Shop the new interactive video of the Alexander Wang Spring 2015 runway show featuring cool fashion, flashy function and a baseline of comfort with an overarching theme of sporty.
The silhouettes are streamlined, sculpted to the body in athletic curves and treated with all kinds of fun, technical fabrications sprung from the language of sneakers: the barcodes from underneath the tongue decorated tailored black-and-white riffs on tuxedos. The designer uses sporty shoes as a leitmotif, reinterpreting iconic styles as clothes. High heels were inspired by the Nike Air Woven, and dresses and handbags were inspired by the Air Jordan sneaker range and the adidas Stan Smith.
The collection features a sleek romance. Goddess gowns have modular-shaped insets, while sculpted leather bodices look ready-made for gladiators of the future, though not when paired with classic cigarette pants with just a touch of contrast piping. A series of jaunty tennis whites are featured in a tech fabric perforated for breathability.
