The versatility of Alexander Wang’s FW14 collection seems like it was actually made to keep up with the city lifestyle. The fashionistas trekked from NYC to Brooklyn in a snow storm to see fashions designed especially for a commute like that. Many of these pieces even had built-in utilities, made for the modern adventurer with storage designed especially for smart phones, moleskin’s or lipstick. Although the pop colors, textures and heat-activated leather scream high fashion innovation there is undeniable functionality reflected in the outerwear and footwear in Wang’s show. The over the knee leather boots and jackets were definitely the star of the show proving that function can indeed be fashionable.
