After a season sans black, it looks as if Alexander Wang has fallen in love with the dark pigment all over again for his fall 2011 collection. Besides a moodier palette for the autumn, Wang also played with sheer materials and fur accents even on sunglasses. Experimenting with shapes, wide capes and voluminous jackets made an appearance on the runway for a return to his dark roots this season.
Alexander Wang releases his final image piece for the spring 2011 season starring the dynamic Aymeline Valade photographed by Craig McDean.
T by Alexander Wang’s spring 2011 campaign is set to hit the streets of lower Manhattan starting February 7, and here is a look at the advertisements starring Ashley Smith and American DJ, Diplo. Lensed by Daniel Jackson and styled by Alastair McKimm, the duo wears the T line’s laid-back and relaxed looks available on Alexander Wang’s online store now.
Releasing his first print campaign with the spring 2011 season, Alexander Wang taps Aymeline Valade for a dramatic shot keeping in the spirit of the runway show. Photographed by Craig McDean and with creative direction by Fabien Baron, the four image campaign is an exclusive to Interview Magazine’s March issue. (WWD)
The youthfully relaxed aesthetic of Alexander Wang’s pre-fall line is contrasted by a no fuss nature in the form of a monochromatic color palette and severe shapes. Edgy yet sleek, the Wang woman looks ready to take on the urban jungle for pre-fall.
Moving away from his usual color scheme of moody black and dark gray hues, Alexander Wang brings light and looseness to his spring 2011 collection with the theme of a construction job gone awry. Models walked down the runway with clumps of white in their hair in addition to coveralls and sack dresses covered with splashes of color and metallic. The accessories also replicated the collection’s construction theme–handbags were exchanged for modified tool bags and necklaces consisted of thick chain links. With no black in sight, Wang successfully took his line in a new direction for the spring season and beyond.
Going viral for his mainline collection, Alexander Wang launched its fall 2010 inspiration video last week featuring Abbey Lee Kershaw filmed by Craig McDean. Likewise, the campaign images are stills from the film which was shot in an abandoned New York City building. With art direction by Fabien Baron and styling by Karl Templer, the video and images bring together the unique elements of wind, home, movement and stillness.
