SCENE : alexander wang spring 2012

Wet hair and slept-in liner combined to create a seemingly post-apocalyptic grunge scene on the runway for Alexander Wang’s Spring 2012 collection. As is his way, Wang once again elevated effortless street style to elegance with an unusually body-con collection of sportswear for Spring. Models decked out in laser cut racing suits with exotic textures, zippers and (gasp) color, showed a very downtown meets NASCAR look on the runway over the weekend. “What’s chicer than wearing wet hair out the door with really amazing clothes?” explained Guido Palau of his glossy, finger-raked waves. Smudgy, worn-in liner and bare (yet notably glowing) skin courtesy of fashion week favorite, Diane Kendal, came together with Palau’s damp tresses to show a fresh take on Wang’s standard polished-edgy perfection. Surely the 90’s grunge scene never looked this futuristic.
