#New York catwalk view: 'speedy' biker suits and 'wet' scuba impressions at Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang has received already many reviews since he started with women's wear in 2007 - probably because he creates each season unexpected new looks. Last year in September 2010, journalists had to change their view on New York's 'prince of downtown darkness' after Wang presented for SS2011 work wear interpretations of overalls, pants and dresses in soft, very clean tones of white, metallic-green, saffron, and bronze.
Now, Alexander Wang's SS2012 surprises again - which makes his work currently one of the most bespoken online. Sportive knee-length (and shorter) trousers perfectly designed for biking, leather rucksacks (some of the online writers really go into rhapsodies about the bags), suits like for a race-car driver with colorful dynamic patterns that remember tribal Native American culture, tops that look like inspired by a diver's vest, models with wet hair and motor sport helmets accomplish the impression of one of the 'speediest' collections that were shown during New York Fashion Week in September 2011.
California born in New York living designer Alexander Wang (studied at Parsons The New School for Design, NY) is awarded with the Vogue/CFDA Fund (2008) and the CFDA Swarovksi Women’s Wear Designer of the Year (2008).
