A bold fusion inspired skate goth aesthetic runs through the collection like a dark wave of insurrection
Alexander Wang’s rebellious spirit is evident in his pre-fall collection for 2016. Following in the direction on which he embarked on for Pre-Fall 2015 his collection for 2016 is a step even further to the puck rock left. A bold fusion inspired skate goth aesthetic runs through the collection like a dark wave of insurrection. The bondage elements are bolder this time around and play happily alongside the more approachable checkered print pattern found in a number of pieces. Hemlines run the gamut from micro minis to floor length with unexpected detailing like frayed edges, grommet boarders and peak-a-boo cutouts. Animal print also has a moment in this lineup with a standout classic leopard print coat that is effortlessly paired with a street cred ski hat and pencil skirt in a casually edgy vibe. Satin bomber jackets, traditional trenches and a Chanelesque tweed blazer balance nicely with the overtly not for the office pieces in a combined effort of gorgeous defiance.
