LB Showroom: Mr. Wang Adds On - Not Bad

Alexander Wang has been considered one of the most well put together "ready-to-wear" brands that presents at Fashion week and I pretty much have to agree. With his accolades and success being in order he has decided to add and make a few changes to his "simple" yet thriving empire.
Parting ways with his creative director (Erin Wasson) of two years, Wang picked up Alastair McKimm to style his Spring 2009 collection in place of Wasson. Alexander promises a newer and more FUN line for 2009.

"There will be lots of color and dresses, an athletic-meets-“Miami Vice” vibe, lace patterns inspired by sweat stains, and runway hats by milliner Albertus Swanepoel that look like a mix between swim caps and “corseted do-rags". Wang explained.

Also with the change up he is implementing a tee-shirt line (T by Alexander Wang) and his very first shoe line. Tanks to T-shirt dresses will range from ($28-$40 wholesale) in colors ranging from whites and gray to lavender, chartreuse and cerulean, all in Alex's signature slouchy and over-sized style. The shoes give me a very dark and racy feel that I feel would complement his additions very well. There are five styles to begin with ranging from $125 to $250 wholesale. And apparently Mr. Wang used actual body piercings on the shoes as visuals! Make sure that you're on the look out for Alexander Wang at Fashion Week this year!
