Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection was shown September 12, 2015 in NYFW.
For his 10th anniversary collection Alexander Wang brought out the slouchy, cool, off-duty athleisure that made him a rock star name. Wang brought back the signature looks that made him a name in the first place. Wang’s spell at Balenciaga ends in October, after less than three years as creative director. His last collection , spring/summer 2016, created for Balenciaga will be shown on October 2, in Paris Fashion Week.
Trading in last season’s gothic inspired look, the new season featured more everyday staples including denim separates, military-inspired jackets and hoodies with a graphic edge. Bold stripes, chain link details, fringe and mesh made these wardrobe staples far from minimal. Wang also experimented with evening wear inspired looks in his own way with long, flowing dresses given a street style makeover when paired with oversized coats or baseball caps.
At the end of the show and before the party, Wang showed an edgy video looking back on his career, broadcast from the backing wall. Then it was all eyes on the semi-clad, athletic pole dancers strutting their stuff.
And if we take a look at the front row we can see Lady Gaga,Mary J Blige, Steven Klein, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West.
