Alexander Wang is known for his elusive oversized knits, bad ass feel
and selectively pieced layers; not to mention skinny bitty models with
greasy hair, oily faces, and mass appeal. This pre-Fall 09 season we are surprised to see a more mature
side of Alexander Wang, punk painter meets dinner party a la coat jacket for one. This new side to a past
celebrated award winning designer is quite refreshing in a land where we are not trying to find Oz but
trying to find ourselves; Mr. Wang seems to be stepping outside of his leather and chain smoking box. My
only pet peeve concerning this pre-collection is the lack of bottom pieces; I am all for creativity [obviously
as I am obsessed with Alexander Mcqueen] but the repeated Spanx in lue of pants drives me nuts. CAN I
GET A TROUSER OVER HERE>? Who styled this shoot… Rachel Zoe? For more of my favorite looks see

True to the brand, leather, bomber-like jackets, cool knits, and simple pieces.
