Introducing Alexander Wang at Tenue de Nîmes - 'React to Surprises in Life'
We are proud to announce we have the chance to work with one of the world’s most talented and gifted designers: Alexander Wang. Although Wang was born in San Francisco, California he moved to New York at the age of 18. He attended several internships in the Big Apple but started designing his own collection too about a year later. Wang launched his first full women’s line in 2007. In the years that followed Alexander Wang was rewarded several times and became Women’s and Men’s Wear designer of the year.
Alexander Wang recently launched a denim line by the name of Denim x Alexander Wang. The collection is a tribute to authentic denim and therefore consists of three wardrobe essentials (slim, relaxed and boy-friend), each in three basic washes. The Alexander Wang Denim line was supported by a special campaign by photographer Steven Klein featuring the fabulous Anna Ewers. Alexander Wang is always looking for the right balance between the authenticity of denim as well as re-contextualizing the ultimate urban uniform. Wang says about his love for denim:
“Denim has always been very personal to me, as I - as well as a lot of other people around me - wear it as part of their daily wardrobe. A lot of my friends alter non-stretch vintage denim. We wanted to translate that genuine sensibility but evolve and tweak the fit, to make it more feminine."
