Each and every piece in this ready to wear collection entitled T by Alexander Wang is to-die-for. I have never once been disappointed with an item of his, and this is owed to the commonly-found structured silhouettes and bold styling in his collections. Need I mention that nobody does black better than Alexander Wang? Enjoy my commentary along with the photos of this fall 2013 collection.
Black and blue dominate this collection. Many designers attempt this scheme, as blue is the one color many are not afraid to wear. What I admire about Alexander Wang is that he is able to create ready-to-wear so as to make a not-so-daring lady look like she takes risks in fashion. There is in fact no risk in wearing something that easily flatters!
Layer onto layer onto layer, the above look is three stages of beauty. I absolutely love the flat lace booties – it just adds that sporty feel to an otherwise generic-looking patent ankle boot. Details, details…
When i say that I love structured silhouettes, I mean I LOVE structured silhouettes. The stiffness of leather is used to Alexander’s advantage in this one. Lines and curves turn this coat-skirt ensemble into a winner. It is reminiscent of the leather bags in the store that catch my eye – the kind that assert one’s presence! Minimal can be so in-your-face sometimes.
