NYFW: Alexander Wang SS16

As always I have been keeping an eye on New York Fashion Week and one show that caught my attention was Alexander Wang. I have always been a fan of his edgy, branded collections with their sporty vibe. This collection was the label's 10th anniversary and Wang pulled off a great show to mark the occasion.

Wang took inspiration from streetwear and the mundane (perhaps as a backlash to the end of his time at Balenciaga?) and embraced the chaos: There's not a single story-line, not a single type of girl..." 

One of my favourite pieces was this leather bustier with chain link straps, paired here with fraying jeans and a bucket, reinvented for the catwalk in snakeskin.

I love slip dresses, so this look caught my eye. It fits in with the pyjama dressing theme seen throughout the show (as do these gladiator slippers?) and the addition of the long camel coat makes the look elegant.NYFW new york fashion week slip camel coat

The sleepwear theme is continued, with this soft bra seen through the translucent striped top in this look. And Wang's signature military/sporty vibe is demonstrated by these trousers with the exposed zip and go-faster stripes.NYFW new york fashion week, soft bra, sheer

My last favourite look is this military jacket with fringing detail. Fishnet is used both for the top and layered over distressed denim. The high neck gives a sporty feel, whilst the accessories (those shoes!) toughen up the look.NYFW fringing military jacket fishnet

For the first time, Alexander Wang included men on the catwalk. Here are my favourite menswear looks, I particularly like the dungarees...

On the beauty front, the look was kept very natural. Perfect glowy skin, brushed out brows and big awake eyes were the focus, keeping the attention on the fashion.

And as always, Wang ended the show with his signature runway run.
