On Saturday, March 31st, 2018, the spring ready to wear 2018 Alexander Wang NYC Runway Show took place.
Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber walk the runway at Alexander Wang’s early summer fashion show in New York rocking biker glamour.
According to a 2018 Elle report, the two were wearing an arrange of biker-inspired outfits from the Hells Angels’esque collection – available from September – the models strutted across the South Street Seaport Pier 17 rooftop last night in over-sized leather jackets, denim shorts, lace bralettes and printed bandanas.

In another snap Hadid posted herself practicing for the show with her fellow models. She captioned it ‘AWang Day a little early this season?????? @alexanderwangny @pg_dmcasting@samuel_ellis THANK YOU!!!!! by @griff_lipson‘.
According to a 2018 Vogue report, Collection-wise, though, this was a strong outing for Wang—not necessarily breaking new ground, but much more energetic than his show last season at the RKO Hamilton Theater. The most directional idea was the way he layered cutoffs over leather leggings.
You could picture his clients experimenting with that look in real life. He had fun with denim, too, showing a skinny style with one leg covered in silver studs or shredded baggies with an easy drawstring waist. There isn’t a designer around without a deconstructed, off-the-shoulder button-down these days; Wang’s versions come spliced with silk camis or mashed-up with a sports bra, and he extended those metaphors to his tailoring.
There were a lot of extra sleeves and jackets that were cut in half and worn as skirts. Wang’s Adidas collab is ongoing; everybody’s going to want to get their hands on the zip-front jacket with the extra sleeves cinching the waist.
