Alexander Wang AW14

Robo-warriors encircle an industrial scene in leather laser cut coats and shield-like boots

Fashion Show

Initial reaction:

Robo-warriors dispatched to photograph remote locations (like the depths of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where the show was held). The show opened with crashes of thunder and lightning, which lit up a structure made from air ducts. For the finale, models stood forward-facing on a rotating wheel that spun them.

Highlights:

Intricate leather cut-out coats dusted with bright pigment, ultra modern over-the-knee riding boots, neon pop collars, multi-pocketed safari vests and hair pressed flat to look like a gentleman's combover. Across the board, designers are bringing depth and surprise to all-around comfort. What could be better?

Location, location, location:

Guests mused that Uber must have paid Alexander Wang to hold his show in such a remote location. Then again, Brooklyn is the new Manhattan. Though Alexander Wang is dividing his time in Paris, his brand is 100 percent New York. 

The anti-it-bag:

Borrowed from the National Geographic team, or perhaps observed on the shoulder of Cass Bird, the standout accessory of the show was a camera bag with a hook for a water bottle. 

Scene:

Bryan Boy in a teddy bear suit. With ears. Relatively fewer musical talents in the audience. Flasks of whiskey embossed with #AWBK. An hour-long traffic jam in the parking lot post-show.
