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.

Riccardo Tisci | Nike

Riccardo Tisci has unveiled his debut collection for Nike: four pairs of trainers based upon the sport brand’s most celebrated style, the Air Force 1. With Chanel’s couture trainers unveiled one week ago and now Tisci’s new incarnation, sneakers have never looked so luxurious.

Riccardo Tisci is the Creative Director of Givenchy. He was educated at Central Saint Martins in London and worked for Puma before establishing his own line in 2004. It was his dark, sensual outlook that marked him out as someone unusual. “There’s something of the night in myself,” he said.

The new up-all-night uniform is paired down to a black bra and high-waist pants that are as chic on the street as they are on the dance floor.
