T by Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

CATEGORIES:Fashion

Utilitarian styles along with a practical demonstration of how to layer your clothes artistically define the newest T by Alexander Wang pre-fall 2016 collection, which takes us to the undergrounds, mixing a soft sporty-chic allure with overall workwear silhouettes and overtones. Available already today at AlexanderWang.com, this collection perfectly captures the true essence of the brand’s debut collection, which Wang designed when unveiling his first T by Alexander Wang show back in 2009. Wang’s diffusion line has so far always delivered casual apparel yet with an ultra-modern, and at times even sophisticated touch, drawing inspirations from the suburban subcultures.

T by Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

As for this pre-fall 2016 collection, we can specifically see such a dual haute couture/casual style both in the high and low combinations he chose to showcase in the lookbook, such as the button-down shirts paired with the oversized knit sweaters, as well as in some unconventional pieces in of and themselves, such as the classic Oxford tops he made unique by dramatically recreating and reinventing their shapes.

He also reinvented the workwear aesthetics proving that wearing utilitarian clothes can be tres chic indeed, especially if the looks get completed with geometrically layered appliqués and are refined with Wang’s terrific tailoring skills and great attention to detailing. Almost all of the proposals contain four or more garments layered either on top or on the side of one another, which is a choice that adds an overall heavyweight grunge look to the entire collection.

Although mostly focusing on ethereal white and blush colors, the T by Alexander Wang pre-fall 2016 line-up unarguably evokes a mood peculiar to the colder autumnal days, in which carrying around an extra sweater is always a good idea. The best part of the collection is that each ensemble is meant to be paired with one another, from the clean-cut minimalist coats to the cropped denim pants and skirts, from the earthy-toned suede jackets to the gray athleisure tops.

Wang himself recommends us a few extremely unconventional, yet quite futuristic combinations close to the anti-fashion aesthetics many labels are incorporating in their collections, which are definitely worth daring to wear. There’s, for example, a super long white t-shirt dress combined with a pair of bell-bottom jeans, a light orange shirt dress with a grey skirt worn underneath and an oversized striped sweater to complete the look, and even a white shirt tossed over a white coat look with only a gray sweater interrupting such a ton-sur-ton combination.

Details such as ribbed knits, elastic waists and frayed edges, along with simple yet cozy ensembles including waffle-knit jumpers serve as the icing on the cake, embracing the Nineties-inspired grunge style in a more modern way.

The Alexander Wang Rocco Handbag is not a new bag, but for the Fall and Winter 2014 Collection, it’s being reinvented and re-styled.

Usually the Rocco comes with pebbled leather and nowadays they are available in plenty of colors. This bag is famous for its studded bottom; especially ‘rose gold’ is simply to-die-for.

But anyways, the new Rocco bag is made in neoprene injected black leather and to be honest, it’s looks more like an accessory to company your ‘tough girl’ appearance, the ‘motorcycle’ type of look. Carry this bag, hop on your motor and travel the cities.

If you take another glance, the body of the bag also appears to be, or look quite similar to a tire of a car.

The Alexander Wang Rocco Bag in Neoprene Injected Black comes with two zipper pockets in one exterior gusset, a shoulder strap with a signature dog clips, an interior zipped pocket with logo patch and phone pocket, so basically enough compartments to store our essentials.

Measuring 13.5’ x 9.25’ x 9.25’ (L x H x W) inches, priced at $995 USD via Alexander Wang e-store.

British Invasion: Short Biography of Alexander McQueen

CATEGORIES:Fashion

Innovative ideas and strong direction have always been two key pieces needed to make it in the fashion industry. Lucky for us Alexander McQueen had both characteristics (and lots of ‘em) at an early age.

McQueen was born on the East End of London in 1969. The youngest of six children, McQueen began making dresses for his three older sisters at very young age. Not soon after, he publicly announced (only to his friends and family, of course) his intentions of becoming a fashion designer. Most of us changed our dream career at least five times between middle and high school but not McQueen – from very early on, he was determined to become a designer. That passion and determination prompted him to drop out of school at the age of sixteen and explore the world of fashion. His first break into the industry was with an apprenticeship on Savile Row with Gieves & Hawkes.

There, he mastered his skills, tailoring and embroidering for the rich and famous. Even a few princes! McQueen later decided to take his skills elsewhere and landed a job working with Romeo Gigli in Milan, Italy. However, McQueen still had more to learn. McQueen later returned to London and enrolled at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design where he gained his master’s degree in fashion. Upon his graduation, his entire collection was purchased by influential designer Isabella Blow. If all that wasn't glamorous enough, McQueen was appointed at Givenchy as John Galliano’s successor in 1996! Although it caused tons of controversy, McQueen dove headfirst into the position. His first collection wasn’t too successful but his shows that followed were filled to the brim with controversy – an amputee model, robot guns, and a naked model wearing a gas mask were just some of the features at his shows. Nevertheless, he continued working at Givenchy until 2001, when he decided that the company was holding him back creatively.

From then on, McQueen’s brand only grew more, opening stores all over the country and in London as well. Celebrities strutted down runways and danced in music videos with his colorful creations, further promoting his brand. Just at the peak of his fashion reign, tragedy struck. After his mother passed in 2010, McQueen himself committed suicide only days later. His memorial was attended by numerous public figures included Naomi Campbell and Sarah Jessica Parker while fans around the world gave tribute to this amazing icon.

While we may wish that McQueen were still here to offer more of his sarcastic wit and amazing designs, we’ve got to say that the legacy he’s left behind has forever influenced the fashion industry. It just goes to show how determination, passion, and a little bit of controversy can go far.
