Happy 10th anniversary, Alexander Wang! We toast a decade in style with our favourite looks
There aren’t many young professionals out there who, at 31-years-old, can celebrate a decade of ruling at the top of their industry. But then, Alexander Wang knows a thing or two about thumbing his nose at convention. At 19 he dropped out of the prestigious Parsons School of Design to focus all of his efforts on bringing his eponymous label to life, which he succeeded in doing a mere two years later.
Fast-forward to the present day, and the reigning king of NYC cool is commemorating his decennial anniversary in the biz with a capsule collection re-releasing his 10 most beloved pieces, as voted on by fans via social media (he is a millennial, after all). While polls were closed back in July, the winning looks were announced today and are, as expected, chalk full of Wang’s signature sporty, “off-duty model” aesthetic. But while they may be an accurate representation of the fashion darling’s oeuvre as a whole, one simply needs to glance through his body of work to realize exactly how many iconic looks this young prodigy has imagined over the years—far more than could ever be confined to a top 10 list.
However (never ones to shy away from a challenge), we thought we’d try our hand at determining our own top 10 list of Wang’s best looks. Join us on a stroll down memory lane as we take a look back at some of the designer’s best moments throughout the last 10 years.
