NEW YORK, Sep. 12, 2010/ FW/—There is one collection every year that I look forward to seeing above others, and year it was Alexander Wang’s.

Set in the industrial space at Pier 94, this show draws an audience similar to most people’s most-visited sites…bloggers of likes of Terence Koh and Bryan Boy, stylists like Rachel Zoe, industry icons like Lynn Yaeger, and celebrities like M.I.A, Erin Wasson and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

The collection was totally unexpected from Wang, there wasn’t a hint of black or any hard edges to be found. But the result was a romantic and soft collection- of course, with a Wang twist.

The models’ hair was slicked back with white paint, the seemingly simple pieces would surprise you with a dash of copper paint, a lapel of sequins, or a slash exposing some skin underneath. His silhouettes were long and loose; easy to wear is the key this season.

Loose knits, sheer layers, wide-legs, and his first real print all appeared. The show was a hit, and it leaves me wondering what we can expect from Wang next season. He keeps us on our toes, that’s for certain.
