New York – For his spring/summer 2012 catwalk show at New York fashion week, Alexander Wang looked to BMX and Motocross for inspiration. The collection contrasts couture-style floral prints and silhouettes with sporty touches such as mesh, drawstrings and zips.
Pieces that particularly stood out included the Intarsia knit jumpsuits that reference racing car strips. The knit pattern creates jagged line edges that appear pixelated, using traditional methods to depict modern patterns, which LS:N Global explores further in our Az-tech Design Direction.
We believe this aesthetic will appeal to the always-on-the-go, fashion-conscious New Millennials for whom there is little distinction between work and play.
