“An experiment in techno couture” was the thesis for Alexander Wang’s Balenciaga pre-fall collection, according to a representative of the house. Essentially, Wang fused his street-driven aesthetic with classic Cristóbal Balenciaga codes (don’t forget the codes!), working elements of today’s sporty, digital lifestyle on silhouettes with touches of old-school volume. A leather dress with slightly rounded shoulders came in a pixilated print. A bonded wool sweatshirt was cut roomy with cool spiral detailing the sleeves.

There were also references to snowboarding via performance fabrics and hardware — giant silver toggles and snaps — on sporty tailored pants as well as outerwear and snow booties. Midway through the show, the look changed gears from sporty to classically sophisticated with a velvet and crepe winged dress that fell in graceful folds and a black, long-sleeve silk gown.
