Injecting Sex into Sport; Alexander Wang


At the end of the day presentation is everything.

Alexander Wang is managing an empire and managing it well. At one point it was no doubt a cult but with this past year's expansion, it's safe to say that his following and assets have transcended the term.

As looks stomped down the runway for his Spring 2013 offerings, it became clear that lack of shape in no way dampens sex appeal. With a couple of careful and precise slices of a razor - a tactic he used back in the Fall 2011 collection as well - Wang cements looks in a strong, sexy vibe, providing peeks at slivers of flesh. Cutouts too are quickly becoming a thing again.

Why this sports luxe gone sexy visage was so appealing I'm not quite sure.  At times it brought back thoughts of that Givenchy collection: Fall 2011 with those cat eyes. The prints weren't there though, instead silhouettes seemed very Celine; oh so clean.

And of course how could it be Alexander Wang with out some to die for piece? This season there were the visors! Sure, twitter tells the story of garments that glow in the dark but less I'm going to be living in a rave for the season, I'd much rather the sleek headgear.
