Sports-inspired tailoring is central to Alexander Wang’s DNA. The New York-based label has gained a cult-like following since the debut of its first NYFW collection in 2007. Following on from great praise, a CFDA win and the title of Swarovski Designer of the Year later came, making the brand one of the most coveted among the Downtown style set. And the appeal is easy to see; fuss-free staples that work around the clock, adding edge to every look. Sharp, straight and skinny trousers instantly transform outfits, adding confidence and an air of urban modernity. Boyish figures will benefit from high-waist cuts that add shape and define, while slick tapered styles are universally flattering. Look too for the label’s inimitable subtle statement with metallic fabrics, high-shine finishes and sportif details like mesh and leather.
