First Dibs: Balenciaga by Alexander Wang Look 7

Published March 1, 2013

Well, it finally happened; Alexander Wang debuted his first Balenciaga collection in Paris, and the fashion gods are rejoicing. Impeccably tailored trousers, cropped voluminous jackets, sheer lace pants, and peplums characterized the simple and chic collection. While Wang stuck to a classic black and white color palette, occasional marble-patterned pieces appeared on the runway as well, rounding out the collection. Our favorite outfit has to be the above Look 7: a perfectly proportioned, black, cut-out dress with a single, statement safety pin; paired with heeled suede boots and a box-frame bag. The cut is unassuming and sexy—a rare combination—providing an effortless look on the streets or at a soirée.
