What in the WANG is HAPPENING HERE?!??!!

ALEXANDER WANG  F/W 2010

Help me to understand this.
Now, if you read this here blog, you know I have never been an A Wang lover, really. 
There are moments that I do deeply dig; a pre-fall look here, a bag there..and surprisingly, MOST of S/S 2010 collection (grey sweatshirt lurve) but this? This is some bullshit right here. 
What is this? Am I actually looking at a thigh high-biz caszh pant-legwarmer? What in the fuck. I am 
not sure what to start on with the trompe-lace silk contempo casual situation happening ABOVE the thighpants. 

I can't with this.

I almost barfed on my screen except then I saw something that got me hyperventrilicating:

 

FRONT ROW CHANEL CLOGS! Ohmahgah, where is the left one and can I see them both NOW? (Sidenote: Is that Alexa Chung? Why do I envision her as the only person who owns those shoes?). 

Anyways- Can we get these thangs a twitter feed? www.twitter.com/chanelclogz...FOLLOWED. FOR LIFE.
Sweet lord almighty I want those clodhoppers more than anything. It's bordering on insane (I decide where the border is, not YOU).

Sigh.

Ok sorry, where was I?

TO SUM UP: 
A.WANG ENSEMBLE = BARFY
C.CLOG CAMEO = DREAMWEAVER

So glad we talked.

for real, this post just made my life. people need to crawl out of alexander wang's butt and realize that his collections are not perfection. (and i would follow chanelclogz as well. asap. instantaneously.)

laia. said...

T-Bonz said...

I was so bummed out when I looked at this collection today. truly. I love me some Wang and I was just sort of liike...ummmm....nooo. no thank you.

Hazel said...

THANK YOU for posting this! When I first saw that I was like, "umm...heh? wah? um. ok..."

oh and maybe Tavi knows who that person is

fashiongrunge said...

i thought this collection was just so far from what he showed the last 2 fall seasons which I happened to love. Needless to say I won't be buying anything from this collection.

Lizzifer said...

Not that there is anything wrong with it, but I don't think any of the AW F/W models washed their hair for several months before the show.

NJames said...

I'd like to co-sign on this!

There has got to be a Wang/Chung joke in there somewhere... Good job gurl, couldn't agree more!

WendyB said...

I adore clogs.

Wang is just not my style.

Rosé Magritte said...

This is amazing.

Also, suggestion: whydontcha photoshop a Chanel clog into every picture of a shitty collection (aka EVERYTHING BALMAIN) just to make it more tolerable

who needs pepto bismol when there's Chanel clogs?

TEXTSTYLES said...

someone told wang to stop with the tees and try DESIGNING...
this is what we get.
urgh.

loves.
you.

Agent Lover said...

This is the only kind of Wang I will say no to.

firefly said...

I liked the top of the ...outfit, but I thought the legwarmers were socks?!? What is the thing behind her?

nookie said...

I didn't like the collection either...bleah:)

Jazzi McG said...

LOVE you!

Emilie said...

Sometimes I feel like designers are like 'well if I make this new and strange people will dig it'. Even though this is kind of just strange. It's not really artistic in any way (or maybe to Wang this is some sort of divinely inspired ensemble?). To me it's pretty horrific. The shoes are sick though, agreed.

fadetoblack said...

i dunno... i think the greasy matted hair in you face will catch on no?
haaaaaaaaa

but seriously why have i never found your blog before??

I am shocked.. and you are awesome!

RAH-RAH said...

Hahaha oh my lord the NO. (and everything else you said) made me pee a little bit. You must have that shit on radar how did you even NOTICE the tiny little Chanel clog in that picture?
AMAZING!

Meggstatus said...

I am so glad someone finally said this. What about the hideous suits int this collection. Reminded me of a horrible design school project.

Gabby said...

AHAHA YES

dL said...

Um, you totally read my mind -- even the titles to our posts are practically the same. Bad Wang! Bad!

MarishkaRI0tkhsiram said...

Gah. Alexander Wang. I wasn't a big fan of his S/S collection either.. but my! Those clogs are lurvleh :O

Morning Cloak said...

You are hilarious and refreshing.

Mona N. said...

This is why I follow your blog. You speak my mind and see more than I ever could (think clogs)!

vickileestyle said...

this blog post made me laugh :)

BUT

i have to disagree! this is the only wang collection i've loved! that's not their best outfit worn by karlie kloss but how can you hate their red velvet jackets and long knee high socks over the shoes, it's beautiful!

josie said...

You had me at "NO"! I agree, the thigh highs looks like she's sellin on Grand Avenue and Indian School. I will be right over with the Chanel clogs. What did you think of Lagerfield's copy cat of what Madame Chanel already did with the red, white and blue crotched emblellishment gowns in the Met. Museum. I am seeing now just with higher skirts. He needs to step out a little wider don't you think? http://lara-serbin.blogspot.com/

Christina said...

Oh yeah. Shit is GROSS, son! This whole collection was a marketing ploy - catering to teen girls who've just discovered the 90's so they'll continue to buy his $100 drapey tanks.

bleh!
