Vote to Resurrect your Favorite Alexander Wang Look
Finally a #TBT we can get down with. After 10 years of heading his eponymous New York line, Alexander Wang is celebrating his legacy by letting the public decide which 10 iconic looks from his decade on the runway will be re-released.
Consumers can now vote on their favorite looks on the company website. With sleek dresses, leather jackets, blazers and jumpsuits in the running for reissue, chic people everywhere can find something they like from Wang’s astonishing archive.
This news could stem from reports about Wang leaving his other gig as creative director of Balenciaga. While he is currently working on the SS16 for Paris this fall, reports have suggested that his contract may not be renewed despite a massive sales growth for the European label.
High demand for his apparel has consistently followed Wang since launching his name brand in 2007. His signature slouchy, monochromatic and urban aesthetic has earned him immense critical acclaim from his fashion peers and 2 CFDA awards, as well as attracting the attention of numerous celebrities like Rihanna, Solange Knowles and Dakota Fanning. Last year’s collaboration with H&M infamously sold out within minutes of release.
Whether or not the reissue is an attempt to generate interest in Wang’s brand after Balenciaga departure rumors or simply to provide consumers with a chance to get their hands on some of his most iconic works, hype beasts will have something to look forward to in September when the looks are released. But no matter what label his clothes are released under, it’s clear people are hungry for Wang.
