I remember the first time I saw a small selection of Alex Wang pieces at Nordstrom. It was fall 2008, and the collection had oversized knit sweaters, baggy jackets and pants, tanks and tees, and beanies – everything I love to wear. And a pea coat I coveted but was never able to locate… Do you remember this collection? All of the dresses, skirts and shorts were shown with ripped tights… I fell for and bought a grey nubby knit vest with a big collar and a pair of distressed boyfriend rolled cut-off shorts. I live in the shorts (year round), and the knit vest is just right when I want to keep the core super warm!
I have found something perfect for me in nearly every collection since then, and now with the T by Alexander Wang line, I’m a true devotee. It will be interesting to see what he does at Balenciaga.
As the temperature continues to stay cold where I am, there were items in the Fall 2013 collection shown yesterday in New York that would be perfect for right now! If only… Here are a few of my favorite pieces, photos from Style.com.
