Alexander Wang’s Spring Collection Was Inspired by Air Jordans and Classic Kicks

Alexander Wang looks to sneaker heads for runway inspiration.

Alexander Wang's spring 2015 runway show yesterday was a technicolor marriage between streetwear and evening wear. The strength of this collection was in its textures rather than its silhouettes: the shapes were unintimidating and wearable, the details borrowed from sneaker heads. A high neck body con dress clings flatteringly to the body, while its electric blue mesh panels, leave little to the imagination, recall the mesh upper of Nike Fly Knits. A boxy cropped blouse, paying homage to the Air Jordans, is done up in the sneakers signature elephant print. It wasn't so much a mix of the high and the low, but rather a synergy of high and low at the same time: fashion and sleek tech fabrics have found a new home. Wang had a front row worthy of these neo-classics: Rihanna, Miguel, Nicki, and Tyga all smiled and watched the models strut to amped up Diplo and Matrixxman tracks. Check out the looks below.
