Leave It to Alexander Wang to Transform Your Wardrobe Essentials Into Something With Shock Value
There were blazers and blouses at Alexander Wang's Spring '17 show, but none of them look like the ones already in your wardrobe. The master of street wear turned the concept of wardrobe basics on its head, transforming a button-down shirt into a curve-flaunting dress, a blazer into something far more subversive — neither of which are the kinds you'd actually wear to the office.
Despite his references to staples, this has nothing to do with building a wardrobe of essentials. The lineup is all made up of trends meant for showing off on the runway — and all over town. Pinstripes and sweet floral prints cut into crop tops paired with Bermuda shorts and sheath dresses seemingly crafted from scuba suits. To finish, the designer debuted his Adidas collaboration right there on the catwalk, giving the fashion world a whole new lineup of sportswear to love. On the whole, it's the intersection of the norm and the new, a crossroads Wang knows and navigates with skill every season. Take a look through to see what that means for Spring '17.
