About the designer

While studying at Parsons in New York, Alexander Wang launched his own label in 2005. Seven years later, he became creative director of Balenciaga. In July 2015, the house announced it would not be renewing the Taiwanese-American designer’s contract.

In the meantime, Wang had debuted his first runway collection in 2007 at New York Fashion Week. He presented a women’s ready-to-wear collection consisting of knitwear, oversized T-shirts and leather blazers. From then on, his looks have been a luxury take on athleisure wear combined with an injection of urban cool. In 2008, he created an accessories line, for which he received the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award. The following year Wang won the Swiss Textiles award and was announced Swarovski Womenswear Designer of the Year. During the same year, he launched T by Alexander Wang, a secondary line for men and women. 2011 was another successful year for the young designer, he opened his first boutique and created his first menswear line under the Alexander Wang label. The success of his signature bags such as the ‘Rockie’ has contributed to his fashion fame.

Collection spring/summer 2018

Welcome to #Wangfest, where fashion’s superstars strut from a neon-lit party bus on to a makeshift street runway with feather tiaras and enviable after-hour wardrobes. The Alexander Wang spring/summer 2018 collection showcases the designer’s streetwear sensibility with ripped denim, contemporized sportswear staples and effortless layering. The New York designer's seductive shapes played on power shoulders and the dimensions of a menswear jacket; worn with arms tied around the waist or doubling as a dress or skirt wrapped around the body. The collection's makeshift appeal was made even more clear by the combination of slouchy sweaters, slip tops, leather and studs; as though the models went straight from their desks into downtown and threw on whatever they found on the way. With such style and energy, who wouldn't want a Wangover once in a while?
