Alexander Wang S/S 2013- 10/10

My eyes were glued to my screen as I was watching the Alexander Wang S/S 2013 collection.

Literally glued.

Even the soundtrack was amazing.

The runway was a cleverly formed masterpiece with markings and scratches on the surface to capture the feel of the show; downtown NYC, street style. 



Blacks, whites, nudes and silvers were the colours of the night but what Wang did with these colours was just beautiful. Clean edges, frontal zips and net fabrics, the collection was edgy to say the least. 



Light leather was seen once again and I must give credit to Wang for making this trend work here, throw-on jackets were seen as well as leather shorts with a snakeskin-print look. 



Even peter-pan collars were seen in a modern, innovative way:


I am in love with the look below, look how artistic it looks and the way the fabric flows down the model is stunning.



The set-up of the show was nothing I've ever seen before. The models wearing white strutted down the runway and took their spots at different, spaced-out sections. When the lights went off we saw their looks transform into glow-in-the-dark, colourful pieces. Fab.
