It's Wang's World (We're just living in it)

I find it quite interesting that in Kingdom of Hollywood we have “It girls” yet in the realm of Sartorial operations we have “It Boys.” We all remember the era of Marc Jacobs followed by performances from Zac Posen and Proenza Schouler. Yet now that these designers have graduated from student to teacher it’s Alexander Wang that’s filling their place. Which is why my mild obsession with Alexander Wang’s new diffusion line is so understandable, if not justified. It’s street chic, loose and effortless aesthetic speaks to the urbanite in all of us (even if we do live in suburbia). I mean how can you not feel a bit dangerous wearing something like this:

Let's just hope "It boy" ensembles don't make me pull a Lindsay and start dancing on tabletops.
