I have to admit, Alexander Wang’s Prefall 2010 collection isn’t one that makes me run around screaming in ecstasy, declaring my undying love for him.
I’m not saying that I didn’t like it, instead I take a look at my existing wardrobe and think of all the wonderful looks I could create to mimic this collection. In a way, this collection is ingenious taking in a lot of the existing trends and reworking it, a change in the fabric at the waist sees the boyfriend blazer being given a new lease of life. I see the Goddess dresses’ hemline increased , giving it a more classy look without compensating sexiness. I see so much opportunities for mixing and matching.
For example, the above look can be easily replicated with a mesh dress from American Apparel and paired with a neat shift dress you have in your wardrobe right now.
This collection if you ask me, is displaying his former experience in styling, since he has already fully displayed his talents as a fashion designer. Revisiting the current street style trends, he managed to conjure up an even more interesting mix just as we were beginning to decide if we should ditch those boyfriend blazers and goddess dresses. It definitely makes me take a second look at my existing wardrobe before deciding if my clothes are too dated or out of fashion.
One thing for sure, I’m keeping my boyfriend blazer.
