AlexanderWangDillonBlack 540x273 Alexander Wang Dillon Sneaker

Alexander Wang’s “Dillon” sneakers are now available for purchase on his site. This black version was just offered as part of a “12 Days Of Gifting” holiday promotion. The Dillon is priced at $385–what do you think, ladies, can the Dillon kicks get it or would you rather save your pennies for Isabel Marant’s Spring 2012 line up of kicks (though good look finding them anywhere)?

See the grey version on the next page.

H&M x ‘Girl With Dragon Tattoo

HMGirlWithTattoo 540x348 H&M x Girl With Dragon Tattoo

H&M is partnering on a capsule collection with the costume designer, Trish Summerville (that’s her in the above image front and center with the blonde mohawkish hair), for the flick Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which opens in December. In the fashion world the movie has already received quite a bit of buzz because Rooney Mara one of the actresses appearing in the movie was featured on the cover of Vogue’s November issue.

As for the collection, it has that Alexander Wang/Balmain, downtown rock ‘n’ roll feel to it, which is hardly new, even for H&M, and yet it’s still a bit of a watershed moment to see this look officially packaged to go mass.

 Alexander Wang Open Toe Luisa Booty

Just took a look at Alexander Wang’s Autumn 2011 shoes offerings, and am seeing some sizes already sold out. I reallly liked this lovely shoe called the “Luisa.” It features an open toe and silver printed lambskin combined with kidskin and is for female super heroes only.

Alexander Wang Interviewed By Simon Doonan For Barney’s

26 September 2011, 18.02 | Posted in Designer news, Retail, Steal From The Boys | No comments »

Alexander Wang’s menswear collection recently had its exclusive launch at Barney’s, and the department store’s creative ambassador (interesting title!), Simon Doonan, had a chat with Wang on the offerings and who he had in mind as a customer when he created his designs. But the most revealing part of the interview is not about the clothes but the conditioner Wang uses to keep his locks so enviably luxurious. According to Wang he doesn’t use conditioner and appears to be a part of the anti-shampoo brigade, opting for a brand called No-Poo.  Such a Downtowner at heart that Wang is.

Alexander Wang x Starbucks

 Alexander Wang x Starbucks

Alexander Wang collaborated with Starbucks on a tee shirt, which is now available for purchase on Starbucks in multiple sizes for $85 (see above as worn by model seemingly very sad-faced about the coffee stain on her shirt). Starbucks initiated the idea as part of its 40-year anniversary celebration and reached out to three CFDA winners to create a design. Here’s what Wang had to say about the project:

“When Starbucks and the CFDA approached us with this project, the first thing we thought of what everyone tries to avoid—spilled coffee on a t-shirt. This turned into the design, hoping people would have fun with it.”

Billy Reid and Sophie Theallet also did tees. Interesting how Starbucks is trying to get all up into the fashion mix.
