Alexander Wang Fall 2011 Runway Review

With a high-profile spread in the current issue of New York Magazine, GQ’s best new menswear designer win in tow, and the upcoming opening of his first stand-alone store, Alexander Wang is riding high, and it showed, with what is widely being considered one of his best collections to date.

For Fall 2011 the designer showed a neutral, mostly black, collection of street-smart, chic daywear. Touches of Kanye West-esque decadence appeared via fur trimmed separates and accessories like fur trimmed sunglasses and shoes topped with fur poufs, but that’s not to say that the collection wasn’t wholly wearable in its tough-luxe approach.

Chic roomy jackets, cozy coats, chunky wide collar sweaters, oversized blazers, tuxedo pants (and a tuxedo jacket with fur sleeves), dresses with floating pieces of fabric trailing behind, and even some ponchos all made their way down the runway and clearly pointed to, as Wang told WWD, pushing the language of the brand further.
