1. Lots of sheerly clad skin, the sensuality of which collided against the girlish full skirts, collared shirts, and Mary Janes used throughout the collection. Sometimes the child-like silhouettes, like the metallic A-line skirt and matching jacket, felt very serious, while a jacket paired with semi-opaque tights came across more reckless and carefree than sexual, amounting to a sort of transitional coming of age story.

  3. Wang always has incredibly cool details, like next spring’s graphic stripe patterns, masculine rounded shoulders, and structured construction modeled after football padding. The focus on tapered trousers was more traditional than usual, but the bold colors standing out from black and white gave the collection an athletic edge.

  5. It might have something to do with the shoot styling, but these looks seem like they would be just as appropriate on a California party girl as they would on a Connecticut hostess entertaining a dinner party. Some pieces felt a little forced, like the overbearing sculpted leather jackets, but overall the looks were very clean. Founded on structured volume and altered with movement in mind to make the collection equal parts refined and relaxed.

  6. No extra bells and whistles, this collection is strictly uniform pieces - collared shirts, pants, and skirts - made special by on-trend silhouettes like boxy cropped pants, long tops and jackets, and thrown-together layering.

  7. Pagan symbology is something we haven’t seen a lot of recently (as opposed to darker occult motifs.) Here, moon and star details are accentuated by mystical latticework beading and contradistinctively pure, white shirting. My favorite leather collection to date.

  8. Lots of airy, natural lightness alongside the drama of evening wear. The techniques for layering are unexpected and the incorporation of metallics, satin, and lace manage to tie the structured jackets and blouses together with the rawer knotted and draped pieces.

  9. This is a great example of what happens when you apply minimalism to a concept. Using over-simplified versions of stylistic details (here we see oversized buckles and outlined flap pockets) gives you a pared down iteration of the military theme.

  10. A counter-intuitive collection from the moody, earthy spring palette to suiting and lace fabrics paired with slouchy knits. It’s genius. The bohemian, tossed-on styling and inspired layering (particularly dresses over midi skirts and cropped pants) are in the spirit of necessity - getting creative with a limited wardrobe when times are tough.
