Where everyone wanted to be was the fabulously wrecked, abandoned, and peeling RKO Hamilton Theater somewhere way, way north of any other New York Fashion Week goings-on. Why? Two words: Alexander Wang.
The fall 2017 ready-to-wear show opened up the same way a rock concert would—dimmed lights, booming music, booze galore (Peroni sponsored the event). And then out came a parade of heavy-eyelinered girls and leather on leather on leather. Count on A. Wang to remix the business suit (he showed us a blazer-sweatshirt hybrid) and catsuit (less DC Comics and more party girl aesthetic). Oh, and let’s not forget the leopard lace.
