The spring 2017 collection of Alexander Wang was delightful and young and was lightly inspired by the surfculture. Youth culture and irreverence are key tenets of his brand and this time he choose fresh material and handled it with the balance of irony, relevance and good design. t Rash guards were interpreted into slinky dresses with neon seams. A black bikini top laced around the torso was worn over a sequin skirt that wrapped like a beach towel. A cropped fluorescent-pink sweatshirt with a palm tree print bore the phrase “mind detergent.” Wang also used a cliché Eighties-Nineties thorny tattoo into a print, and gave the ultimate symbol of slacker culture — the bathrobe — a witty upscale treatment in shaved mink. Flat sandals had straps that looked like surfboard ankle leashes and necklaces looked like lifeguard whistles.
Looks like Wang caught the perfect wave this season.
