Recommended Resort for 2010

Alexander Wang’s latest Resort line, which can only be admired from afar by us poor students, has been inspired by his newfound interest in all-American sportswear. His use of t-shirts and cotton tracksuit tops are easily accesible and he is keeping with the blue denim, nudes and muted colour palates that were witnessed on the S/S 09catwalks- thus meaning these styles and colour schemes are in high street stores already. The structured shoulders reminiscent of the fabulous 80’s (minus the perm) and the tailored skirts and trousers are a business woman’s dream. I love his new take on the dungaree and the ubiquitous playsuit has been reworked for his collection. Pairing a midnight blue sequined wrap-around skirt with a nautical-esque top seems barbaric, yet it is possibly the highlight of the collection. Followers of Wang include Chloe Sevigny and Alexa Chung, and I believe there will be many more to come due to his collection for Gap which is available as of now (Stateside unfortunately, but there is always mail order!) Wang’s signature laid back elusive style is reverberated throughout this new collection and one not to be missed!
