WHAT WE THOUGHT: One has to hand it to Alexander Wang: He never falters in his vision. The boy wonder has deftly crafted his own brand of cool, which is so popular that later this week in New York, he opens a 4,500 square foot flagship. With so much retail space to fill, fortunately Wang has lived up to the hype with this collection.

Wang worked a mostly monotone palette - save for the glittery blue and pink stovepipe jeans - and included lots of innovative tuxedo-inspired attire. The all-blush looks were sweet but not saccharine. An angora sweater was slashed up the side, and long silk skirts and dresses resembled shredded ribbon.
