Alexander Wang Fall Winter Bag Ad Campaign

Alexander-Wang-Fall-Winter-2015-Bag-Ad-Campaign-5

Utilitarian and sophisticated, that’s the message that Alexander Wang wants to send for the Fall Winter 2015 Bag Collection. Take a look at the boxy white bag with long handles; it’s not only feminine, but also ‘cool’. Crafted with a side pocket to store your instant-essentials like keys or wallet.

Alexander Wang Said: ‘We started thinking about what forms the archetypes and architecture of a woman’s wardrobe, and then the idea of individual style, the street style has become where people follow trend, where they see an individual way of mixing things together becomes so documented and so copied’.

He ended with: ‘It’s really about individual style’.

The collection includes a gorgeous backpack; I love the white version, which includes a simple front pocket. Or the hobo to carry around your shoulder in black. So what do you think?

Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Categories:Fashion

When Alexander Wang resigned as Balenciaga’s creative director earlier this fall, many of us were wondering whether the 31-year-old designer would take his energy to expand his own eponymous label or not. Well, Wang left us with no worries as he revealed the flabbergasting Alexander Wang pre-fall 2016 collection. Inspired by “subverted bourgeois”, the concept behind Wang’s pre-fall collection is pretty simple: “there’s no big concept”, Wang said. “This is how I see people dress around me,” he added backstage, paraphrasing something he had already said the past season.

Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Striving to explore the interconnection between what’s regarded as feminine and what’s regarded as masculine, the line-up seems to follow New York’s skyline as well as past history and trends. As soon as we approach the first pieces, clear glam rock/ punk influences from the Eighties become evident, intertwining from time to time with more contemporary urban looks, the minimalistic perspective of which has been mixed with tailored cuts and luxe appliqués. This leads us to the main concept of the Alexander Wang pre-fall collection: tension. He almost philosophically analyzes all the tense interconnections between masculine and feminine, haute couture and streetstyle, high and low fashions.

The collection deliberately mixes high and low-key pieces, making it a perfect source of inspiration for those who are looking for a grown up version of what they used to wear at the height of the punk rock years, giving them the chance to break the boundaries between complexity and simplicity, expressing themselves freely. Wang has been able to unearth everyone’s inner desire regarding fashion, designing a collection that aims not only at being worn on a daily basis, but also at revamping the clothing into something his entourage, as well as friends would support. Somehow, he managed to lessen the distances, if not nullify them, between those tensions that have always classified the human nature into different and distinctive categories.

“I hate to say the cliché, but it’s mixing high and low. I want it to be the way I dress and the way I see my friends dress,” he declared.

That’s why within the line-up, an overly-expensive fur coat and a pair of basic jeans happily coexist, as well as mannish biker leather jackets and classically feminine dresses, the deconstructed lines of which helped reach the sophisticated streetstyle level Wang desperately wanted to achieve. Ultra-sensual pencil skirts, as well as long-sleeved lace shirts are some of the collection’s key pieces, while metallic studs, metal badge pins and chain belts are always there to remind us of Wang’s rebellious nature.

A long black dress charms us with its super-plunging neckline, creating an intriguing contrast with the black cargo pants combined with a sophisticated (and of course, black) version of a varsity jacket. Although the color palette mainly ranges from dark grey to black, Wang added a few touches of color, wherein a pale bright pink stands out. To top it all off, he completed his outfits with some sultry striped stockings and studded platform sandals one can’t help falling in love with. Wang goes beyond classes and categories, and it’s overwhelming, terrific and futuristic. And we love it!

Alexander Wang S/S15 Sneaker Bag

Categories:Other Brands

alexander_wang_ss15-sneaker-bag1While not exactly new (it has been out for at least a month now), I’ve been taking my time trying to understand the need for such a bag for some time. No, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight, but the truth is, I don’t hate it either. I guess the word I’m thinking of is ambivalence, which is honestly worse.

Yes, I’m talking about Alexander Wang’s new Sneaker Bag, which is exactly what the name suggests, a bag that looks like a sneaker. In fact, it looks like the back halves of two sneakers fused in the front, resulting in a base that well, looks like a pair of Siamese-twin-sneakers.

alexander_wang_ss15-sneaker-bag2Available in at least 3 different styles, there’s a top handle shoe bag-shaped bag, there’s a messenger with a sling (that also can be used as a clutch, albeit a bulbous one) and a flat top zip clutch, which is pretty much a standard offering now with most fashion/luxury houses.

