I have had a love/hate relationship with Alexander Wang for a few seasons now. I kinda like his Downtown girl and I’m kinda meh at the same time. More so when it was announced he’d be taking the creative helm at favourite of mine Balenciaga. I asked myself “How could Balenciaga fall to this man I didn’t trust?” Well now I know. I’m gonna go ahead and say it. I’m on Team Wang now y’all! I love this gaysha, his fierce locks and what he did for Fall/Winter 2013. Boxing chic meets New York youth meets a few Cristóbalisms from Balenciaga. Result: Wang heart attack. I love the fur mittens, the sharp leather, the bags (oh the bags!) and just about everything else. Commerce meets fashion in perfect harmony – this man is a force to be reckoned with. And for the first time I am actually looking forward to the Wang chapter in the Balenciaga history. Check out my favourite looks and the runway video after the jump!
