When he designed his Resort collection, Alexander Wang was thinking of "a girl who's living on a motorboat, hanging her clothes to dry on the deck." Sounds like she could be related to his perennial downtown muse, as embodied by co-conspirator Erin Wasson. And in fact, Wasson may be one of the select few able to pull off the hole-ridden thermal onesie, shown here with a fringe-collared blazer or a trapeze tee. Thankfully, Wang's insouciance also came in more polished form: Standouts included a graphite silk sweatshirt with a zipped back and a kimono-style jacket belted over a wide silk trouser.
