Factory Girl

NEW YORK…Taking place in the Eyebeam Atelier in West Chelsea, Alexander Wang’s Fall ’08 collection was perfectly matched to the industrial locale. While some may refer to the collection as a nod to Marc Jacob’s infamous neo-grunge look of fall ’06, Wang’s vision provided a faultless alignment of androgynous sensibility and sly femininity, nonetheless. He balanced the proportions of over-sized suit jackets and trousers, with fitted tanks, vests, and ripped stockings and leggings-as-pants for an added downtown vibe. His favorite model/muse, Erin Wasson, played stylist for the evening, helping to put forth the edgy and sexy vision that she and Wang both share and embody.
