It's #NYFW: Alexander Wang Fall 2017

"The RKO Hamilton Theater is a fabulous wreck up on the corner of Broadway and 146th Street, way, way out of range of most Fashion Week goings-on. It was packed to the peeling rafters for Alexander Wang’s show tonight anyway, even without the promise of an after-party. Wang played up the no after-party thing; the phrase was stamped across the T-shirt he wore to take his running bow, and it crawled up the sheer stockings some of the models wore. This must’ve been meant ironically because his collection, which was almost exclusively black, was very much in the key of party girl. He opened with tailoring, splicing traditional suiting fabrics with sweatshirting to take the starch out. But from there he moved swiftly on to catsuits, leather pants, shorts, stretch denim with bold silver button-flys, and chain mail tees. Westernwear is a developing Fall trend, turning up first at Calvin Klein yesterday, and here at Wang in the form of fringed shirts and jackets. He also used ball studding and rhinestones as accents." -
