Recreate Alexander Wang’s Sleek FW18 Beauty Look

NARS-Alexander-Wang-AW18-Beauty-2-1-1440x630

Go backstage at Alexander Wang's last show at NYFW.

From the streets to the boardroom, Alexander Wang’s FW18 collection went from ruling the streets of downtown NY to charging into the 4 Times Square boardroom. The modern CEO has no time to play with frivolity in beauty. Sleek, wet hair was pulled back tight into a low ponytail and nonchalantly finished off with a chrome banana clip, branded with the Alexander Wang logo. Bold brows were shaped with matte shadows and framed a quickly contoured face to highlight its natural edges with NARS Contour Blush for demure sophistication. Nails by Essie polished the look by setting the tone with taupe and gray undertones in Wild Nude for coverage, topped with fine metallic silver in Eau Natural for modern, steel nude nails....

Alexander Wang’s Fall 2018 Show Was Working Girl Meets The Matrix

For his last show during the traditional New York Fashion Week calendar, Alexander Wang set up office in Times Square.
Merging together some major '80s Working Girl vibes with the '90s Matrix look, Wang's Fall 2018 collection was presented in the cubicles of the former Conde Nast building at 4 Times Square. Sticking with the corporate vibe, signs reading 'AWG' (the Alexander Wang Group) covered the mock office.

A swift departure from the designer's usual #WANGFEST after party blowout, this season's show meant serious business. The collection was comprised of tailored suiting, leather trenches, deconstructed blazers, and ultra-small sunglasses that looked straight out of The Matrix....

These Stylish Sisters Prove Why a Bolt Of Blue Eyeshadow is Twice The Fun At Alexander Wang

00-story-simi-and-haze-blue-eyeshadow
Tonight, Alexander Wang presented a Fall 2018 collection that included zipper-accented dresses, Matrix-esque coats, sleek silver hair clips and one striking penny red dye job. But a quick look around proved that power moves were also aplenty in the designer's front row. Never ones to shy from more-is-more makeup, sisters Simi and Haze Khadra wore bright poppy lips, matching pedicures—and a game-changing swipe of turquoise pigment across their lids. This isn't the first sighting of bold blue eyeshadow at New York Fashion Week, where the shade seems to be making an early bid for the makeup color of the season: At Saks Potts, models sported a thin aquamarine streak on their lower lash lines, and sharp cerulean wings showed up at the Chromat show last night. With rain on tomorrow's forecast, consider...

Is 2018 The Last Year Of In-Person New York Fashion Week?

1200x600 (1)
The last time new technology really transformed the world was when the Macintosh computer was released. This was made evident by the now-immortal 1984 commercial, featuring an athletic woman who smashes the brainwashing drones of a Big Brother-esque figure giving a speech to a numb-looking cult. The woman represents the Macintosh commercial disrupting the PC industry of the time, and years later, Apple has predictably dominated the personal tech industry. Now once again, technology is disrupting yet another industry that has firmly held a grasp on its consumers and followers: Fashion, a notoriously anti-tech (We saw what you said last May J.Crew) industry that's finally caving under the pressure of the smartphone world. This New York Fashion Week, Alexander Wang surprised the fashion industry by...

Alexander Wang To Leave New York Fashion Week

The mass exodus of designers leaving New York Fashion Week isn't slowing down anytime soon, and now the CFDA-helmed week is losing one of its biggest designers: Alexander Wang. As WWD reports, the designer is opting out of the traditional NYFW calendar following the Fall 2018 shows this February. Moving forward, Wang will instead present his collections in June and December. "Our customer will be better served through the new system. The innovative approach reframes product on the month that it ships, rather than the outdated labels of ‘resort’ or ‘pre-fall,’ giving our customers more relevant and consistent merchandise throughout the year," Lisa Gersh, CEO of Alexander Wang, told WWD. Under the new format, collections shown in June will hit stores between October and March, while...

Beyoncé’s Clutch Was A Crystal-Encrusted Wad Of $100 Bills

Queen Bey channeled Old Hollywood glamour with some flashy accessories.

Beyoncé supported her husband, JAY-Z, last night at his Tidal X fundraising concert for hurricane and earthquake victims, and she brought her show-stopping wardrobe along with her. I mean, can we just appreciate this look?

Flawless, indeed.

Bey rocked a sultry, emerald green gown (custom-made by Walter Mendez) with slits and cutouts in all the right places. Her plum fur shawl and voluminous waves added a nice Old Hollywood-inspired touch, and her Lorraine Schwartz jewelry provided the right amount of sparkle.

But perhaps the best part of the look was her bag: a crystal-encrusted clutch shaped like a wad of $100 bills. The...

Alexander Wang’s New Fall Campaign Comes With Rolling Papers, Lighters, And Ash Trays

hbz-wang-collection-03-1505491303
Alexander Wang revealed his Fall 2017 campaign yesterday, starring classic Wang Squad members like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, Lexi Boling, and Hanne Gaby. The models wear black with matching studded boots, bedhead hair and smoky eyeliner for the "No After Party"-themed ads. The images echo the designer's Fall 2017 presentation in February at RKO Hamilton Theater in Harlem, NYC. Juergen Teller shot the models right after walking the runway, as they hosted their own after-party in the basement of the theater and strutted the icy streets of New York. But the campaign goes beyond glossy images; Wang also hopped on the merch trend and released smoking and drinking accessories emblazoned with the ads. There are rolling papers, ultra-thin...

This New Alexander Wang Bag Looks Like A Stack Of $100 Bills, Costs $5,000

Instagram

Known for his cool kid-approved streetwear, Alexander Wang is stepping outside his realm and getting a luxe upgrade for Spring 2018. The designer teamed up with Judith Leiber for a limited-edition, Swarovski-encrusted bag (that's shaped like a stack of $100 bills, of course).
As WWD reports, the minaudière is made of 10,263 black, gunmetal, green and clear Swarovski crystals. Accentuated with a real industrial rubber band and chain strap, the kistchy bag takes an entire week to hand-bead to completion. Purchasing it, however, will require an actual stack of $100 bills (and then some), as it costs a cool $4,995.

Adidas Originals X Alexander Wang Season 2 Is a Cyclist’s Dream Come True

hbz-wang-adidas-index-2-1501247608
The first drop of Adidas Originals by Alexander Wang Season 2 is here. Following previous collections, which featured all-black athleisure, re-imagined monochrome tracksuits and a new basketball sneaker, this one takes a bold turn. This installment is inspired by the unexpected combination of raves and cycling (which in itself, sounds like a SoulCycle class). There are 27 unisex pieces, including a skin-tight onesie, cycling shorts and an Adidas-striped balaclava. The drop also includes a new sneaker, the AW Hike Lo, in neon red and green. Tomorrow, the official campaign images, shot by Juergen Teller, will appear in billboards and posters around NYC, with a phone number and product codes for each piece in the collection. Starting at 12pm EST, customers can...

Delivery Three Of Alexander Wang’s Adidas Originals Collab Is Here, And It Includes His Favorite Sneaker!

Do you remember your first Adidas? Alexander Wang does. It was a pair of shell toes circa the early ’90s, when he was a young student at boarding school in California. “We’d draw on them,” he remembers. “That was the extent of our personal expression, because our uniform was so strict.” Fast-forward two and a half decades, and Wang is still wearing Adidas, but this time it’s basketball shoes of his own design. The third delivery of his Adidas Originals collab features two basketball styles and drops on April 1 at Adidas Originals and Alexander Wang stores, both brands’ e-comm sites, and more than 140 retail locations worldwide. No surprise, Wang is just as particular about his personal expression now as...
