Alexander Wang capsule collection
Alexander Wang is re-releasing some of his best selling clothes from the last 10 years as part of a special capsule collection. One of the items is the draped jersey dress from Spring 2009. This was probably one of my favorites from Alexander Wang, it is the same season my tulip skirt came out. And the same time I bought my very own draped jersey dress.
I love everything about this dress. The Alexander Wang capsule collection features a black one, but I love this color. It's kind of a mix between eggplant and burgundy. The fabric is really nice as well, and because it's Rayon, it can be washed.
And it doesn't hurt that Blake Lively wore it in Gossip Girl, although I found out about this after the fact. I love watching TV and yelling out "That's my dress!"
The dress has a ton of criss-cross draping, which is really flattering on any body shape. I especially love the one arm detail. It just gives the dress some edge that is still very feminine. It makes the dress really stand out from the other LBDs or ordinary cocktail dresses. But it's still perfect for a night out.
Check out this Donna Karan dress if you like the color as much as I do. The criss-cross ruching really enhances the waist, and gives it just a bit of edge. This dress is more pink, but I love the asymmetrical top. Check out this dress too, it's a sweater dress perfect for fall, and the price is great ;)
If you're not crazy about the body-con look, I recommend another draped dress from Alexander Wang, this one more Grecian and regal.
I was so happy to hear that Alexander Wang released this collection. I love buying beautiful dresses, but obviously, a dress like this is a special occasion piece. I don't wear it very often. And although I felt like I definitely got my money's worth, it would have been nice to see more similar dresses in the future.
The capsule collection definitely reminds us of the gorgeous pieces designers released in the past. And it makes me feel good knowing I have good taste ;)
I chose some simple tan pumps to wear so that my leg looks longer, and doesn't take away from the drama of the dress. Anything more stylized would be a distraction. I love these Manolos, obviously, they're clean and sophisticated, and go with everything. I'm crazy about these Louboutins, too though. They are a bit higher, but still just classic enough to stay in style forever, but not boring. Check out these Steve Maddens as well, they're on sale!
In my opinion, Spring 2009 was one of the best seasons for Alexander Wang. I literally wanted to buy every single piece.
I am a little surprised none of his harness dresses made it into this collection, but I'm happy with what I got. I love Alexander Wang for his mix of classic and edge. It's exactly what I look for when putting together my outfits.
