What: Alexander Wang Collection 1
When: 3rd June, 2018
Where: Pier 17, New York
Alexander Wang presented Collection 1 in New York yesterday. Celebrities such as Anna Wintour, A$AP Ferg, Jourdan Dunn, Pusha T, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Natasha Lyonne, Nicola Peltz, Iris Apfel and Derek Blasberg and more attended the runway show.
Collection 1 is about a liberating and shimmering expanse between expressions of freedom; the Statue of Liberty and the waving flag on top of the Brooklyn Bridge. Telling a story of ‘coming to America’, the series introduces and embodies a new spirit, his home and the birthplace of Alexander Wang - New York City. Collection 1 highlights iconic American popular culture like the reinterpreted flag itself to hybridised and de-constructed garments that allude athletics, morph into rock and roll and New York punk seen in some pieces.
The collection also marks a successful collaboration between Alexander Wang and graphic artist Fergus Purcell. They've transferred neon signs of New York storefronts on to a seven-piece collection of clothing and accessories.
Brands like Oakley and Fox Racing have also collaborated with Alexander Wang on exclusive runway pieces. Adidas Originals by Alexander Wang was also shown during the show.
