Walking around Lincoln Center this week, we've counted at least 20 girls wearing silk slips and sheer shirtdresses from recent T by Alexander Wang collections. This season, Wang gave his basics line subtle updates that echoed his main collection, with its BMX
and motocross references (those allover-floral helmets were next-level).
That translated here into sweatshirt parka ponchos, collarless polo tanks, mesh details, and chevron-shaped sheer insets that gave a sporty edge to a long sage gown with a high neckline.
While Resort experimented with saturated neon colors, Wang returned to neutrals for Spring, adding in pops of lemongrass and cantaloupe here and there. Other new additions for Spring included supersoft Tencel chambray pieces; a new, flattering matte jersey (hard to believe he hasn't used it before); and stretch-cotton-canvas looks trimmed in tonal leather that were reminiscent of pieces from the T menswear collection.
Which T design will be a street-style hit at the next cycle of fashion shows? Our bet is on the tux-inspired button-up shirt in crepe de chine and gauzy georgette with crisp French cuffs, which was paired here with comfy knit shorts.
