For his Spring/Summer 2010 collection, Alexander Wang was inspired by someone a little unexpected, you! That's right, Wang was inspired by American college girls and athletes for this season. However, it wasn't blue and gold jerseys and running shoes walking down the runway. Wang took American athletic wear and gave it an edgy, but still slightly feminine twist. Every day basics like fleece pullovers and short day dresses are made exciting with developing trends like broad shoulders, cut-outs, knee-high socks, and exposed boy shorts. The collection is filled with neutral colors, lots of cotton and jersey accented with brown leather, lace, and even pom-poms.
I love this collection because it is truly wearable and it makes athletic-wear more fashion forward. Although we at BARE are all for getting into the school spirit and enjoying a good old-fashioned football game, we are a little mortified by a sea of ill-fitting jerseys. Wang's spring collection is the perfect answer to this dilemma. Below are a few of my favorite looks from this collection!
