Resort 2010: Alexander Wang

Loving Alexander Wang's new resort collection. He has picked up that riff on athletic-wear that he started in Spring - same goes for denim (which he always amazes me with). Wang plays with the "All American" sportswear classics in this collection. Love the (pre-fringe) Abbey Lee in the lookbook too - she only seems to get more and more gorgeous. The natural hair and beauty look used is stunning too.

I'm obsessed with grey marle at the moment, and there's a ton of it here. Great takes on a fabric that is so typically associated with sportswear/trackpants/etc - so there s an almost tongue in cheek juxtaposition of fabric with design. Check out the long, goddess dress in the center! I would seriously live in the poncho/cape/hoodie hybrid on the left.
Im pretty much dying for one of these diamond-cutout sweaters. Amazingly graphic yey would be super wearable and trans-seasonal. Nearly love them as much as the spring jumper - this one I would give my first born for. No joke.
As usual, his denim pieces are to die for. Quirky, badass twists on iconic garments - dungarees?! Yes!! Speaking of glassic garments, I'm seriously coveting that refined bomber/varsity jacket in the centre. Looks like grey marle and tan suede. Heaven.
