Alexander Wang: Runway Music
MOVE, GROOVE, PROVE YOU CAN WALK TO THIS BEAT!
“They’re like hooker outfits. Wonderful hooker outfits.”
“Any hoe that can throw on a Foxy song is fucking down with me.”
“I love how gangster Alexander Wang is.”
No, these aren’t comments from fashion editors, stylists, models, or even bitchy queens — they’re posted on YouTube in response to Alexander Wang’s Spring 2009 show. Now I know what you’re thinking: Spring 2009? But this is not so much a question of timing as it is about taste. Impeccable ghetto fabulous taste. This was the collection that had everyone thinking, “oh shit, oh shit, oh shit oh shit oh shit,” because Wang was about to break out as the next “it” designer.
This collection’s aesthetic and music still inspires me today. Heck, I work out to Alexander Wang runway music. Here is the playlist from his Spring 2009 collection, something that fashion editors, stylists, models, and bitchy queens alike can walk to.
