First look: Alexander Wang Cruise 2016

Anonymity is the new attraction

Editor: Buro 24/7

Alexander Wang presents his new lineup for Cruise 2016. Exploring the idea that anonymity is the new attraction in a digital age, Wang showcases a strong wearable collection, featuring a muted colour palette and luxurious fabrications. Take a closer look here...

"I think about the street, and what does it mean for us today," Alexander Wang said on Wednesday during his Cruise 2016 presentation, "Before it was a place of anonymity. Now, it's such a platform, it's where everyone is looking. It's so viral that the idea of being anonymous almost feels like it's this new attraction." 

Of course, the fact that Wang has spotted this movement, and given it life through such an astute explanation is one of the many reasons that he is one of the most successful designers of his generation.

Stand out pieces include a white t-shirt dress with oversized pleating, pretty embellished pieces such as silk a-line skirts and dresses (which are injected with Wang edge and styled with leather and a pinch of aggression), and covetable leather accessories – including some waitlist-worthy bags.
