Alexander Wang Fall Winter 2013

Normally when a new creative director is hired for an old brand, they bring their own signature to the collections. But in this case it looks like Alexander Wang has taken the Balenciaga aesthetic and applied it to his brand. Which is weird, and somewhat disturbing. But otherwise, this is a gorgeous collection. If you ignore the silly fur mittens, then it is all about fantastic coats, beautiful knits, and a ton of bold draping in varying shades of grey. The whole thing looks very cosy and expensive, exactly what we all want to be wearing in the winter.

I love…

a gorgeous dropped waist coat. But those mittens are ridiculous.

another amazing coat. With another pair of stupid mittens.

seriously cosy knits. But please, not worn with socks and flats.

the beautiful draping on this coat dress.

I loathe…

that this looks very Balenciaga, which is confusing.

    …the fur mittens are from Ghesquiere’s Pre-Fall 2009 collection. Strange indeed.
