Last Looks: Yesterday’s Runway at Alexander Wang, Altuzarra and Monique Lhuillier

Industry darling Alexander Wang celebrated his tenth year at the helm of his eponymous line with a knockout collection based in grunge, edge and androgyny.

Known for putting on a show, Wang made sure not to disappoint, using blasting music, a giant projection screen and pole dancers to inject the evening with an energy only the designer himself could create.

On the runway, deconstructed denim, oversized tees, pajama trousers and menswear-inspired trenches mixed with silk lingerie maxi dresses, skintight leather pants and his signature dose of sportswear (think basketball jersey weaves, clean white hoodies and the ever-trendy fashion sneak). Though we’re sorry to say there will be no return to Balenciaga for Wang next year, we’re excited to see what he’ll be doing with the free time.
