Alice Glass walks in Alexander Wang’s weed-inspired show

The ex Crystal Castles frontwoman and Wang campaign girl took to the runway for the marijuana leaf-covered collection

Just last week, Alexander Wang offered fans a sneak peak of his upcoming SS16 campaign, previewing a series of polaroids of the muses who would be starring in it. One such muse was Alice Glass, the Canadian musician best known as one half of synth duo Crystal Castles. But that wasn’t all the two have been working on.

Tonight in New York, Glass took to the runway as a model in Wang’s AW16 show, for a collection that mixed the see-through tees and anti-authoritarian attitude of the #freethenipple movement with weed leaf and pole dancer motifs. Models donned beanies, hoodies and fuzzy tops all emblazoned with words like ‘strict’ and ‘tender’, strutting down the runway in punkish tights and studded shoes. As for Glass, she wore a black mohair sweater, with hair complete with her trademark short fringe.

This wasn’t the first time the musician and designer have collaborated – back in AW15, she appeared in his heavy-metal inspired campaign alongside Molly Bair, Binx Walton and Japanese dance duo Ayabambi.

According to The Fashion Law, the show also played host to a new song starring both M.I.A. and K-Pop superstar G-Dragon, with Wang adding a tribute to the artist in the model that opened the show – her hair chopped into a bright orange cut like the musician’s. Stay tuned for backstage images from the show.
