As part of the Pop-In series, Nordstrom Vancouver hosted a special event showcasing Alexander Wang’s Fall/Winter 2015 line, and snippets of the T by Alexander Wang Resort 2016 collection. Members of the New York Wang team were on-hand and offered insight into the collection while models showed shoppers a 360 view of the looks.
For the Fall 2015 collection Alexander Wang presented a range of pieces that would thrill the all-black wearing sophisticate, the retro gothic lover and those who crave comfort in their day to day clothing.
The most eye-catching part of this collection was the sleeveless dress with velour line curving seams. This dress was defined by accentuating it with silver snap trims and exposed zippers which made this classic silhouette stronger.
Wang is known to specialize in refining classic design pieces, and modernizing them, such as the ivory sleeveless cashmere turtleneck, with a revealing open back.
If you’re feeling a bit playful, the T by Alexander Wang collection was athletic and suitable for the brisk outdoors represented best by the leather varsity jacket and grey frayed shift-dress and jacket combination.
The Pop-In also featured a large display of Wang’s handbag collection with the much-anticipated Rockie mini duffle bag that comes in a soft grey and navy hue. Also featured was the newest incarnation of the Gabi tilt-heel bootie that is so beloved by fashionista worldwide.
