Alexander Wang | News

Alexander Wang’s latest collection is available to pre-order, giving us an early insight into what it costs to create a coat out of heat-sensitive (or, as Wang calls it, “thermo-reactive”) fabric.

The coats – which start off a dull green-brown, but become a vibrant yellow, lime, blue or purple when exposed to heat – will retail at $7,995, with a $3,998 deposit required to pre-order. The heat-sensitive skirt and top suit – worn by Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Anne V, among others at the show – begin at $2,550, and all look similar until their underlying colour is revealed.

John Galliano Series, 5 of 6

A John Galliano show – whether for Christian Dior or his own collection – is guaranteed to be an over-the-top display of his imaginative vision. And the experience is not limited to the spectacular clothes sent down the runway, for nearly as delightful to witness are the intricately executed, masterfully thought-out ensembles Galliano wears for his final bows. One gets the sense that nearly as much work and planning goes into them as goes into the entire collection.

Throughout the years, he’s dressed as a matador, Edward Scissorhands, and even an astronaut. He’s never the same, but he’s always John.
