With a standout finale made up of a thoroughly new knitwear silhouette, Alexander Wang continues to impress at the helm of the famed French fashion house

As one of the most talked about design leaders on the circuit, 30-year-old Alexander Wang is hitting his stride at the house of Balenciaga.

The young visionary who took the reins from Nicolas Ghesquière and currently splits his time between Paris and New York, is proving to be humble, smart and savvy about his vision for the French brand.

The silhouette today still honoured the legacy of Cristóbal Balenciaga – but with a thoroughly contemporary take. Nipped in waists and warped, curved shoulder outlines came by way of dresses, coats (more boxy around the middle, especially one leather lapelled, standout style), charcoal and navy infused by primary brights with quite literal added pops of colour, and there was a play on asymmetry running from shoulders to thighs with certain styles.

The finale came in the form of knitwear – deconstructed sweaters with the emphasis all about the shoulder yoke – detailed, delicate, yet strong. A good summary of the entire collection by Mr Wang.
