Alexander Wang: Fall 2016 Ready-To-Wear

Unlike Wang’s Fall 2015 collection, which was dominated by mainly black, we saw an array of contrasting colours make up his Fall 2016 collection. Pink, orange, green, army print and even turquoise made an appearance in his NYFW show on February 13th. This collection literally screamed ‘hipsteresque’ rock chick. FYI – I felt like I had woken up in London’s Brick Lane whilst watching. 

Well known to most for his bestseller ‘parental advisory’ mesh jumper as seen on celebs like Khloe Kardashian and Jourdan Dunn, Fall 2016 saw a motif of words printed across mesh tops, jumpers and hats. These included ‘Strict’, ‘Girls’, ‘Faded’ and ‘Tender’.



We saw a clash of textures in this collection, from tweed to leathers to fluffy soft knit fabrics, which added to the hipster rock chick vibe.   



Overall... I absolutely LOVED the slogan jumpers and hats, and felt as though these will be BIG come Fall/winter 2016. Will these slogan jumpers be as big as the parental advisory mesh jumpers? Hmm... We'll have to wait and see on that one. But, in the meantime I'm just gonna sit here and patiently wait for a high-street retailer to make something similar... (places palms together and gazes up to the sky)

SLAY or NAY? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
