“DESIGNER DETAILS” — Lori LaVentura
The rebel who is known for all black ensembles broke all of his barriers and went for the Miami color scene. Fashion’s new badass is Alexander Wang. With pulled back wet hair and heavy eyeliner, Alexander Wang’s spring collection was a showstopper. His perfect ensemble consists of boyfriend shorts, bra top and men’s inspired blazer. Don’t forget my favorite spring trend to finish it off any outfit with his platform fringe shoes. Alexander is an up-and-coming designer who knows how to fit styles to a woman’s body-simple designs with an edge are his specialty. My personal favorite is Wang’s suede and leather motorcycle jacket with fold-over collar and off the center zipper closure retails for $1,495. It’s pricy, but wearing this jacket takes you from plain-Jane to a head-turner. His simple supima cotton and marble silk printed tanks range from $65 to $276, a more pleasing price to a tight wallet like mine. I am keeping an eye on Alexander Wang because I know he will have more surprises for us in the near future.
