Another success for Alexander Wang: His spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection. Besides the simple color scheme (black, white, grey and silver) there was nothing simple about this show. Wang carefully deconstructed his garments to a point that they looked as if they were floating on the models. He took cut-outs to the next level by slicing the dresses up and defying gravity.
Some very sporty-looking slouchy silhouettes are featured as well as very feminine dresses that look like they are specifically constructed for the model’s body. The futuristic styling and the sliced-up dresses contributed to a sci-fi feel maybe a little too outrageous for a Ready-to-Wear collection, but the cool cuts make it more wearable. Plus.. it’s Alexander Wang.
Lights out and.. Magic!

For two days now I’ve been a citizen of Amsterdam. I’ve already explored my neighborhood and tomorrow I’m going to see even more of this beautiful city since my school will give me and my fellow students an introduction to Amsterdam.
I was lucky enough to find a place in the centre but the downside to not living in a student residence is that there is no Internet and I will have to find a way to remedy my situation soon. For now I’m depending on wifi zones and hotspots, which has actually been nice because I’ve been forced to walk around and have already discovered some nice places to go.
Sorry for the hiatus (it may go on for a couple of days) but I’ll try to find a way to keep you posted.
In the meantime here’s a detail of today’s outfit..
One of my big weaknesses is for TV shows. I watch a lot of them. I recently made a discovery of something absolutely brilliant. It’s a relatively new HBO show called Girls. It is centered around four twenty-something girls living their lives in New York. They are in this in-between time of their lives, having finished college but not having found themselves just yet.
It will make you think of Sex and the City because of all the sex and women issues but these girls are younger, therefore way more disoriented and they are very real. I know people who are like them and I can see myself in every one of the four characters.
There’s Hannah, the quirky, insecure and very intelligent aspiring writer (the actress playing Hannah, Lena Dunham, is actually the creator of the show). Marni, a beautiful, egocentric girl who doesn’t like to lose control. Jessa, the british hipster with no inhibitions and absolutely clueless about her future – I guess she’d like to do something artistic. Shoshanna knows all about Sex and the City, but still hasn’t had sex. She describes herself like this: “a carrie at heart, but sometimes Samantha comes out and at school I try to put on my Miranda hat”.
Intelligent, realistic comedy. A must! Watch here.
