Sometimes, it seems like every cool girl in New York either already owns a piece by Alexander Wang or is saving up for one. Since launching his first full collection in '07, the Parsons dropout has become the source for model-off-duty chic. His super-luxe boyish basics have the perfect amount of just-rolled-out-of-bed slouch, and you can’t walk down Crosby Street without spotting one of his much-imitated lambskin bags — the It bag of choice for the downtown trendsetting set.
Wang’s look right now is all about impeccable tailoring with sporty details: Bodycon dresses come with intricate mesh paneling, and refined knits are done in ingenious, technical fabrics that are usually confined to boring workout wear. Oh, and those impeccable Rocco bags now come in the most luscious shade of ruby red.
