Alexander Wang adds to his empire

default

It doesn't rain, it pours for designer du jour Alexander Wang. In the last six months, he has won the much coveted CFDA Fashion Fund award, launched his diffusion line – T by Alexander Wang – become a fashion darling, and now word reaches us that he is launching his first menswear collection. Perhaps he's following in the big black boots of Gareth Pugh, who last week debuted his menswear, which was very well received in Paris. But rather than Pugh's big sci-fi shapes, we are expecting luxe sportswear, perfect jersey pieces and the soon-to-be new must-have fashion trainers (well, have you seen his women's shoes? Amazing). Wang's eyes are focused on launching the collection for spring 2010, so watch this space.
