Wang's lacquered elegance

Alexander Wang came to show his fall 2012 RTW collection
in New York with a cast of supermodels mouth-masked by
fishnet turtlenecks wearing stiff, well constructed and a bit
futuristic, almost monochromatic garments that appear to
be wearable and weatherproof because of their glossy facet.

The San Francisco-born, New York-based talented designer
who made waves ever since his knits debut collection in
2006 shrinks away from his cool downtown rap through
”a surrealistic approach to fabric manipulation” as Wang
pointed out, showing amazingly textured garments.

He came to lacquer tweeds on chesterfield coats, hooded
jackets and wool sweaters while leathers look polished and
seamless, luxuriously sculpted or stripped on pants and
mid-calf skirts. Most of the outfits seem to have a velvety
nap regardless of the gleaming or matte finish while once
again knee-high black booties play the unbridled role
of partner in crime (not to mention the boxy handbags).
