For his hotly-anticipated debut at Balenciaga, Alexander Wang showed a polished fall collection that stayed true to the historic fashion house’s roots. Marble was the theme of the 35-piece lineup, and the stone inspiration worked its way into the black, white, and gray clothes and accessories, as well as the actual runway itself. True to form, Wang delivered touches of his signature cool-girl spin—the cocktail dresses were designed to look refined and covered-up in the front and revealingly sexy in the back. The designer’s knack for accessories also came through, with toe-cleavage baring heels, boxy bags with silver frames, and sleek knotted silver cuffs—all minimal with a bit of a sexy edge, a signature evident in everything Alexander Wang touches.
