Alexander Wang Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear New York FW2013
Alexander Wang was looking for something different in his fall 2013 collection. No neoprene, no modern techno-fabrics. Instead he went for the natural, fuzzy and warm: mohair, alpaca, astrakhan and anything that reminded him of hair. The result was an interesting and even edgy collection. Lots of outerwear of course with brushed denim and knit skirts. Romy coats were shaped by thick folds whether exaggerated lapels or tucks that created a rounded shoulder and tapered sleeve. Many of the coats were dark and sometimes even aggressive, but beautiful too. Wang handled the volume and fabric density with elegance. Wang’s other major element was the tuxedo in satin.
