Read today’s dose of chic intel right here…
Alexander Wang Invited a Robot to His Pre-Fall Show
It seems competition for #frow seating at fashion shows just got hotter. Over the weekend Alexander Wang debuted Collection 2, and he invited Sophia the robot to watch. Sophia looked futuristic decked out in Wang. Or maybe she looked futuristic because she’s a robot. Who’s to say?
Anyway, the collection itself was fantastic. You know when you flip through vintage issues of magazines from the ’80s and think “why don’t we dress like that anymore?” Well, now we can (with a modern update, of course). Wang blended everything from tweed, to lace, to leather, to denim to craft a chic wardrobe that has that oh-so-elusive effortless casual quality to it. The tailoring was perfect. Especially on the trench coats, and the blazers (for women and men) with shoulders that hung just the right amount lower than they should, for that casually oversized feel.
Wang also dropped a limited-edition capsule collection on the new e-commerce and content app, NTWRK, the day of the show.
