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.
