Apparently fur and leather are going to be big fall 2013 fashion trends, as we have seen various designers use these materials to different extents in their collections. Alexander Wang is one of them, who decided to combine them with knitwear and create the cozy and absolutely winter-ready Alexander Wang fall/winter 2013-2014 collection demonstrated during New York Fashion Week. That’s definitely a collection to stand out instantly with its pieces, which surprisingly combine structural shapes with slouchy silhouettes and create the chicest result ever.
“Everyone is kind of looking at the same things right now,” Alexander was trying to explain his choice of materials for his newest collection. And let’s agree that he did manage to create something unique and unlike all the other collections showcased.
Black and gray are the main colors of the Alexander Wang fall/winter 2013-2014 collection, yet we can also see caramel tones, dark bottle greens, metallic silver and cream. The pieces come to be monochrome and devoid of additional embellishments, this way attracting our attention to the gorgeous textures and proportions. Despite its minimal allure, the Alexander Wang fall/winter 2013-2014 collection comes to be slightly edgy and way too interesting to be ignored. Layering, wrapping up and cutting over here or there, the designer managed to create something really wow-worthy.
The Alexander Wang fall/winter 2013-2014 collection features roomy coats in leather, alpaca and mélange fur, trousers loose around the hipline, tuxedos featuring kind of riff in duchesse satin, jumpsuits, skirts and dresses with surprising proportions. The looks presented were styled as interestingly as the outfits were. The most eye-catching pieces were the gigantic fur gloves. Other than that you can opt for tight knitted hoods, wedge heeled shoes worn with foot warmers and modern leather handbags. Wang’s minimalism and creativeness certainly won lots of applause!
