Alexander Wang's survivalist leanings were front and center at his H&M show last week, but they crystallized a season or two back in his Fall '14 and Resort '15 main line offerings. He returned to the look in his Resort '15 diffusion line, T.

Spare and sporty was the order of the day. Here there was a metallic silver anorak that folded up into itself, leaving the wearer with a neat little pouch. (RiRi herself donned it for Wang's Spring show, along with the matching bucket hat—and little else.) When things get chillier, the T customer can cozy up to a hyper-sporty, hyper-utilitarian coat in performance nylon with fleece lining and sharp, laser-cut pocket detailing. Elsewhere, there were particularly cool glossy tracksuits with contrasting matte leather stripes. (The pants came with tear-away snaps for the girl who's really on the go.) The brutalism of Wang's most synthetic-seeming pieces was tempered by gorgeous chunky knits, seen in a pullover and drop-crotch sweatpants, and buttery sea-foam green lambskin, which he whipped into bralettes and trousers. Also nice was an oversize, martial-looking olive bomber. But it wasn't all big and boxy—the body-con numbers for which Wang was originally known were well represented here, in dresses and tops. Especially compelling was printing done over a plaited rib knit so that when stretched across the torso, it exposed the undyed material in between.

With all this premium put on functionality and activity, Wang might be remiss not to explore the wear and tear his girl's wardrobe is bound to encounter. Deterioration is a theme the designer's flirted with in the past, and here he conjured it up with indigo, seen in anoraks and cotton knits washed to a convincing distress. And despite a sweatshirt printed with helpful symbols for washing, like those seen on care tags, the takeaway here was clear: cool clothes to get down and dirty in—and all but certain to thrill would-be action heroines worldwide.

Wang is great when he does color. Its a shame he doesnt do it very often.

Those hats actually threw me off the collection at first. But if you look at the clothes with a thumb or finger over the head they're quite nice.

Very nice. Too bad T is so overpriced now.
