I was reading this blog last night and it mentioned that Net-a-porter was having tons of Alexander Wang sales for this holiday season. I was already aware that this particular website only carries women designer's apparel, but my thirst for curiosity impulsed me get on it and just check out what they had on sale. I immediately clicked on Alexander Wang and a few of his clothes listed under his label were sold out, gone. Well, this is logical, the guy has been making waves on the industry in the last few years for his urban/edgy approach amped up with a great dose of sophistication. I don't know if this is true, but I once read that his shoes were sold out even before they appeared on the runway, I know, it sounds ridiculous, but that just goes to show you how talented this guy is.
Alexander Wang 2009 Spring/Summer
While on his page, I immediately spotted this version from his 2009 Spring/Summer collection. This blue-denim printed suede biker jacket retails for $1,250 and some, including taxes, shipping and handling. I know the price is almost out of most people reach, but if you have the dough to purchase it, do it. One of the reasons I recommend this jacket is because it has a subtle versatility. On the editor's note, it indicates that one can remove the rib-knit sleeves and wear it as a vest, which is very convenient, in case it gets too hot. It also has this rocker-chic/downtown girl, "Don't f*ck with me" attitude, which I love.
This ubiquitous piece has been spotted on the likes of Rihanna, Lindsay Lohan and Blake Lively. All that's left is perhaps for Madonna to wear it on one of her racy videos, or even to be on the cover of Vogue (oh well, that's a bit too delusional), but I think this jacket can add to a great editorial. I really like how they presented this jacket, paired with black skinnies, black heels and a simple white tee. It just works for me, maybe just a tad of jewelry for a touch of personality or even maybe switch the shoes for a Louboutin pair, it all just depends on the occasion and the wearer.
