Alexander Wang Resort 2012
While i'm not such a great fan of Alexander Wang, I have to give credit where credit is due; he is a designer who seems to be growing from strength to strength as he learns to sift through his ideas in an effort to present a fresh aesthetic, as well as wearable clothes. And wearable clothes there were in this collection!
Sure, his usual motif of sportwear-as-actual-clothes continued, but there was something so fresh and impressively minimalistic about these pieces, that even his staunchest critic would have to concede.
Introducing scuba-wear, Wang even layered the swimsuit, making it not just a thing for the beach, but an active part of an everyday look. I especially loved the ultra-cool outerwear and shirt-dresses, that i'm sure will be a hit with the New York City crowd.
