Alexander Wang unveils swimwear for the street savvy triathlete in resort collection. Vogue reports:
“We were inspired by competitive swimmers, cyclists, and girls prepping for marathons,” he said at today’s primary-colored presentation, where perforated track vests, patchwork windbreakers, and utility track pants (accessorized with heeled sneaker-sandals) were skillfully translated for his urban loyalists.
The athletic references are easy to spot; the collection features shiny, over-sized windbreakers, mesh racing-style vests, and a plethora of primary colors.
Yes, scuba references surfaced here, as they have at other labels this month. In fact, Wang did some of the most covetable swimsuits we’ve seen anywhere, in bold solids with racy cutouts that were echoed in his dresses.
