Ghesquière for Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2013
On Saturday Alexander Wang held his final solo runway show before debuting his premiere collection as creative director of Balenciaga. For fall/winter 2013 he, like many other NY designers who have shown thus far, was feeling for fur, black and grey, and the statement coat. While I loved the runways accessories – furry mittens and asymmetrical heels, in particular – and his venture into unexplored, drop-waist territory, there were classic Alexander Wang shapes that emerged throughout the show and even a few subtle odes to his predecessor at Balenciaga, monsieur Nicolas Ghesquière.
