Where all things beautiful collide

Some designers are especially good at building a flawless brand.  Taking a clear point of view to high heights without ending up over sold and in the bargain bin of a mall department store.  Stella McCartney, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Tom Ford are some great examples of near perfect brands.  Another one without question is Alexander Wang.  As the creative lead of his namesake, its diffusion line T by Alexander Wang, and Design Director of Balenciaga, Alex knows clothes and how to build a brand by simply creating pieces we want to wear, while at the same time giving us innovative silhouettes and textiles.  One fabric that at one point was very innovative, and is now just a staple, denim was a no brainer for Wang to add to his repertoire.  Launching today on alexanderwang.com, Alex gives us three styles to try on for size, Wang 001, Wang 002, and Wang 003, which run from a slim leg with a little stretch, to a more relaxed cut and looser “boy” fit that stays pegged when rolled, and is also tapered at the ankle.  Wang’s jeans feature matte black rivets that almost disappear into the denim, and act as his signature of sorts.  Wang often wears black, and is always wearing jeans when bowing at New York and Paris fashion weeks, so this is comfortable territory for him.  Model Anna Ewers, a favorite of Wang’s, posed for the lookbook, and it appears unfortunately for me that it’s women’s only denim so far, but Alexander does have two menswear collections that I’m sure will reap the benefits of his foray into jeans soon.  So ladies that love denim, this new collection is a must have!
