He's come undone. The element of surprise in Alexander Wang's Pre-Fall collection was its emphasis on deconstruction, and his new T
lineup echoed that same theme, with many pieces featuring raw edges, fringe details, and unfinished seams. Boxy jackets and casual five-pocket trousers cut from a soft twill that resembled denim were artfully frayed around the pockets and hemlines, while ribbed turtleneck sweaters looked already well-worn. But it wasn't all distressed goods here. Sporty windbreakers and wide-leg track pants came in a water-resistant, laminated French terry that offered a techy contrast to the rest of the mix. Other highlights included stretchy, pleated knit rompers, bonded-leather miniskirts, bralet tops (in unexpected hues like marigold and iris), and transitional outerwear. Among the standouts in the latter category were two-face bomber jackets—one half done in sturdy sweatshirt material and the other in pebbled leather—as well as a series of quintessential grainy leather Perfectos that looked lightweight enough to wear during those early-summer months when this delivery hits stores.
