Best show from NYFW SS17 Day 4: Alexander Wang

New York Fashion Week

On day 4 of NYFW, Alexander Wang decodes deconstruction and reinvents Adidas

The collection
: Like everyone else, the Alexander Wang girl works, plays and sleeps, but unlike everyone else, she does it with a devil-may-care streak. Wang's SS17 collection brought this girl to life in deconstructed white shirts (looks 1 to 6) sliced and spliced in all the right places, and paired with loungy shorts in some instances. Moving on to the killer sportswear-inspired pieces that Wang does best: scuba-style dresses with neon piping (looks 31 and 32) and an off-the-shoulder windbreaker that scores high on style, but perhaps low on function (look 40). But honestly with Wang, who cares about functionality when it's so painfully cool.

The set: A bare-bones, but huge studio at Pier 94 where Wang has showed before. As soon as the show ended, a screen was pulled away by a truck to unveil the after-party that came complete with a claw machine filled with NARS cosmetics, and a McDonald's and 7-Eleven slurpee food truck (there were a lot of hungry fashion people). It was yet another #wangfest to remember.

What you may have missed: Brands like the 67-year-old activewear institution Adidas don't just mess with their logos, but Wang got the green light to literally turn their brand upside down. As part of the show finale, Wang's great reveal turned out to be a collaboration collection with Adidas, but with the brand's trefoil and "Originals" logo turned upside down. The 84-piece collection of apparel and footwear will be released at Adidas Originals, Alexander Wang stores and selected retailers next spring, but fans in New York City can get their hands on a selected number of items from pop-up trucks stationed around the city tomorrow.
