Anyone who saw Alexander Wang’s recent runway collection knows he’s come a long way since his M.O.D. — that’s model-off-duty — days, when he championed a grungy, tousled, tossed-together look. “It’s that sense of ease and not caring,” he said in 2006, “like walking out of bed with messy hair [and putting on] a dirty pair of sneakers.” And though his fall lineup, rife with rigorously reconstructed tailoring, is chapters away from that undone mood, Wang hasn’t abandoned that girl just yet.
