Over the weekend, Alexander Wang showed his Spring 2019 ready-to-wear collection at Fashion Week in New York City. This was a particularly special event for Wang, as his father was in attendance for the first time ever.
With the likes of Pusha T, among a number of other celebrities looking on, note cards on each seat read, “Today marks a new beginning, a new identity, and a new day for my brand.” Wang is ultimately embracing his roots with this collection, and more specifically, his family, with the range being inspired by his parents and their immigration story.
Furthermore, as the likes of Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber strutted down the runway, Childish Gambino‘s recent anthem, “This Is America,” rang out all throughout the space. Considerably patriotic, the assortment of garments consisted of red, white, and blue bandanas; football jerseys; biker shorts; leather jackets; and faded denim, in addition to various other silhouettes, including a new sneaker collaboration with adidas.
