Alexander Wang’s SS2013 show was a mesmerising mix of leather, monochrome and his signature streetwear. My favourite piece of the show was undoubtably the above dress which was the perfect embodiment of Wang’s Spring/Summer collection.
This sleek and sexy two piece straddles the line between structure and fluidity, an aim which the fashion connoisseur expressed in post-show interviews. Deconstruction is key.
Unfortunately my student budget won’t stretch to an authentic Alexander Wang piece, so since the New York show I’ve been obediently waiting for the Highstreet to produce some tasteful imitations, and the online store, Missguided has come up trumps. You can pick up the Wang-esque Eris dress for under £30, while a the Effia crop top is under £20. Bargain! I’ll be wearing mine with a sleek ponytail and minimal makeup a la Alexander Wang.
From catwalk to high street all in a matter of months! Thanks Missguided.co.uk!
