We've already talked about the mayhem at Kanye's Yeezy Season 3 event on Thursday, but an equally hot ticket at New York Fashion Week this season was Alexander Wang.  Wang's Fall 2016 line was a strong follow-up to his explosive 10th anniversary collection, revealed last season.  In keeping with the brand's youthful, urban vocabulary, Wang opted for peacoats with bomber sleeves, graphic tees, beanies, and distressed denim, while also playing up a punk-inspired element that we've seen him play with in recent collections.  On the runway, Alexander Wang muses like Soo Joo Park and Anna Ewers were treated to a warm neutral makeup palette by NARS artist Diane Kendal, suited to the laid-back feeling of the collection.  The effect?  Wang rules New York Fashion Week for yet another season (sorry, Yeezy.)

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
