Tropical colors—hibiscus, jade, and aqua—infuse Alexander Wang’s resort wear with a cozy, après-surf feel-good factor. Dresses come wetsuit-tight in merino knits, or care-free in slubby tank shifts with a metallic sheen. Layer up with color-blocked sweaters in sporty high-necked cuts, and cover your surf-scrunched locks with a marled sea-color beanie.
CDFA winner, Parsons dropout, and all-around adored NYC designer Alexander Wang has cultivated an utterly individual (and instantly covetable) aesthetic in the short time since his debut. With a rough-but-refined, street-chic outlook, often looking to neutral colors, bold hardware, and innovative asymmetry, the young designer achieves a look that almost escapes classification, but always shoots straight to the heart of the effortlessly modern girl.
