As you say Alexander Wang, you instantly imagine hot trending pieces that become the fashion craze of the season, making everyone dream to have them in their wardrobes. The Alexander Wang fall/winter 2014-2015 collection presented in the framework of New York Fashion Week fall 2014 certainly has such killer pieces that will definitely turn into must-have staples the coming fall season. This can be the striking boots, booties and shoes cut on the back, the coat-dresses with lots of pockets on the front part or the wonderful outerwear options!
It was an outerwear-inspired collection, where coats served both as actual coats and as mini dresses, jackets and even tops that will need very little effort to make the traffic stop! The Alexander Wang fall/winter 2014-2015 collection started with a line of gray coat-dresses, accompanied by knee-high boots, scarves and nothing else. Then, there came the awesome coats worn over knee-length tailored shorts and leather shirts.
The uniqueness of the Alexander Wang fall/winter 2014-2015 collection doesn’t stop here, as we later discover the creative printed shirts buttoned only in the neck and featuring another printed top under it. It is here that the collection gets washed by a pop of color, bringing eclectic blue and lemon raincoats, and then a deep fuchsia zip dress again worn over leather shirts, the green textured knitted sweater featuring leather inserts, the red and green sleeveless fur coat-blouses and the blue short-sleeved one, as well as the laser cut tailored short suits in blue, purple, yellow and green presented at the end of the show.
Overall, the Alexander Wang fall/winter 2014-2015 collection seems to be an attempt to break the common fashion stereotypes and show the versatility of fabrics and textures. We should admit that the designer accomplished his principle perfectly well, thus using leather for designing shirts, fur and tweed for creating tops and dresses. It was a powerful collection, one that requires lots of boldness and fashion awareness for rocking these conversation-starters!
