For Alexander Wang, what truly defines a style is how people dress in their off days, forming the basis for his collections where clean, classic, luxurious and refined silhouettes are introduced to an urban street provocative ideal. This season, the familiar dark urban aesthetic of past seasons is replaced with new vivid colored looks and two new lines : bags and shoes, exclusively at colette for France.
