If you’re looking for a new travel wardrobe that masters the technique of being pristinely filthy look no further than Alexander Wang’s Spring/ Summer 2015 collection. Wang stitched together a hard-edged contemporary dark look for SS15, tapping into the season’s already ubiquitous fabric-innovation. Although unlike many of his peers, Wang used cutting edge fabric to establish a flawlessly mucky look.
As for the clothes? He explored the idea of loosely tailored garments inspired by climbing, hiking and transportation — a pair of cargo pants with exposed pockets, a backpack, a wide-cut dress shirt, and a parka featuring D-rings and webbing details. The sportif-chic lineup embraced color blocking as black, burgundy and navy saturated the lineup. The cleverest item took form in the avant-garde nineties tinged technical outerwear complete with a spatter pattern that was sprinkled throughout the collection.
Alongside the painstakingly constructed, filth adoring, travel friendly looks, Wang’s signature philosophy was shown with slim utility pants, lengthened shorts, digital tie-dye-print knitwear, hybrid sleek backpacks, and zip-front boots and classic bomber jackets with a tire-like surface.
