Dear Shaded Viewers,
You can count on Alexander Wang to deliver an exciting, high-energy show. His interpretation of the current athletic trend in New York was smart and powerful, balancing a tough sexiness with a playful edge. I loved his take on Hawaiian prints, which ended up looking like some sort of urban camouflage.
With their wet, curly locks and pointy white sandals, Wang's girls had a carefree attitude and confidence that felt fresh. Think Lara Croft meets graphic sportswear.
