It’s baffling how Alexander Wang is able to keep such a momentum with his projects and collaborations. He currently designs his namesake line for men, women, home and “objects”, his T by Alexander Wang line, Balenciaga and various other collaborations, from Beats by Dre to H&M. His collection with H&M was hugely successful, from the star studded fashion show filled with celebrities and instagram royalty to a complete instagram feed take over leading up to the launch (Remember the editorial we did with Randa Salloum of The-Unprecedented [ Look 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 and video ].
His latest venture could potentially be one of his biggest yet, with a foray into one of the largest closet staples, denim. This denim capsule currently has 3 styles a slim leg with very little stretch, a relaxed fit, and a “boy” cut. The price point is very fair compared to the rest of the market, ranging in price from $225-$295.
Check out the lookbook below as well as the campaign. Shop the collection on AlexanderWang.com or at his flagship store 103 Grand street in NY.
He also just released the accompanying campaign featuring one of his favourite models, a nude Anna Ewers. The ad was shot by Steven Klein, and boasts very strong imagery.
The second image from the ad is NSFW, and causing quite a buzz online with polarizing reviews. Personally, I feel it’s a strong image you won’t soon forget nor stop talking about.
