For me, fashion month kicks off not with the first show calendar tells us, or the parties or the street style scene; but with the new collection of Alexander Wang. It is now, undisputedly, one of the most important shows of NYFW and always a great source for trend forecasting. Besides signature cocoon shapes, loose fits and leather domination; Wang added frilly crop tops (Carrie Bradshaw is crying somewhere), single button granny cardigans, blue PJ stripes, origami trousers and of course a new patent fabric on his resume (and our shopping lists).
Now that E.L. James has very unfortunately announced the official cast of the movie, it’s safe for me to say that A.Wang S/S 2014 collection is my new favourite 50 shades of grey.
