Alexander Wang is the story of a meteoric rise; it is a precocious talent poised to conquer the whole sphere of fashion. At 25 years old, and only three years after his first collection, the young man has earned and deserved his place in the big…
The Wang family is Chinese, but Alexander was born in San Francisco, on the California coast in 1984. He spent his childhood, and imbue the special atmosphere on the beaches surfing, lounging, and freedom. But it must also be done to the austerity of the boarding school where he spent his school … This is what will make his later style diversity.
At 18, he left his California to study design at the Parsons School in New York. Indeed, it already feels a great attraction to the world of fashion, and the school is one of the best the United States. Alexander will have the opportunity to participate in numerous internal collaborations with Vogue magazine but also with top New York designers such as Derek Lam and Marc Jacobs.
This one quickly notices the talent of the young creator, and when Wang prematurely left school to embark on the creation freelance, Jacobs offered him a stylist in parallel position within his team. This allows the young man to continue to train in the field, but he has one wish: to create his own label.
Thus the name “Alexander Wang” was born in 2006 in San Francisco. His first collection is made of fuzzy little tops and chunky knit sweaters. Its fresh character, rock details and brilliantly cut immediately charm the fashion editors, who herald the arrival of a prodigy. But with his spring-summer 2007 collection that truly Wang entered among the creators fashionable…
All parts are incredibly in tune with the times, and are exactly what women want to wear. The Wang style, simple and light, between rock roll and simplicity, the rage. I must say that the designer always manages to slip in its collections addictive pieces that are talked about. Thus he declined to infinity the blazer women’s version , or empire waist dress, without tiring.
Wang recipe lies in a style easy to wear, makes clean cuts but also dark details. It is also one of the creators who was later in the operation of the rock roll universe redorant the shield to the threadbare jeans and torn sweatshirts.
Yet we also find in its collections through rooms full of chic elegance, such as evening dresses draped, or mini cocktail dresses with asymmetrical details. It is this complexity and diversity of genres that made the growing success of Wang.
The United States were first conquered, and our creator received in 2008 the prestigious CFDA Award, highest honor that gave him international recognition. He then begins to export, and gradually multiply outlets worldwide. He even wins a corner at Barney’s, guarantee of value to the whole fashion world.
Given such success, the young designer looking to expand its offer to gently move towards a lifestyle Alexander Wang. Thus it is launching in 2009 a second line called “T by Alexander Wang”, where he developed the concept of lightweight jersey and weathered by time, it applies on t-shirts and dresses in giving them a cozy look and sober grunge. It also develops lines of footwear and bags. We remember also the bag Coco Duffel who was the subject of a real raid…
But Wang also multiplies collaborations to expand its scope. He therefore supported the Gap brand for a line “Design Edition”, drawing from the casual roots of America. Similarly, it uses the services of Linda Farrow to develop an optical line, and delves into the makeup world through collaboration with Shiseido. It also rubs jewelery by creating the brand Abraxas Rex a collection of jewelry inspired by Tina Turner in the movie “Mad Max”…
The success does not expect the number of years for Alexander Wang. The universe hears about it, and he gets the unanimous biggest fashion editors: his style is what was missing women. His unconditional most demanding VIP include such as Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Sarah Jessica Parker, and his shows are expected in Paris, New York or Milan. The question arises: but what does he will have to do now…?
