FASHION UPDATES: Alexander Wang, “I have always loved London”

FASHION UPDATES: Alexander Wang,
Alexander Wang says, "I have always loved London." His first flagship store in the city has opened in Mayfair.
 
 

Goodbye Balenciaga, hello London. Fashion favorite Alexander Wang has opened his first London flagship store in Mayfair. We can't wait to pop into the retail space. The flagship store is set to offer an extensive selection of Wang's collections and accessories.

The new 6,700-square-foot retail space is located at 43-44 Albermarle Street in Mayfair. The store, which is in a former post office building, was designed by Belgium architect, Vincent van Duysen, and will carry the brand’s women’s and men’s ready-to-wear collections as well as accessories, T by Alexander Wang, and the OBJECTS collection.

Coming as no surprise, word has it that Wang has many more European stores on the horizon.

This is the 25th store opening for Alexander Wang and the first European flagship. Alexander Wang is available worldwide in over 700 retailers and operates its own e-commerce shipping to over 50 countries. "I have always loved London," said Wang. "I am so proud and excited to open my first European flagship store here." Expect more stores to open here and abroad should Wang’s talks with General Atlantic lead to an investment in his eponymous label.

FASHION FILM: Nick Knight, “Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969-2010.”


FASHION FILM: Nick Knight,
Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969 - 2010. A fashion film by Nick Night
 

 

Nick Knight brings us more Alexander McQueen in the form of a short film, "Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969 - 2010." The recent Savage Beauty exhibit reignited our appreciation of the designer's work (as our Instagram followers know). We only managed to see the show a few times and were sad to see it close. Even as the fashion world changes and evolves, McQueen's vision remains singularly brilliant and complex.

Knight, together with filmmaker Younji Ku and art director Jon Emmony, has created a montage of ShowStudio’s archive footage of the late Lee Alexander McQueen’s creations, for a film called "Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969-2010." Knight has taken footage of some of McQueen’s most striking looks — among them a red feathered dress from his spring 2001 show, and a sculptural hound’s tooth outfit from his fall 2009 collection — and has heightened the looks’ impact by distorting the footage and embellishing it with 3-D animation.

FASHION VIDEO: Kenzo Fall/Winter 2014 with Music and Set Design by David Lynch

From Humberto Leon & Carol Lim

David Lynch has proven to be one of the most interesting and insightful directors, artists and musicians of our time. His imagination and ingenuity can stimulate forgotten emotions through his canny use of whatever medium he chooses. Following our men's and pre-fall collections earlier this year, the KENZO women's Fall-winter 2014 collection is the crescendo in a trilogy of collections inspired by his oeuvre. Working with him on the set design and music for this show, we find ourselves drawn into the head of the creator, and explore the various beautiful, idiosyncratic and elliptical characters he dreamt up for his myriad of works. We delve into the body of pieces which have portrayed love, revenge, the strange and mysterious with equal candor.

David Lynch : "I really liked working with Humberto, Carol and the people at KENZO. I wanted to try to get a different feel for a runway show, having mystery and emotion swimming together."

LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN: Spring/Summer 2015 Recap

Designers and press both are saying that menswear is changing so fast that the latest spring/summer 2015 collections have been difficult to define or categorize. For this city's embracing of the new, the eccentric, the radical, we’ve loved London fashion forever. For London Collections: Men spring/summer 2015 we were enthusiastic about a number of collections:

Moschino. The humor. Jeremy Scott proves master of play and titillation by riffing on our obsession with logos and branding. Similar to what MIA did for her collaboration with Versace. Scott’s Fauxschino emerged as an affectionate jab at knock-off fashion. We’re long-time fans of Jeremy Scott, and his work at Moschino keeps us wanting more.
