You might have caught Alexander Wang’s Fall ’11 campaign in July, when he screened his ready-to-wear promotional video on the sides of buildings throughout Manhattan. For the Fabien Baron-directed, Karl Templer-styled campaign, Wang enlisted Raquel Zimmermann to show off his cool-girl collection in an abandoned Brooklyn grain factory from the twenties. Here, Style.com has the exclusive behind-the-scenes images from the shoot before they go live on AlexanderWang.com tomorrow. If you are hoping to get your hands on the fur puffer (like we are), you can find it and all of the looks on Wang’s e-commerce site.

Affordable Balmain—a contradiction in terms? There’s no evidence to suggest that the label’s four-figure tattered tees are going anywhere, but for the slightly more cash-strapped, the company is introducing Pierre Balmain, a lower-priced, younger-skewing collection for men and women, made in partnership with Ittierre. Set to launch in the spring in 700 stores worldwide, the collection includes a mix of dresses, knitwear, leathers, and jeans (equipped with the label’s signature sparkles and studs, we hope). Your first peek is above. [Balmain]
