Alexander Wang Fall 2017 Collection is For the Goth Party Girl in Love with Black. New York Fashion Week.
Alexander Wang sure does know how to throw a party. Remember last year’s hoedown? However, this year the designer decides to channel all of his energy into his collection instead. At least that’s what he told the press. This didn’t stop Wang’s rather rambunctious group of fashion insiders and celebrities from bringing the party to RKO Hamilton theatre. However, that fact was fine fine with Wang. It’s what he was planning all along.
The vibe was electric and the bass was thumping as the first model appears on the Alexander Wang Fall 2017 runway. She’s wearing head-to-toe black, not surprising to see coming from Wang. The next nine looks appear. Dresses, trench coats, leggings, and jumpsuits all cut with that signature Alexander Wang symmetry. For a moment, we almost forget that each of these looks is black as well. Then suddenly, a bit of light appears in the form of a black and white tartan trench canvasing a trench coat. The remainder of Wang’s collection progresses in the same manner consisting of completely black looks peppered with the occasional black and white stripe or check.
While color was stagnant, Wang worked wonders with silhouettes. Who knew that there were so many different ways to wear black. From basics like skinny trousers and leather leggings to embellished figure skating inspired tops. The collection also offered updates on the black dress. Take for example the low neckline seen on a silky above the knee dress and the sheer mesh material seen on short mini-dresses. Unlike his past few Seasons, we weren’t as wow-ed by accessories. Perhaps because each item was also all black. For footwear, Wang made a strong case for simple boots and medium heels all in a patent or matte black finish. Albeit, there was a bit of sparkle seen in a handful on small handbags.
In the end, Wang did manage to bring the party. We did see Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid on the runway, after all. More importantly, however, he delivered a collection that Wang girls everywhere would love. From the college fashionistas to the city girls in love with street style, he appealed to all. And for the grown up goth party girl in love with black, if you had feelings this would be pure euphoria.
