the amazing mr. wang

he just has IT, he seems to have had the cool just built into him from birth. the way he sees things, classic things and completely flips them on there head. the opening looks, done in grey pinstripe suiting were abbreviations of what we know as high-powered corporate wear, but in wang's hands, become sexy body-con coats, with crossover lapels and cover-buttons, and an cropped bolero over a slinky dip-dyed singlet. even a mini-dress with tails in the back and a beautiful fragile lace top edge. a simply grey sweater is updated when draped and cut to the sternum. like christopher kane a few seasons back, wang managed to make velvet sexy, by way of a blood-red a -line mini dress with lace sleeves, a pair of merlot over-the-boot leggings and little crop tops that peek-a-boo out from under a clever dinner jacket/capelet hybrid. his closing passage of little grecian draped dresses, are the perfect answer to red-carpet dressing for the new young and the restless group of it-girl actresses and socialites. by way of accessories, he showed amazing fabric wrapped sunglasses, a sweet vertical-style doctor-bag, in high-shine bag leather, black canvas nap-sacks + super-stacked moccasin-style booties in leather and velvet. with the cult following that wang harbours, one would imagine outside pressure would get to him, but its seems that his confidence and ability just seem to grow with every new collection, the standard and quality of work is always there and that is what keeps the cool girls wanting more...
