Alexander Wang Debuts at Balenciaga: Disappointing or Amazing?

Balenciaga's Autumn/Winter 2013 show was definitely the most anticipated of the season. Alexander Wang promised a down-sized show and delivered on that, with just 35 looks to show what his vision for the label would be. All thoughts of Nicolas Ghesquière flew out of the window (he's now entered designer limbo where Hannah MacGibbon welcomes you with tea and crumpets upon arrival), as Wang's first look debuted: a black cape style coat with fur shoulders teamed with slim trousers and simple black boots - a few silver and white accents completed the look. And thus, the tone was set. 

The entirely monochrome collection dipped lightly into the archives, but with a Wang style twist: subtle sculptural shapes, a splash of print and futuristic cuts all looked strongly modern - but was it refined, or too restrained?
