Alexander Wang‘s starting point for fall 2014 is to introduces the knitwear vocabulary to Balenciaga. Wang felt that knitwear was not very present after his research so, he built a collection steeped archival concepts with his creative approach of knitwear . “Almost every single look or piece has an element or a surface or a visual or a stitch related to knit,” he said.
The fashionable Aoyama district of Tokyo, Japan, is flourishing even more with the addition of Alexander Wang‘s flagship store. A-Wang’s three-story standalone stocks menswear, womenswear and the designer’s T line, as well as special items exclusive to Tokyo.
This store comes after the growing success of the brand. It’s the 12th store open this past year.
Balenciaga has released the full fall 2013 campaign under the creative direction of Alexander Wang. Steven Klein photographed the new advertisements starring Kristen McMemany. See the whole campaign after the jump.
The innovative online retailer has worked with fashion houses including Alexander Wang, Raf Simons and Ami to create exlusive capsule collections. The buying team has worked with a handful of quite different brands to develop capsule collections that will be available only from Mr Porter.
Finally, it looks like it is not Christopher Kane, but Alexander Wang to take over Balenciaga, as several sources report today. Succeeding Nicolas Ghesquière, who has his last day at the PPR owned fashion house today, we should be hearing an official statement from Balenciaga in the following days.
