Surrealistic Approach

For me this season Alexander Wang's FW12 collection was all about the bottom parts. These shoes......what can I say about these shoes other than MARVELOUS! The whole collection is in Black, Milk and Burgundy, but used in many different textures. The Mesh is something that we have seen from this designer also in previous collections, but now he has taken it to another level! Meshed stockings and Meshed leather tops! 

This silhouette with the cropped trousers; Baggy but slimmer at the bottom, are so me! It really puts the accent on the ankle and draws attention to these GRAND shoes! I am sorry but Ialmost want to end all me sentences with an explanation mark, it is just such an exciting collection!

"a surrealistic approach to fabric manipulation," as he explained in a preview. "It's this idea of shrink-wrap, lamination, covering up and lacquering." Nearly every surface seemed to have a slick sheen or gloss. There is washed leather with shiny accents and also the washed leather trousers with the suede is really rocking. I also absolutely like the a-symetrical sky high splits in the skirts and also in the jackets. LOVE!
