The Alexander Wang Fall 2018 RTW collection was presented in a restrained and intimate setting on the 21st floor of 4 Times Square in an empty office high above the city, where Wang began his career. Guests were ushered to a dimly lit single row of seating in the cubicles of the fictional AWG headquarters.
“I’m blessed and honored to work with such incredible, smart, powerful women,” he said. “It felt timely to do a collection that reflects a different part of my life, everyone knows the partying me, but I actually go to work more than I party.”
The collection explored a timely redefinition of femininity. This evolved sensibility twisted Wang’s codes of modern dressing; evoking tension between empowerment and sensuality. “CEO 2018” was emblazoned in silver across the chest of a button-down and picked out in rhinestones on the upper thigh of sheer black hose, a flip of the script from two years ago when Wang’s tights were stitched with the word girls. There was also an even less subtle Platinum Card motif.
