|Liberty Ross at Alexander Wang's Spring/Summer 2013 Runway|
Tough. Graphic. Urban. Alexander Wang gave once again a breathtaking presentation. There was not a single piece that did not describe the first three words. Everything starting from the setting, and the music, to the models wearing the outfits, mixed as well as a good old martini garnished with olives. Patterns such as croc, zebra, giraffe, and snake skin were very well present at this show. The method of “applying them to the garments, but in an abstract way through embroidery,” as Alexander pointed, was a clean tactic that separated him from other designers.

The whole point of this collection was of “creating this tension between structure and solidity,” which was perfectly executed. The first model wore a black jacket paired with retro shorts that looked so stunning with high knee boots that seemed as if they were glued on to the models legs. The interpretation that Wang took from the men’s inspired shirts was so sick, that it made the models look much sexier. Leather was introduced in a form as Wang recalled “dissected.” The patterns used for each garment, top and bottom, were like no other seen before in New York. The white parka Fei Fei Sun wore on the runway (the dissected dress, heels, and of course knitted bag complimented everything so well) became a dream every street style girl should seek after.

As the show progressed, the rest of the outfits seemed to separate in a very interesting way. The metallic and white/black t-shirts ended up making a regular girl’s t-shirt look so boring. For evening, Wang created an “illusion of the clothes floating on the body.” Any men would wish his woman’s new little black dress could become the one Jac wore on the runway, or why not go all the way to the one Erin Wasson wore (although lets not forget the beautiful gray dress as well).

Even though at Alexander’s finale there are small surprises, this summer collection he presented, gave us a huge surprise. We could say he crowned himself as the emperor of sexy fashion technology. Why?...…. Glowing dresses. If we could honestly describe this collection in one word, well two, it would be the following: Urban sexy.
