New York: Leave it up to Alexander Wang to create an all night event – well, almost. Models boarded the party bus and along with a convoy of Ram trucks made pit stop presentations through the streets of Manhattan. From Lafayette and Center streets to their final destination, Bushwick, Brooklyn, the ‘Wangfest’ party sashayed with abounding energy.

But away from the street party, Wang’s collection was rife with some clear directional pieces for his loyal crowd. Known for his streetwise cool, Wang offered denim cutoffs layered over leather leggings, deconstructed jeans and off-shoulder shirts that will be an instant hit worn with a satin camisole or sports bra. Wang’s tailoring also came reinterpreted, in particular, a zip front jacket with coordinating trousers and, like many other pieces, artfully tied around the waist with sleeves.

There were abbreviated slinky satin numbers that suited the mood of the evening, evoking a sexy unraveled appeal and of course, the headgear, with words such as ‘Party Animal’ and ‘Wangover’ shouted out his girls were definitely off to a party, and perfect social media fodder. –Lizzy Bowring
