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.

Alexander Wang made his mark here on DenimBlog mostly due to his Denim/Leather jacket that was spotted on many of the celebrity hipsters. I think it is about time that he starts making a new statement with this new style he has out right now.
Here is his new Foil Denim Vest. It is a light-washed denim that features silver “foil” detailing throughout the jacket. I think this style is a great one and hope to see his followers rocking it soon. I also think this is one that should not be kept in a light blue wash. It will also look great in white and gray. You can click here to purchase this vest at Diavolina for $550.
Lindsay Lohan was snapped making her way to her first public appearance after being sentenced for violating her probation. Lindsay was heading to a taping of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Although Lindsay has yet to go to trial for allegedly stealing a necklace, she was sentenced to 120 days in jail plus 480 hours of community service for violating her probation.
I’ve always loved Lindsay’s Alexander Wang denim and leather jacket, so I’m glad to see her out in it again. It definitely is a unique and timeless piece. I’m not a huge fan of how she’s styled it most recently but you can see all the ways she’s styled it before here.
