Alexander Wang’s 48-look F/W 2014 collection was fiercely strong willed and, unsurprisingly, entirely Brooklyn. Look 19 exuded a particular edge: Model Hedvig Palm donned a pair of Wang’s black leather, over-the-knee “kneepad” boots and a stitched, black leather, zip-front dress with green accenting. A navy knit jacket, meant to emulate the mesh of an athletic penny, and with fur detailing around the shoulders, pockets, sleeves, cuffs, and collar, topped off the look as an ironic sportswear nod to the kneepads. Fit for fighting off villains in an apocalypse, or strutting down a particularly hostile NYC avenue, the above Wang look celebrates femininity in all its bad ass glory.
