Alexander Wang Fall 12 Review + Analysis Part 2

Usually these super model castings don't make sense but with Alexander Wang's constant references to the 90s in his designs it is only fitting he have models from the same era walk the show.

Alexander Wang's runway too has become a spectacle itself these last few seasons. The previous fall collection had lit floor panels and last season had giant mirrors. This season, the same mirrors have multiplied and are as disorienting as ever. Besides the illusion effect, the mirrors help slightly brighten up the badly lit runway. Seriously, the lighting was almost as bad as that witch craft Alexander McQueen show a few years ago.

Along with the runway set up, the fall show garnered attention when super models were confirmed to walk. Last season he had Hilary Rhoda but this season is on a whole other level. The Gisele level. Oh and Shalom Harlow, Carmen Kass, and Karolina Kurkova level. Usually these super model castings don't make sense but with Alexander Wang's constant references to the 90s in his designs it is only fitting he have models from the same era walk the show.

I can just imagine how much it costs to have these ladies walk a few seconds on the runway. I bet that's why there's no after party this season. But hey, the Alexander Wang business seems to be on top form rapidly expanding (front rowers got a few pieces off the new Objects line, out on Monday). I'll even go out on a whim here and say he'll be the next great American designer. Associating with fashion house hold names is just another way to speed things up.
