Alexander Wang Resort 2011 - Street Chic

 Alexander Wang is in the midst of expansion - and even though his resort collection was small, each piece was flawless, each as desirable as the next - using his usual mix of street cool, models wore chunky knits teamed with strong masculine tailoring, and the pallette was cool - with grey, wine and contrasting black and white prevailing throughout.

Wang said in a statement that went with the presentation:
"We've been feeling urban streetwear for a while. I wanted to take this in a direction that felt more unknown to us." 
Despite being "unknown" there is still plenty of what makes his designs unique on offer - statement slouchy knitwear, cropped tops, and starchy, fitted pieces, all clearly inspired by a mix of what you'd find in thrift shops, vintage pieces and even menswear.

Outerwear dominated this collection, with buttoned shirts, capes which were seamlessly blending into a trench design, and chunky knit cardigans gave the overall look a street ready vibe, while other pieces played with different textures, similar to his other collections - leather juxtaposed with shiny dark glasses and thick wools.

Alexander Wang has yet again proved that he is more then worthy of the hype surrounding him - and his plans for expansion include a "basics range" comprised of simple blouses, shirts and trousers. He will also soon open a New York boutique before the end of 2010.
