What’s great about Alexander Wang?

“When I started out, I wanted to pick on familiar item that evoked luxury-cashmere was perfect. But moving forward, I want to make it more of a lifestyle brand.I kind of want to be the new Theory,” said Alexander Wang. Despite being a newcomer, Wang’s main label and diffusion label T by Alexander Wang have already become household names, achieving lifestyle-brand status. Inspired by the 80s, French chic and rock grunge, the Alexander Wang label is considered casually cool, street-chic style. In 2006, Wang said his brand was all about ‘M.O.D.,’ or Model Off-Duty, as it evokes a sense of nonchalance, always finished with that freshly rolled-out-of-bed look.

His brand has evolved since then into more sophisticated, reconstructed tailoring, but hasn’t left his casual, T-shirt dressing roots quite yet. For example, his basics line, T by Alexander Wang, is transitioning into a full lifestyle label, expanding beyond its traditional lineup of tees and tanks. This fall, the T lineup includes everything from slouchy wool blazers to leggings with leather piping to zip-up dresses.

2010 Trends and Alexander Wang

This summer, utilitarian, cutout and draping looks rank supreme;meanwhile, highlights from Alexander Wang’s Fall 2010 collection include sexy tailored, menswear-inspired looks for women and luxe velvety dresses.

You can capture all of these very-now Alexander Wang looks at Shopbop.

The Alexander Wang Silky Army Skirt with Front Tie, for example, fuses military toughness with romantic draping. This skirt is pure Wang, representing the nonchalant, Model-Off Duty look he loves. Balance the bulkiness of this off-the-runway skirt with a slim-fitting, casual tank from T by Alexander Wang. Try the Tank with Side Slit, which comes in black, white and heather grey.

    The Asymmetrical Khaki Skirt with Leather Detail is so beautiful and perfect, it makes me want to cry. I love how edgy his clothing is, but maybe I could get away with wearing it to work if the rest of my outfit is conservative. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Oh my goodness, I adore Shopbop AND Alexander Wang! I'm so excited that you're having this giveaway, thanks so much!

    I love the Detail Stitch Stretch Dress, it's pretty, and versatile. I could imagine pairing black heels, leggings, and a belt around the waist for a "daytime" look, and wearing it with black heels, a black clutch handbag, long gold necklace for a "night time" look, maybe even draped over with a cute black blazer or motorcycle jacket for an elegant yet edgy look!

    Thanks so much! I'm an email subscriber.

    My mouth is watering!!! If I win, I/m heading straight to Shopbop.com to buy the "Rocco Mini Duffel":

    http://www.shopbop.com/rocco-mini-duffel-alexander-wang/vp/v=1/845524441864588.htm?folderID=2534374302050950&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize-viewall

    This handbag is elegantly understated with edgy details. Have you seen the luscious texture of the leather–the stitching throughout? It's to die for–and I just might!! It's a very elegant looking handbag and the "edge" come from the unique hardware on the bottom of the bag.

    I love this! Thanks ever so much for this fantastic giveaway! Fingers and toes will remain crossed until this giveaway is over.

    Thanks a million!

    There are so many Alexander Wang items I could list as favorites, but I'll start with the Denim Oxford Shirt Dress with Rib Combo. The line has a beautiful way with asymmetry, making it look interesting and beautiful rather than costumey and unwearable-in-real-life. This particular piece also has a simplicity that I favor. The chambray and jersey fabrics add to that feelings, as do the colors. Love it!

    I really LOVE the "Khaki Corset Dress," although even if I could afford it, idk if I could actually pull it off! In my younger years, sigh:-( The contrast of gorgeous soft jersey draping against the much stiffer + somewhat severe corset…it's unexpected yet totally brilliant. As is the case for most of his designs. Great giveaway! I'm subscibed under: jewelz4208@hotmail.com

    My favorite piece is the Detail Stitch Stretch Top. I just love how he took basic pieces and reinterpreted them just a little bit with the athletic style from his runway to create a basic that's interesting.

    I like his toned down collection for this Spring. In collaborating with Gap, many of the pieces are edgy,
    all-American pieces. The denim and khaki creations are my favorite!
    The "Striped Wraparound Oxoford
    Top' in red paired with Mr. Wang's
    Asymmetrical Khaki Pants is a look
    that I really adore…..

    Hey! I'm French and saying that I LOVE Alexander Wang wouldn't be enough !
    Sincerely at the beggining I wasn't really into fashion. One day, while browsing the internet i fell on his collection "T by Alexander Wang" and yes I literally fell in love with it. My must-have piece is The racerback pocket tank in every color. It can go with everything! I would love to have it unfortunately it's not possible right now.
    Hoping I will be the one…
    Thank you.

    I ♥ Alexander Wang although it's not too often that I splurge on designer items! But, I have been lusting over his "Millie Satchel"!

    http://www.shopbop.com/millie-satchel-alexander-wang/vp/v=1/845524441864697.htm?folderID=2534374302050950&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize-viewall

    It's just darn adorable–I mean, who dosen't love a little leopard print every now and again?!

    Now, I'll be the first to admit that my wardrobe is guilty of being, well, a bit drab at times…you know, a little boring… I think the Millie Satchel would inject just the right amount of pizzazz into my wardrobe–just enough excitement without going too overboard!

    Merci!
