Take Me A-Wang!


Lord knows I love the styles of Alexander Wang, from the shoes to the black and white fabrics and leather to the style lines, and let's not forget his Bay area roots.

Wang's T line has very much a layering comfortable aesthetic, however other elements of the RTW line were the winners close to my heart. Not too shabby for a fellow who looks up to Ralph Laureneh? So after viewing the men's wear collection to no surprise I adored various pieces for inspiration; also hoping to slowly rub the boy in the right fashionable direction this season... haha, entirely joking, of course!

My co-worker pokes fun sometimes, because when we view runway shows and discuss them at work it often leads toward the inside joke stated, "you had me at Wang." I know your'e probably pondering along the lines of silly adults at the workplace, but let me tell you during stressful long hours one must make the most of a work day, no?
AFTER HOURS:
Today, I had a full on rummaging party in my closet once more and found a pair of men's wear inspired vintage trousers. They had paneled fall-front pleats, leather trimmed pockets, suspender spaces to fill, and a tiny waist that I had to pray myself to get into. What more could one ask for? ...No but, honestly I cannot tell you where I acquired these lovely trousers, however I do love them! It's quite funny what you do when you have a little bit of time waiting for a friend to visit.


Since the weather is warm, I decided to make my look feminine by pairing it with a ruched halter top, then added combat boots simply because these trousers were clearly constructed for someone of a shorter stature. For an autumn look I already have ideas for wearing these pants in a couple of different ways from dressy or casual, to forward city-styling!

Although this fabric is made of wool, which I'm very much allergic to [usually], it had a softer hand than most, and I'm probably going to insert cotton panels for the legs soon (a very easy trick that I learned from my French pattern-making professor.) Oh, the parents would be so proud to know that my pricey education is finally becoming helpful these days.

Even if you aren't an Alexander Wang fan yet, perhaps a dose of minimalism influence for you is just around the corner! Here's to wishing you the best with loads of enjoyment on the weekend my dears.

  20. Thanks Arash! lol, yeah, I'd say these two looks from his line aren't for everyone, though I actually loved it for the black leather & layering. It reminded me of a cross between wearable Damir Doma+ with Rick Owens elements. Thank you for your comment. :)
