Alexander Wang’s Fall Campaign Is Too Crowded and ‘Goth’ (Forum Buzz)

We’ve seen the main bulk of the new season campaigns by now, but there’s always one we forget that surfaces from nowhere and today, we finally get to see Alexander Wang‘s Fall 2015 ads. Gone from last season are the vibrant neon colors in favor of a more subdued and moody look, captured in black and white by Steven Klein. Wang welcomes back Anna Ewers as the face of his collection, who is joined by models Molly Bair, Binx Walton, Lexi Boling, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Sarah Brannon and Isabella Emmack as well as singer Alice Glass and the Japanese dance duo AyaBambi, making for an interesting cast that ultimately seems part of some trendy gothic clique.

Our feisty forum members began discussing immediately. “His usual gang plus some random chicks. He really needs to stop with it, especially with Hanne who looks awful once again. She, Isabella and Sarah are really irrelevant. The second shot is way too crowded but I quite like the first one. Still, it’s the weakest Wang campaign in seasons,” slammed anlabe32.

“I don’t like it, it looks like a group of cool girls with ugly shoes who came out into the rain and are angry now,” shared an unimpressed dcmaike.

Also not feeling it was Benn98: “Yikes, I’m not a fan. It’s too over the top, fashion models trying to be goth while having only a vague idea what it’s about.”

“I don’t like it, they tried to be so goth, tough and cool but they failed and all look… dead? The anger they tried to show looks so fake and silly in a way. And it’s too crowded, the cast is so random,” announced perhydrol

HeatherAnne was far from overjoyed as she deemed the campaign, “So cheesy!”