Where it gets even more interesting is the colour combinations they come in, with my favourite being the one that comes in the green/white, which is very Adidas’ Stan Smith. And then there are the ones that come in either blue/black or grey/yellow that are quite Nike-esque, if you ask me.

And if you’re asking me if I think they are destined to be classics one can use forever, the answer is no. But if you are looking for something fun that’s also a guaranteed conversation starter, then this is the bag for you. Now available at Alexander Wang’s boutique in Hilton Shopping Gallery, you can also head online to Alexander Wang for a quick look on what’s what.

Alexander Wang Dumbo Backpack

Categories:Other Brands

alexander-wang-dumbo-backpack-black

I do not know how long you’ve been following us, but here is a fact. In the past, whenever we saw a Chanel backpack, even though we think it’s cool, we say ‘no’. The only backpack we had featured was theAlexander Wang’s Marti Backpack.

That’s was around a year ago, and now everything has changed. Cahnel Backpack is back, returned from the graveyard, they are now cool. More and more fashion girls are carrying them. It’s so popular that Alexander Wang decided to design another one.

The Alexander Wang Dumbo Backpack, take it in black for the most classic look. Now please hit me: ‘Tell why this bag is so special’.

Alright, where do I start?

Okay, do you remember the Alexander Wang Rocco Bag?

Yeah that bag.

The Alexander Wang Rocco Bag is one of the most classic bags from Alexander Wang. It got beautiful studs on the bottom which makes us drool. Still, some people love it and others hate it. The studs are quite heavy, which can drag your bag to bottom, due to graffiti. Still, if you can forget about that, it’s one of the most stunning designs ever and you will love to own one in your wardrobe.

This dumbo backpack, I would personally call it Rocco Backpack, but anyways. It has the same rose gold studs embellished like the Rocco bag on the bottom. The size is so cute that we will be guilty if we don’t share it with you.

A casual look, perfect to carry books and small laptops because it’s made from black textured leather (lambskin). The design is quite easy, but timeless. There is even an internal compartment to store all your everyday essentials.

This bag comes in different colors and variation, of course black is my favo. The size is measured 30 x 33 x 14 cm (W x H x D.

Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Categories:Fashion

The Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015 collection managed to thoroughly meet our expectations to see something wow-worthy, spectacular and one-of-a-kind, since as usual the designer combined the uncombinable, mixed the most clashing vibes and presented an obviously winning and powerful line of slick and glamorous clothing pieces. For his spring line, Wang found his inspiration in the sporty style, or sneakers more precisely, even though we never saw any tennis shoes and trainers, since the models walked down the catwalk wearing uber creative heeled sandals. He tried to explain his unique way of interpreting the love for sneakers in his clothing designs, stating, “They’re such an infatuation of my generation. But I wanted to reinterpret and manipulate the ideas and mix them with the cutting of Madame Grès and Fortuny.” This certainly worked and we couldn’t ask for a better and more creative line of to-die-for dresses, tops and trousers!

Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2015 Collection - New York Fashion Week

Just like the nature of sneakers is, the Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015 collection was unbelievably easy-to-wear, comfortable and everyday-worthy. Still, it was the big proportions of chic and glamour that made these pieces so bedazzling. And despite the fact that the sporty style was behind these stunning creations, the pieces appeared to be surprisingly polished, sleek and compact. This spring, the designer has some really outstanding style suggestions both for the working class ladies and for those, striving so hard to stand out in the crowd while sporting an effortless style.
In terms of the color palette, the Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015 collection was more about saturated and dark hues, at times broken by the touches of white, pops of orange, green, eclectic blue and yellow. As for the prints used, they all reminded of sneakers, so there you couldn’t see any ordinary stripes, dots or animal prints, but rather motifs of lacing, zigzags and interwoven abstract patterns. Mesh inserts, delicate pleats and plissés, plastic-resembling leather details and just ideal tailoring are other details that secured the success of the Alexander Wang spring 2014 runway show.

Black high-waisted satin trousers matched with curious crop tops and bodices, flirty yet strong mini dresses with flared and pleated skirts, body-con ones in bright hues, structural blazers and jackets, show-stopping tops featuring thematic prints and styles are some of the powerful says of Alexander Wang for this coming spring! The looks were finished off with sleek updos, minimal makeup the models wore, as well as creative heeled sandals and ones featuring mesh details. Some of the looks came also complemented with bags fusing black and white hues with slight touches of red.
With the Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015 collection Wang proved that it’s not important where your idea comes from, but rather how you manage to serve it to the public. We can rightly say he did it skillfully!
