Ugh, Die Antwoord. The South African band-cum-performance-art-project just bugs the crap out of me. It’s kind of “Gummo” for the 2010s, isn’t it? The way they mug around with stupid haircuts trying to be transgressive and weird. Well, tiny little Yolandi Visser and her partner in crime, Ninja, have just been tapped as the new faces of Alexander Wang. We should have seen this coming: their new video, “I Fink U Freeky” (don’t watch if you are at all rat or bug squeamish, trust), features the duo in Wang jumpsuits. [Pedestrian.Tv]
There is a commercial that plays often in the New York area for a local, super upscale, chic-chic bowling alley. In the commercial there’s a pretty girl wearing hot-ass leather shorts and a high-collared shirt going on a bowling date with a very attractive floppy-haired dude and I always think, Wow, that bowling alley is really going for the cool hipster contingent. And then I think that perhaps that term has been angled and destroyed and co-opted by the mainstream so much that it’s actually meaningless. And then I think: I really need to turn off the TV. Anyway! These Alexander Wang leather mini-shorts with lapel pockets pretty much approximate the ones the cute girl in the commercial wears, but will these shorts land you a floppy-haired man of your dreams? All signs point to … the Man Panel. Click to see their thoughts after the jump! Keep reading »
When is the last time you went bare midriff-style? (The beach doesn’t count.) We’re guessing it was sometime when “Felicity” was still on the air. This knit crop top by Alexander Wang is taking us back down wardrobe memory lane … but we’re not so sure this look is hot anymore. Or if it ever was. What say you? [Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »
The hair on our heads demands enough attention … but with these Alexander Wang goat fur booties, you’d also have to tend to your shoe hair. No thanks. [Net-A-Porter] Keep reading »
A couple weeks ago we debuted a new feature, “Ask The Man Panel,” wherein we solicit guys’ opinions on clothing and fashion trends. We kicked things off with a $6,000 Marie Antoinette-inspired shoe, and today we showed them this, um, unique outfit from Alexander Wang, which includes a $600 hooded romper and a model who seems to be suffering from severe depression.
Let’s see what the men had to say … Keep reading »
- That Alexander Wang/Nike rumor? Not so true. They were in talks, but the deal never happened. Bummer. Guess if you still want Alex Wang sweats, you’re going to have to pay runway prices. [The Cut]
- While one New York Times writer admitted earlier this week that the designer collabs and Zaras of the world make her shopping crazed, attendees of the World Apparel Convention in Hong Kong worried that “fast fashion” is killing fashion. [Just Style]
- Ruh-roh. How did an Yves Saint Laurent belt make it into a Chloé ad? [Fashionista]

The latest in the designer collab rumor mill? Alexander Wang may be doing a collaboration with Nike. The only details out about it is that a “very credible source” says it’s true, which, uhhh … anyhow. Let’s just for a minute imagine the possibilities. Affordable Alex Wang sweats? We might actually be into sweating in them and unafraid to get them dirty. We’ll be staying tuned on this particular collaboration for sure.

Alexander Wang makes a clutch disguised as a notebook for fashionable writers. Wait—since when can writers afford to drop $625 on an accessory? [Shopbop] Keep reading »
Wow, a Terry Richardson photo that doesn’t creep us out! Something tells me Zoe and her dad would have none of Terry’s pervy shenanigans. [The YBF] Keep reading »
A lot of our internet time here at The Frisky is dedicated to watching shoe porn. Call us pervs, but there’s nothing like a sleek pair of heels on a Monday morning to make the work week feel a little more bearable. At the top of our radar right now are Alexander Wang’s fall ’10 shoes. Aside from a couple foibles — like these and these — there’s not a pair of artfully deconstructed, interestingly shaped kicks we wouldn’t wear. Our favorites are the ankle boots at left with their textured toe area and rabbit fur heel detailing. They’re expensive as hell, of course, but if you find six crisp Benjamins laying in a gutter, you won’t be disappointed with these. [$578, Alexander Wang, Oak] Keep reading »
