Alexander Wang Spring 2016

STOP THE PRESSES!!! ALERT THE MEDIA !!!!


Blah Blah states that “It was also a fiendishly canny move on Wang’s part because it allowed him to create a kind of critique-resistant streetwear chaos on his catwalk.” And then there was this Reject “innovation!” The mundane is inspirational!”

On the former my eyes tell me to disagree and the latter one might say, well, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Then there is the matter of this being the 10 year anniversary of the eponymous brand which translates to  the umpteenth season of cargo pants, clumsy shoes, daisy dukes, neoprene, tee shirts, crop tops, the new  ubiquitous “delicate fruit casement”  and most of all being mistaken as  an influential collection designed by a great talent…. NOT!

These are plain old street kids clothes… the kids do it better .. which are redone for high prices aimed at those who feel the need to believe they are uber hot  wearing the latest and greatest. Better to think again! There’s hardly an original thought to be seen. Even the style of the presentation itself was done recently by Dior Homme in Paris. Yes, some of us pay attention!
