Pier 36 on the east river was a strategic location for the chaos the talented RTW designer Alexander Wang attracts. Big venue, small catwalk and barely 3 rows of seats. After the front row du jour celebrities (Kim Kardashian, Kanye, Nicki Minaj, etc) settled into their seats the unexpected themed FW15 collection stomped it's way past us with barely enough time to take in.
It was a departure from his recent collections that seemed to be catering to a sophisitcated almost mainstream clientele. His Fall 2015 collection was defiant, Goth inspired, yet still reflective of the Alexander Wang playful attitude.
The intricate construction and details of this exquisite collection were an added layer of luxury that balanced the street urban feel to the severe almost mannish silhouettes. The chunky lug heels combat boots and silver embellished bags will be a on the covetable fashion trend follower shopping list. The sexy lush goth witch is a trend I predict will be interpreted by those who may or may not know who Siouxsie and Banshees are. Black is back !
