NYFW FALL '12 + ALEXANDER WANG
Forget the references to NASCAR racing, BMX biking, and sports in his spring collection. Put aside categorizing perceptions about young, hip, contemporary wear. This fall, Alexander Wang broke out of any boundaries that might relegate him to the notional status of a junior-league champion of a fashion subset. His show on Saturday was a breakthrough: a collection with all the distinctions of proper, strong, and innovative design on a level of maturity which had the audience craning forward, engaged and curious from first look to last.
