-"Ashish Topshop heels but AWESOME" -- Ah yes, I believe I was enthralled by the amazing animal print wedges and the power of capital letters.-"Sweatshirt corset, meh" -- I was not enthralled the sweatshirt corset.-"Bedsheet coat OMG WAIT Morning After coat *get patented" -- You know the coat from the collection with the bedsheet-like material streaming out the back? Yeah. I'm dubbing it "The Morning After Coat." And getting it copyrighted.-"Aviator cap zips to cape" -- Good job me, you know how to see things and spell a seven letter word.
-"Alex is more deconstructing than ever before" -- I think I wrote this so dramatically thinking I would rush out of the studio and yell "Stop the presses!" and run to a hotel in the 20's to sit down at a typewriter and write things like "...THAN EVER BEFORE!" with great gusto? Or something?
-"Olive tent coats/skirts via CdG aw09?" -- Ooh, look, actual observation! The Morning After Coat *C with circle around it* reminded me of those olive coats from Comme aw09 with plaid fabrics streaming out the upper backs. You know the one? I'm still a little iffy about it. I may need to somehow steal both so I can compare. I would use them for these business reasons only, of course.
-"Some shorts/undies/pants layering is awk?" -- Yeah, there was some weird layering in the lower abdomen area that makes me wiggle of discomfort.-"Cuts not as discrete and amazing as Cushnie" -- What's with this sudden load of bitterpill? Anyways, the futuristic-like cuts were not as great as those at Cushnie et Ochs, and I still think so (however, Cushnie cuts would not have been Wang-like, so this is a minor issue.)
-"Bed!!! quilted shorts + bedsheets" -- I'm telling you, there was serious bed stuff! Bedsheets coats and quilted shorts! Requires three exclamation points! Sidenote: The shorts are totally going to be sold at Opening Ceremony. Just wait for it.-"SINGLASSES" The sunglasses were kind of incredible. They are like Enid Coleslaw+50's diners (authentic ones, not Wowsville)+vintage cars+that one picture of Kate Moss with the thing and the thing (yes, that one.) Want.-"McQueen moto bootie?" -- The leather jacket-like shoe was a bit similar to another Alexander's version, but I prefer Wang's because it is less costume-y and kitschy but still clearly inspired by.-"LEATHER quilted shorts!" -- Still dig em, always will.-"Leather quilted sweatshirt Slow + Steady?" -- The leather quilted sweatshirt reminded me a lot of something Mary Ping would do for Slow and Steady Wins the Race, not in a bad or knock-off way, though.-"♥♥" -- Does this need translation? Bravo!! Let's celebrate with bad videotaping skills!
Overall I loved the collection and it definitely went beyond my expectations (meaning..way less club girl than recent seasons!) So looking forward to what Alexander Wang shows next season, but I think those quilted leather shorts will keep me quite happy until then!
