Alexander Wang Expands #WANGSQUAD For Autumn/Winter 2016
Video: Alexander Wang.
In the latest Alexander Wang #WANGSQUAD video campaign, a star-studded cast – Kylie Jenner, A$AP Ferg, Vince Staples, Zoe Kravitz, and ESSENTIAL HOMME October/November 2015 cover star Tinashe – run amuck in an opulent mansion, throwing a decadent party where a carefree, youthful energy pulsates against the thumping bass. Each squad-member is decked out in the brand’s new Autumn/Winter 2016 collection, a colorful and graphic range made from a slew of materials including mohair, angora, and lambskin. Skrillex, who appears in the video wearing a black collage artwork sweatshirt featuring street art prints, mixes beats as Metro Boomin, donning a camel-colored shearling jacket, eats noodles delivered by Wang himself. Tyga, wearing a pink collage t-shirt and gold chains, swigs champagne in a bathtub, while Jenner dances before him in a camisole knit dress. The urban-inspired and graphic collection is a new direction for Wang, who is known for sleek, oversized, and grayscale designs. The brand launched the #WANGSQUAD campaign this past spring, which featured similar clips of artists and models partying in New York City clubs, bodegas, and subway stations. Wang, once again, brings the squad and the party to the evolving fashion season.
The Alexander Wang Autumn/Winter 2016 collection is available online now.
