I love Alexander Wang because his collection uses basic tees and dresses, and he adds such unexpected and edgy twists. If it were more affordable, I would buy every dress and tee!

i love alexander wang because of the way in which he uses fabrics; so many wearable, comfortable textures made into luxurious pieces. i don't think anyone else is providing viewers and buyers with an aesthetic such as this, everything could be taken straight off of the catwalk and easily worked into every day life.

i just love alexander wangs story.
he dropped out of fashion school - purused his dream and was mentored by major fashion gurus - the DVF.

he goes against the grain and not just enjoys fashion designing but he loves every aspect... he's building an amazing brand with clothes that are easy and extremely wearable. he's modern twist on a classic. and i love him for that.

His clothes are a breath of fresh air, the simplicity and the structure are so well thought through even on basics, his collections are always wearable which can not be said for many designers. His designs are sophisticated yet edgy and one simple item is a staple for any wardrobe which can be wore and re worn in so many versatile ways.

Jay said...

Alexander Wang is the epitome of cool.
He can turn plain, single-color fabric into an architectural piece of art...
I don't know about you but that makes me happy.
Imagine if I won how happy I would be :)

The thing I love most about Alexander Wang is the seeming simplicity of the pieces. Quite a few are fantastic staples with just the right amount of edge for a girl like me. The clothes are not so over the top (read halfway between ready-to-wear and haute couture) that you can get away with wearing them every single day if styled right. What’s more, they’re minimalistic enough to satisfy my urge for a cleaner, sleeker look but still casual chic enough to wear about at just about any every day function (especially the T by Alexander Wang collection). Plus the fabrics look very plush and topnotch which is highly appealing though I have never been able to afford a piece so I’m going by look and absolutely rave reviews.

Morgan-Ashley said...

Alexander Wang is pretty Badd Ass!!! There's always pieces from his collection that have you on the tip of your toes ready for the next season to arrive. It's easy to love a beautifully soft & hard edge collection from Wang because, you have so many options as to how to wear a certain piece/style. ♥

ANN said...

I never ever win these giveaways, but I'm crossing my fingers for this! Alexander Wang is one of my favorite designers! I love how his pieces embody a casual cool downtown yet sophisticated style, and how he always manages to retain that rolled-out-of-bed street edge in his collections. I also think it's amazing how his T by Alexander Wang line has such versatile and wearable pieces. If I win this I swear I will wear every single thing I buy with the gift card and feature them on my blog haha

I love Alexander Wang because he utilises seemingly simple fabrics to create amazingly innovative designs, from dropping out of fashion school and being taken under the wing of DVF, to becoming one of the most recognisable designers int he world, he teaches everyone about the true importance of having a real passion for design, which he expresses through each and every one of his pieces. He is my favourite designer by far and will continue to be as his designs are ever changing and always breathtaking.
I LOVE ALEXANDER WANG!

I love Alexander Wang because he manages to mix the right amounts of basic silhouettes with edgy details (whether it be in the cut, the draping, or the material) that makes his clothes seem incredibly chic yet effortless.

Blanca said...

I love Wang because of his simplicity. He focuses sheerly on design and quality, because there is no onoxious overindulgence to make the statement for him...

Mumbles said...

I loved Alexander Wang because of his clothes, they're so simple and chic, he's not like other designers, he's like the bad boy; he doesn't use bright colours (just black, grey...) and the clothes are great for themsleves... Well, that was until a few months ago, then I saw him in a video and I loved him even more, he seems to be the nicest designer ever, he's smiling all the time and joking (have you seen one of the latest videos of Garance Dore? She filmed him at the after party of his show, and he was so cool dancing with Agyness Deyn)
He even named their shoes as his favourite models!
So that's why I love him, because he's possibly the coolest and nicest designers ever ♥

PS- I'm sorry if my English is too bad...

Amber said...

I love Alexander Wang because he has a remarkable sense of style, and has te knack for creating new styles and trends with his selection of fabrics, cuts, and design. He's a cut above the rest!

Thanks!

I love Alexander Wang because his clothes give off a downtown-chic vibe, and his use of fabrics is genius. His designs range from the casual to the upscale dresses, and there's something for daytime and nighttime too. Alexander Wang is just purely amazing!

Love your blog by the way!

i love alexander wang because he makes me feel beautiful. there is nothing sexier and more feminine than a crisp oversized white tee over a pair of jeans/shorts/skirt. alexander wang keeps it real and keeps me feeling like a million bucks,season after season.

