Alex Casertano



New York: Following a well-received debut collection for F/W 10, the much anticipated S/S 11 Alex Casertano presentation didn’t disappoint. Casertano’s aesthetic reflects his arty background and an interest in exploring “materials and craft.” The Parson’s educated 27 year-old has an impressive resume, boasting design stints at fashion labels Yigal Azrouël and J. Crew, as well as experience working in the studios of respected artists like Sol Le Witt and George Condo. Casertano’s appreciation of modernist art couldn’t be more evident in his designs. Clearly influenced by the Bauhaus movement, the clothes for S/S 11 are architectural and uncomplicated, featuring angular lines and color-blocking. Consistent with Bauhaus ideals, Casertano’s designs are just as functional as they are visually attractive. Wearable and fresh, the versatile suiting, pretty tiered chevron dresses, and collaged separates will appeal to the intellectual sophisticate.
