I am a sucker for black clothes and these jackets are my idea of heaven. I love the quirky fur detail around the collar and sleeves and can totally see these being ripped off on the high street, they even make the colourful trousers appealing! It's grunge - Wang style.
Sheer is a fabric for the brave - you either need to be a goddess at layering or just have the body of a goddess to successfully pull it off. These super gorgeous tops make the idea of wearing sheer less American Apparel and more, well Alexander Wang. I also think the trousers are super - they really remind me of something Aitor Throup would do which is never a bad thing.
Again, these jackets are to-die-for - how amazing is Wang's use of silk and wool?! I think there's something super elegant about combining unusual fabrics and he's got it down to perfection. I love how this collection is very elegant and contemporary but at the same time referencing everything that was brilliant about the 90s; it makes me really quite excited for the next couple of weeks, anyone else?
What do you think of Alexander Wang's AW11 collection and have you seen any outstanding shows so far?