I love Alexander Wang because he takes ordinary pieces and makes them interesting, in a way that is still simple and not over-the-top. I love how is collections mix high fashion and loungewear. I love how he creates structure thats not stiff but very soft. I love how he mixed the 50's/60's cat eye with 80's geometrics and created the genius extreme cat eye sunglasses for Spring 2010! Best of all Alexander Wang is wearable (and comfortable) which is more than many other high fashion labels can claim (McQueens armadillo shoes? ouch). Who wouldn't want to jump into a pair of Wang's cozy sweats or comfy tees? :)

I personally love Alexander Wang, because he really started this new wave of Asian American Designers. He really made it, and it shows that with hard work and perseverance you can really make it. It's super hard to convince your parents to choose a career in fashion esp if you're asian(i would know) and so it's amazing and such an inspiration to see him succeed and really dominate his market. I also love that his clothes are so effortlessly chic and luxurious and arguably unisex. I'm a boy but yet there are always things like I try on and that look cool yet still masculine. Love him so much!

Alexander Wang is so unique,so bold and new! I love everything Wang makes! The clothes are serious,and always look classy!
I am such a Wang fan! YAY!!! Thanks

I've discovered Alexander Wang a few seasons ago and I've been hoked ever since. I couldn't believe how simple, comfortable fabric can be turned and twisted around, deconstructed and transformed into garments that are so wearable and easy to combine. Wang clothes are the epitome of effortless chic.

I also love Wang for his line of accessories. The bags have turned so fast into an absolute must have, for their simple yet surprising characteristics (like the studded bottom) and the shoes and sunglasses are edgy, yet versatile.

I admire Alexander Wang because he's a master of deconstructivism, i love him because he's a designer perfectly adapted to modern times and I like the fact that he constantly evolves, but always stays true to the style that made him famous.

Nil said...

To me, Alexander Wang designs are the meaning of effortlessness. I can say that I discovered the beauty of simplicity with him. He started another era for all the women in the world, that every one of us can enjoy. His pieces are timeless, trendy and always cool. That's why I love him.

Katherine Lee said...

I love A.Wang because his pieces are simple, classic, chic, and timeless. You can dress em up or dress em down and still look put together. I love how he takes such simple pieces but adds just a little spice to make them modern and up-to-date. I would DIE for anything A.Wang!

What I love about Alexander Wang isn’t that he’s the most precocious young designer out there – he isn’t. And it isn’t that he manages to sell me on newfangled fabrics he tries to make work for his simple, oft-constructionist designs, because he doesn’t. Alexander Wang holds an innately special place in my heart for one reason, and one reason alone: I just can’t stop wearing his clothing.

No one has perfected the art of the basic tee or tee shirt dress quite like Alexander Wang. His basic pieces are lasting staples in the most important aspect of my life - my day-to-day routine. He has the creative chops to re-create a boot in a season where every designer had thought he’d done so – but for me, more than anything else, I love that each time I throw on one of his pieces, I feel like that girl whose hair is perfectly careless and whose complete lack of makeup is everything I’d ever need to feel beautiful. More than just his personal aesthetic, how we decide why we love and value one designer over another – it should always be based on how we feel in his clothing, or how we feel inspired every time we see it used in an editorial, a piece of art. Alexander Wang’s designs make me feel inspired; they make me feel like I’m a part of something simple and loved.

What I love about Alexander Wang, where to start? Is it because of his lovely basics and bitchin personality? Yes, somewhat. Or is it because he has a rooted sense of fashion that is both a breath of fresh air and homage to the known? Oh yes. Alexander Wang to me also is a designer who knows who he is. It's not that he dropped out of fashion school, but he knew that that was the path that he had to take. He knew that he would stay true to his own sense of fashion and vision, no one else's, and that is what is so appealing about his line. For myself, I can appreciate talent, skills, and belief in yourself when I see it. It is something that is so rare today, with people being quick to deny their own talent in order to "better fit in", Alexander Wang truly is someone who is an inspirational.

I love Alexander Wang because he embrace the opportunities of clothes. He manages to creative and show that simple clothes can be fierce. To me this is what i want - simple, edgy and mindbreaking pieces in my wardrobe.

Aisha said...

He made us, contemporary women, realize that feminity doesn't lay on how perfect and matchy your outfit looks. A girl can be simple and still be one. A girl can look messy and still be pretty or sexy. All that overdose of "dress to your weight" articles are useless in Wang's idea of a woman, we can dress baggy and comfy, we can do body-con, we can dress like skaters, we can do anything with our clothing.
