Stepping into Alexander Wang’s colossal show space on the West Side Highway, one can always feel the excitement and curiosity. What tricks will he have up his sleeve? Well, this time, Gisele, according to breathless tweets. The supe would headline a special supermodel finale walk, joined by Shalom Harlow, Karolina Kurkova and Carmen Kass.
As for the clothes, it was immediately clear the Wang girl would once again be dressed almost exclusively in black, only more lacquered and laminated. Outerwear was the clear focus. Slick boxy coats were the star of the show, along with those knee-high patent boots, to Matrix-meets-dominatrix effect. Big puffer coats, front-slit leather skirts and body-hugging mini-dresses were also tossed in the mix.
The models, who walked with more purpose than usual, almost looked like secret ninjas, complete with black and white mesh face masks—fitting, since Ninja and a tiny, gold-swathed Yo-Landi Vi$$er from the South African rave-rap crew Die Antwoord were sitting front row.
