definitely a better produced collection this season i've seen from him since a/w 10. but you can definitely see the chalayan elements and maybe even a nod to kokosalaki with those pieced-together looks....very sophia circa 2002.
No tacky leggings or spray on pants paired with awkard tops, this is a full 180, very clean, very modern and very sexy. AW should stick to making dresses, when they look this good, very unique and beautiful!
I find that I should never expect new ideas from Wang. Being "inspired" by more talented designers is his forte and it seems to be quite lucrative. With that being said this is a nice spring collection. The bags are so charming but the shoes are a big miss to me. I wish there was more color because then the attention would be off the cuts and details. Half of this collection is off in the fit and construction to me. The cutouts are nice in the more structured dresses and tops but fails on those dreadful shorts. Actually, the dresses are the only decent part of this elementary, yet solid, collection.
There's Chanel Iman....... then there's everyone else.
