Last night, at Alexander Wang‘s Spring 2017 show at New York Fashion Week, the designer did what can only be called the fashion equivalent of a surprise album (a la Bey) and closed the show by unveiling an 84-piece capsule collection with Adidas Originals.
Between the star-studded front row (Kylie Jenner, Tyga, Nicki Minaj, Pamela Anderson, Zoe Kravitz, Madonna, Skrillex), the epic #WANGFEST after-party (featuring McDonalds and 7/11 pop-up trucks and performances by CL, Travis Scott and Desiigner) and the surprise announcement, it’s safe to say that Wang will go down as a major highlight of fashion week this season. Oh and did we mention that the surfer/skater girl-inspired hair at the show involved 18 (!!!) models getting their hair bleached and chopped pre-runway? Hairstylist Guido Palau told us it’s Wang’s persuasiveness that makes the models willing to go for a new look. “I’m always amazed, actually, how Alex has got the power,” said Palau. Same.
The Adidas Originals x Alexander Wang collection hits stores sometime in the spring. If you’re in NYC, a pop-up truck will be selling items from the collab today (September 11th) at the following locations:
Canal Street & Mercer – 12pm
5th Ave & 57th Street – 3pm
McCarren Park at Bedford & N 12th – 6pm
