Just too damn cool.

Monsieur Alexander Wang produced a classic, nostalgic, minimal and very convincing debut collection for the history house of Christobal Balenciaga. A heavily black infused palette marked the Spring 2014 menswear show, also filled with copious lashings of leather. There was undoubtedly a luxurious edge, with the immaculate cut and fit of each of the looks making for an overall collection of simply, great tailoring.balenciaga aAlexander Wang's mark as a designer can still be felt within the collection's pieces, for example the sleeveless white shirt fitted with only one button, left to swing open (at ones joy or peril). It was a crisp and sharp showing, with semi-relaxed pant teamed with jackets of the most futuristic opaque-plastic looking black materials, and others made of classic wool.

As chic as it was, we can't help but relate it to Stefano Pilai for YSL menswear. Very YSL circa Fall 2013, no?balenciaga b
