Supermodels graced the runways at the Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2012 show. Karolina, Shalom, Joan, Natasha, Carmen, Karmen, Frankie, and Gisele all ended the show in the closing segment. Having Gisele closing this season left many to wonder if a campaign is in the works.
This season featured looks that were a lot more refined and less sportswear than what we usually see from Alexander Wang. There were coats and leather galore as well as mesh ski masks to help kill the chill when the next winter season hits again. You can see the looks from the collection below.
Rihanna was caught on her way out of Whisky Mist nightclub in London, England. She wore a Givenchy shirt with a pair of Alexander Wang Leather Cummerbund Trackpants. This whole look is amazing. I love that everything was kept slouchy, but dressed up with the shoes.
I especially love the pants and jacket. They are some really great pieces that I think can be worn everyday and comfortably. Sometimes the clothing Rihanna wears tends to be very out there and uncomfortable, but these don’t. You can click here to purchase these pants at the Alexander Wang website for $1250.

The Alexander Wang show this season was all about graphics. Everything from the prints to the backdrop (one of the best I have seen). He also had the return of Hilary Rhoda to the runway at his Spring 2012 show. The show featured looks that were inspired by athleticism. They had looks that ranged from motocross to golf to swim. Not much was left out.
He also kept with the trends of this season. There were florals (something new for Alexander), perforation/eyelets, paneling, and color blocking. There are quite a few pieces that I favor from this season. The sweaters in particular. I just love the print on them. They have a graphic, tribal feel to them. I also think the leggings are going to be a popular one. Another thing that was amazing was the leather dress on Liya Kebede. That is going to be worn by someone on the red carpet. The white dress on Britt Maren is also a lovely one that is just asking for a magazine cover. You can click through a few of the looks below.
Zoe Kravitz did a little feature in Wonderland Magazine. Zoe wore a pair of Alexander Wang jeans for the shoot which they paired with a Versace crop top. When I saw these, I was like “What is wrong with these?” But seeing the way they styled them I think they look cool. I love the way they look cuffed. Even with the crop top is looks cool.
I hope to get some more sightings of Zoe. I have been fond of her style ever since her first feature of Teen Vogue. Plus her parents are Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, so she is destined to have natural cool style. I hope to see her in the Wang vest with the silver foil. She would look great in that.
