Credited as being chiefly responsible for the now ubiquitous athletic trend, Alexander Wang comes to the runway yet again with a new and refreshing take on sportswear meets high fashion. His love for sneakers and sporty pieces has birthed an ongoing fashion revolution as fashionistas and consumers alike continue to elevate sneakers, joggers, and hoodies into a higher level of chic.
This Spring/Summer 2015 season, Alexander Wang did not send models down the runway in sneakers. The footwear was still of sporty inspiration though, with woven fabric, mesh, and rubber used as materials for the heels that the models wore. The presence of sneaker culture was shown in the clothes themselves, as iconic sneaker designs and prints consistently showed up and shaped the design of the collection. Here’s my 10 favorites from the Alexander Wang Spring 2015 Runway:
One would not equate the Alexander Wang brand to office style, but this particular look will look perfect for work. Both the white blazer and crisp trousers are tailored to perfection, and the woven heels add a color splash to this black and white look.
Inspired by the hottest sneaks to storm the scene, the Nike Flyknits, this orange body con dress can be a graphic and more contemporary alternative to your LBD.
Yellow, gray, and black; get inspired by how visually interesting all three colors look when combined together. The ribbing on the bright top is especially chic.
A lightweight jersey maxi like this one can be a major statement, one that shows off your high level and haute couture chops. I can definitely see this modern stunner on celebs with edgy style like Rihanna or Miley.
Wear your love for Jordans on your sleeve. Literally. The signature Jordan sneaker print is made into a sweater that’ll look just as good when paired with your everyday denim and ballet flats.
Substitute your trusty leather motorcycle jacket for this structured mesh piece. The red piping is a detail that’ll make a difference on your outfits.
Inspired by another iconic sneaker, the Adidas Stan Smith, this tennis skirt and polo ensemble is a new brand of preppy country club chic.
The designer continues to make joggers a style staple as he shows this amazing gray joggers with front piping detail on the runway. Take a cue from this head to toe gray look, monochromatic need not be boring when it is rich in texture and athletic dressing need not be sloppy when pieces are as polished as this.
The beautiful beading on this blouse is a work of art in itself. A piece like this one can make your look stand out instantly.
Fearless and confident in his vision, the lines in this frock is jaw dropping and serves as an extraordinary design element.
How are you liking this collection? I personally love it! Have a great weekend ladies!
