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.
