NYFW FALL 09: Alexander Wang, Karen Walker, Threeasfour

As usual, our boy Alexander Wang failed to disappoint. In his own words, his badass little rebel girl is growing up - this means a collection full of slick shapes, sharp tailoring, and hard black.
I love the black looks he showed and the variety of textures...
And his sparing use of white really pops - like the fur trimmed leather jacket, and the sheer asymmetrical  dress...
One of my favorite aspects of his collection is the cutouts and asymmetry - so linear and futuristic..

I was a bit underwhelmed with the overall look of Karen Walker's new collection, but some looks did stand out - mainly the jackets; lambskin trimmed, washed leather, and classic tan coats. But as this collection will be our spring one, I'm not sure how that will translate for me.
Threeasfour's collection was really intriguing - inspired by crystals. I love their use of shape, transparency and embellishment.
