Alexander Wang’s First Campaign Video
Alexander Wang assembled a crack team for his first-ever women’s ready-to-wear campaign video for his Wall Street-inspired Fall collection, which premieres on his Web site and ours, among others, today. Craig McDean was behind the camera, Fabien Baron was in the creative director’s seat, and Karl Templer styled. Orlando Pita and Mark Carrasquillo did Abbey Lee Kershaw’s hair and makeup. The setting, too—a now deserted New York City hotel—is compelling. “We’re always striving to communicate the frame of mind behind the collection, whether it’s through our show or imagery, but this season we got to delve much deeper,” Wang told us. “And with the help of an incredibly gifted team—Abbey, Craig, Fabien, and Karl—my inspiration for Fall ’10 unfolds in a raw and visually arresting dreamscape.” It doesn’t look like Wall Street to us, but we’re with him re: “raw and visually arresting.” Enjoy.
