collections.” Wang says. “I have always liked the idea of mixing the refined with the imperfect, creating items that are not precious.” So, if you missed a particular favourite you might just have another chance – and, with a brand sparkling new store on Mayfair’s Albermarle Street, you’ll no longer have so far to go.
The collection will be available this September, exclusively at Alexander Wang stores and on his website.
