After the precision and linear quality of his spring collection, Alexander Wang was in the mood for something softer for pre-fall. “We were playing with this idea of blurriness and ambiguity,” he said. “I love the idea of intertwining and not knowing where a dress ends and a jacket begins.” He blurred the lines with great scarf dresses, slim with a loosely draped line, some in suede or sueded jersey. They were done in a mostly colorless palette of black, gray and white, although Wang did point out his use of “mink” and “amaretto.” Sweatshirts and sweatpants came in silk printed to look like tweed and jacquard meant to look like flocking, adding nice surface detail and sophistication to the casual streetwear. On the stricter side were tailored looks, such as sharp jackets with leather layering. Accessories offered new bags, including a streamlined stingray backpack with U-shaped metal feet.
