Alexander Wang Fall-Winter 2024

Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2024

Alexander Wang's Fall/Winter 2024 collection is a bold and unapologetic return to form. It's a celebration of his brand's DNA - downtown cool, edgy leather, and a hint of rebellion - all reimagined for a new generation.
June 8, 2024

Alexander Wang is back, and he’s not pulling any punches. The designer presented a provocative and energetic show at his SoHo boutique, now transformed into the aptly named ‘’Garage.’’

The scene was set before the first model walked the runway. Guests were greeted by a deconstructed den of iniquity, complete with piles of fake money, tanning beds and an electric fireplace adorned with a car hood. This playful subversion hinted at the core of the collection – a bold reinterpretation of Wang’s signature downtown cool aesthetic.

The clothes themselves were a masterclass in Wang’s design language: sexy, skin-baring and dominated by luxurious leather. Studs adorned everything from jackets and pants to shoes and headdresses, a clear homage to his iconic “Rocco” bag, revived and renamed the “Ricco” for Fall/Winter 2024. Denim, another Wang mainstay, took a backseat this season, replaced by a focus on leather bombers, asymmetrical crocodile dresses and thigh-high wader boots.

Comfort wasn’t forgotten. Wang acknowledged the post-pandemic shift toward loungewear with roomy leather tracksuits and a bustier paired with a flowing sweatshirt skirt. He also offered dressier options, with stretch jersey transformed into flared leggings and peek-a-boo cut-out dresses. Origami blazers added a touch of sophistication.

The show was also a performance. Models charged their phones, chatted with each other, and even stopped to pose dramatically for fans. For the finale, Omahyra, a Wang regular, stomped down the runway in a white bandage dress, a modern take on a downtown fashion mummy. As he took his final bow, Wang himself smashed a glass table in a defiant gesture, a clear message that he’s here to stay.
