Poncho Villa at Alexander Wang

Wednesday, 3 August 2011

Mr. Wang’s collection was based on thick padded ponchos, quilted on the inside, that looked as if the models had pulled duvet covers over their heads. A key element of the collection was the use of technologically advanced fabrics that combined knits and woven silk in a single piece. These were obviously more expensive fabrics than most designers have access to, but didn’t I just read in New York magazine that Mr. Wang is buying a $2 million apartment in TriBeCa? He can afford to go luxe, even with his sunglasses, the stems of which were wrapped into fur headbands.
“I liked the fur glasses,” said Humberto Leon of Opening Ceremony. “They were definitely après-ski, but city style.”
