Alexander Wang | New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012

Alexander Wang is such a genius – As he presented his Spring/Summer 2012 collection yesterday at New York Fashion Week, unlike other designers who had earlier taken a bold take on athletic or sporty themes, Wang subtly fused the theme with his already upscale street-wear aesthetic, and goes for inspiration found on the BMX, Motocross and NASCAR tracks.  In opening, female models with their hands tucked into the pockets of mesh pants wore constantly appearing mesh tops which were under-layered with what seemed to be colored shirts. Alexander then displayed how he creatively applied floral patterns to his amazing  street-wear, showing a great deal of body-hugging dresses, rompers and jumpsuits; all having their little touch of mesh and some topped off with a biker helmet as an accessory.  Tribal prints took their place as stadium maps, atop the most gorgeous of pieces including jersey jumpsuits and sheer jerseys. As it related to shoes, all the models wore chic pointed-toe pumps, which came in black and white.  This is what I call a refreshing collection, something new, innovative and inspiring. Seems like next season, mesh will be a huge trend, especially since Dolce & Gabbana already dished the male counterparts to the mesh trend in Milan earlier this season. Check out my collection favorites below, along with all photos from the show.
