Winner of 2008’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, Alexander Wang is one of the pioneering designers for the monochrome health-goth movement of recent times. Using black as the predominant colour, his latest collection comprises a series of cotton-blend jumpsuits with cross-back design; soft track pants and leather lunch tote bags for an effortlessly urban-casual appearance suitable for day and night. In tune with the technological zeitgeist of our times and armed with a keen eye for detail, Wang brings a whole new dimension to the conventional utilitarian aesthetic while appeasing to a wider female audience with boldly-coloured cut-out cocktail dresses.
Undisputedly the most hotly-anticipated collaboration of 2014, the Alexander Wang X H&M collection meant that high-street fans of the latter could get a taste of the casually chic, grunge-tinted aesthetic of luxury fashion designer Alexander Wang. Bold, daring and always one step ahead of the curve, Wang takes an avant-garde approach to his collection by playfully toying with asymmetry – crafting cascading draped tops and high-contrast shorts for an elegantly androgynous look.
