Keep Up With The Spirit Of Time Via Alexander Wang Spring Summer 2017 Collection

Wang Effortlessly Upped The Ante In The Street Wear Game Yet Again With Alexander Wang Spring Summer 2017 Collection.

You’re surely up for having a tough time catching up with Wang models for assimilating each of the Wang’s SS 2017 runway looks for they simply whiz down the runway.

Watch them, in the video below if you still haven’t, pace down the runway to Princess Nokia’ s soundtrack ‘What that is, hoe?. That girl is a tomboy! That girl is a tomboy! That girl is a tomboy!

And that’s exactly what Alexander Wang Spring Summer 2017 collection swears by – punk surfer girls in bra tops and board shorts, outfits that are unkempt, baggy, comfortable yet mod and aesthetically appealing, much like skate and surf subculture style of the 90’s.

Wang crafted surf aesthetic in a way that asserted individuality and subverted sensuality.

The highlight of the show was what followed the finale lap that revealed one of the biggest partnerships of the season – Adidas Originals x Alexander Wang via a security camera like footage.

Kids have been loving Wang and would love him more for his spring 2017 assemblage that speaks volumes about the youth.

As for the models world over, when off duty, count on Wang’s beanies, fringed moccasins and luxury street wear only to be captured by the paparazzi and advocated by them in the digital world for their Model Off Duty (MOD) athleisure style.

Get a hold of these street wear styling techniques by Wang, who doesn’t hold anything against age, but by keeping up with zeitgeist, he claims that he’s still young.

1) Sensual Lingerie Hooks Up With Casual Wear

It was women’s day wear lingerie at display. It was about sex! Sex was certainly one of the many things Wang wanted to say about via his collection.

Wang loves to make lithe limb models fit into sensual lingerie.

These gave way to slip dresses and bikini tops and skirts done in neon silk in the later half of the show.

2) Grunge Meets Hip Hop

Wang’s spring summer 2017 collection got grunge and hip hop styles together.

Ever seen grungers styling up?

Dressing grunge is a fashion trend that takes inspiration from the grunge music that emerged in mid 80’s and went mainstream in the early 90’s with bands like Nirvana and Alice In Chains.

Grungers do some damage to their denims, wear over-sized and baggy sweaters, layer their clothing to attain that unkempt look, lace up sneakers or combat boots, bleach or dye their hair and prefer keeping it messy.

Hip hop is more about being on fleek and has evolved from the time it has come into existence.

Where hip hop 80’s fashion was more about gold jewelry, moniker belts, Pumas with fat laces, sneakers, caps, baggy outfits  and hooded sweatshirts towards the 90’s, hip hop fashion today is about vibrant sneakers, name chains, fitted leather pants, provocative outfits and adjustable baseball caps a.k.a snapbacks.
