Alexander Wang Shows Party Black, Christian Siriano Brings Nevada

By  |  0 Comments

Alexander Wang blended the office with the nightlife in the Feb. 11 New York Fashion Week show for Fall/Winter 2017. The designer took grunge into play with all-black and a seemingly rave-ready abandoned venue, the old RKO Hamilton Theatre, Forbes reported.

The looks stuck to black with a few ventures into grays and whites, including blazers, lots of simple ankle boots, tights and leggings, and accessories. A few close-fitting jumpsuits, one off-the-shoulder, and a frilled mini skirt interrupted the more casual high-waisted button-fly pants and T-shirts. Loose hair and heavy black eyeliner completed the looks.

Models walking in the show included Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Hadid wore leather shorts over tights and a long-sleeve tee, while Jenner walked in long leather skinny pants and a loose collared shirt.

A few famous faces appeared in the audience as well, including models Kylie Jenner and Anwar Hadid in the front row.

Other attending models were Sofia Richie and Brooklyn Beckham, and among the celebrities appearing were Zoë Kravitz and Teyana Taylor, both singers, actresses and sometimes models, and actor and singer Ansel Elgort. A$AP Rock and A$AP Ferg and Fetty Wap also attended.

Christian Siriano’s show, also on Feb. 11, was a blend of desert shades inspired by the sands in Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, according to ABC.

Siriano included several models who didn’t match the usual sizing on the runway, including Iskra Lawrence, according to Popsugar. Siriano’s lineup was a show of luxury, featuring velvets, silky gowns, long skirts, flowing trousers, and furs. Burnt oranges and pale pinks, as well as flashier golds and subtler coppers and blacks, were the colors of focus.

One ensemble, in particular, got some attention, a shining pink full-length slit skirt and a black tee that read “People are People.”

Although that piece might certainly be taken as a political statement, ABC reported that the former Project Runway winner said that he wanted to transport the show out of the political tensions going on. Instead, he wanted to take viewers into a dreamlike experience.

I'm a lover of words in all forms, sweatshirts in all conditions, and God in all circumstances. I particularly enjoy working collaboratively on the written word and wearing microfiber robes (preferably at the same time). Most of the time I don't get enough sleep, but I make a valiant effort.
