New York: Alexander Wang continues to raise the bar in innovative materials and styling and this Spring collection was no exception. Wang reinterpreted the technical aspect of sport shoes vis a vis Nike, Adidas, and Stan Smiths as his leitmotif and reimagined them into body con dresses, high heeled pumps and sporty accessories. Nike’s familiar Flyknits were interpreted as sylph-like body-con dresses and the high-waisted slim-line pants paired with fitted tees and plissé camis is sure to become one of the must have silhouettes for the season. Wang’s electric colors from his last collection continued and vibrated in intensity – from cobalt to lime and lemon all played back against black and white. Any die hard fashionista will be donning her sneakers and racing to be the first to wear these sculpted, streamlined silhouettes. – Lizzy Bowring
