Appropriate during a time of economic downturn, minimalism was the prevailing trend at the showing of Alexander Wang’s Fall 2009 collection. The runway was abound with black, fitted blazers and body hugging dresses. A different approach from Wang’s cutout sweater and Spring 2009 collection, black and white were the dominant colors on this runway, sharing the limelight with a tweed-like pattern (black and white also, of course) that one model rocked head-to-toe . . . even on her feet!
Wang’s Fall ’09 runway also saw liquid leggings, as seen on the likes of Victoria Beckham, as well as heeled motorcycle boots for a complete rocker chic look. One recent Hollywood trend that made the runway – as spotted on Shenae Grimes and in Lindsay Lohan’s leggings line 6126 – was that of shredded leggings, although Alexander Wang’s version was much cleaner and more structured. And in true Alexander Wang style, models rocked a cutout dress as well as frocks detailed with sheer tulle.
Even though the hues remained subdued on this runway, Alexander Wang managed to create a killer collection once again. I doubt that in no time we’ll see socialites and celebrities rocking the designer’s one-shouldered dresses and belted blazers – perfect for wearing out on those crisp fall nights.
