The logo mania and the wordy statements are officially back, thank to among others the rather genius designer and our New York Fashion Week-crush Alexander Wang. Wang told style.com about his nostalgic references with the logo prints as he feels for the time when “fashion was really fun, when there was wit and humor, and it wasn’t so serious.” The in-your-face aspect of the logos and massive too-cool-to-care edge of the collection felt like Wang’s attempt to reconnect with the streets; the streets of New York City. The collection allowed to show much of the skin such as long legs walking beneath pleated skirts and short shorts, or some bare flash of midriffs being uncovered by crop-tops. The designer opted for a softer colour palette for the Spring/Summer 2014 season including pale blues, greys and black&white combinations applied on the laser-cut leathers and soft cottons, which he presented buttoned at the neck with matching boxer shorts; yet achieved a proper street style love affair.
What’s your favourite accessories-type, ladies; shoes, jewellery or bags? Either of them, you’ll probably turn out to be a bag-lover as you discover the brand new ‘Le Dix’ model from Balenciaga. The dark-toned Calfskin Cartable bag is the prettiest piece of Alexander Wang’s first handbag collection for the Parisian label. ‘The name, which is French for ten, alludes to the fashion house’s original address at 10 Avenue George V and the handbag having the ‘perfect ten’ in terms of craftsmanship.’ The beautifully structured, minimalist piece of the line of satchels is the perfect choice for the ladylike-but-modern woman, who wants simple yet functional quality in her wardrobe. I’m sure that these bags will not fail to toy with your heart however the trick is that some of us got used to the Balenciaga-like edgy glam, so decide it on your own whether Alexander’s aesthetic isn’t too simplistic and minimalistic. As for us, we couldn’t resist wearing it! What about you? PS The video was shot by Toby McFarlan Pond under the artistic direction of Wang to a song titled ‘Light Foot’ by Terry Devine-King.
