    We can assume that Alexander Wang was at least putting the final touches on his pre-fall '13 collection when he accepted the new position at Balenciaga. Whether or not the latter affected the former can't really be determined until February, but after taking the whole trajectory of Wang's collections into consideration, we think the designer is finally primed for the spaceman-meets-workingwoman sophistication of Balenciaga.
