Alexander Wang x Gentle Monster Fall/Winter 2018
The Alexander Wang x Gentle Monster collaboration debuted at the designer’s last New York Fashion Week show. The duo showcased their pieces like a boss.
Alexander Wang previously announced that he will no longer be showing at NYFW. Instead, he will present his collections during June and December.
The move intends to combine the pre-collection and main collection into one. Ultimately, this divides the brand’s products into monthly deliveries from October to March and April to September. Moreover, it shortens the wait from runway to release.
“Our customer will be better served through the new system,” CEO Lisa Gersh said in a statement. “The innovative approach reframes product on the month that it ships, rather than the outdated labels of ‘resort’ or ‘pre-fall,’ giving our customers more relevant and consistent merchandise throughout the year.”
The collaboration showed Wang putting the focus on corporate attire. Models like Kaia Gerber, Natalie Westling, Songhwa Oh, Sora Choi, and Selena Forrest wore the office-ready outfits in the show.
Wang reimagined blazers into little black dresses. On the other hand, athleisure outfits take on the glam side with faux fur details and glittery heels.
The designer also unveiled his eyewear collaboration with Gentle Monster, a Korean label. It features mirrored lenses to retro, mini frames.
