His newest collection showcases models posing in sky-high platforms, in what appears to be a harmonious mirage of leather, leopard, and grommets. Wang’s work has the aura of a rich, bold wine— composed of various notes and undertones that combine to produce one sensationally cohesive statement. The collection’s satorially effortless edge makes for sensible and functional collection filled with pieces that are all hallmarks to the breed of the brand he’s been consistently curating season after season.

His garments redefine elegance without the redundancies of lace and pearls. In this way, his collection begins to tell the tale of the modern-day metropolitan muses around the world for which his clothes are catered to.
Alexander Wang’s Pre-Fall 2016 Collection is receiving rave reviews from both Vogue and Women’s Wear Daily. Its as though Wang has found his tempo once again, and editors near and far are cheering right alongside him for his revival.
