The go-to brand for hip young urbanites, Alexander Wang was established by its namesake in New York in 2007. The winner of 2008’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, Wang quickly became known for his casually chic, grunge-tinged collections. Worn by the designer’s off-duty model and socialite friends, Wang’s sporty, relaxed separates generated a healthy amount of buzz from the get-go, buoyed of course by Anna Wintour’s blessing-of-coolness.
Wang consistently impresses critics not only with his keen eye for tailoring, but with his enviable technologically savvy touches. Each season sees the designer improving upon the look and feel of his directional, downtown pieces, with leather and jet black coloring both central to the label’s off-duty look.
