Alexander WangSpring Summer 2015 New York

Runway Review
9/7/2014 Faith Cummings/fashionwirepress.com

Size tags and a bleeding logo were Alexander Wang's inspirations for his Spring lineup: an influence that began with the Resort 2015 collection in which he was preoccupied with care instructions. He's been in the business of street smart functionality for quite sometime now and that sensibility poured out of a tuxedo-inspired dress, pleated trousers, and a tie-waist utility jacket all in black and white and given the brand's signature sporty chic flair with boxy mesh blouses.

When the color was introduced, it came on strong and bold with tangerine, lime, turquoise, and banana. Sheer-inset scuba-inspired dresses hugged the curves along with ribbed tops that gripped the bust. Like almost every designer thus far, crop tops were on the agenda in a fringed fashion: quite sleek when anchored by stovepipe pants. That pant silhouette was even used to riff on the classic Wang sweatpant, which felt undeniably Fall in heather grey when coupled with a sheer henley top.

Mesh paired with leather conjured up that classic Wang athletic-inspired grit on a bomber jacket, sexy mini dresses, and a colorblock crop top that mimicked a modern-day breastplate: for fashionable survival in the concrete jungle of course. Perforation also ushered in a tennis-inspired moment on flouncy skirts, lace-up necklines, and a contrast-collar shirt - perhaps designed with Serena Williams in mind.

"It" girls love to douse themselves in A. Wang's more sensual numbers: the brand's draped jersey dresses are go-tos season after season. His steamiest looks here were form-fitting, printed turtleneck dresses with pleated skirts and a trio of patterned bustier crop top and stovepipe trouser combinations.Where those didn't go above and beyond in the glamour department, Wang had a trio of long-sleeve gowns with unexpectedly placed mesh insets in store.

The pieces shown were really good: seductive and cool with that downtown spirit that is intrinsic to the brand. The details were much more advanced and skilled than the Wang of yesteryear, but the message was essentially the same - girls who know fashion love A. Wang and they'll definitely be chomping at the bit to get their hands on this collection.
