If you thought your squad was killing it, think again, Alexander Wang has come through and built a music heavy squad to envy - not only is it full of some of the most talented youngens in the game right now, but they're also dressed head to toe in the latest Wang collection of course. For a while now we've been teased with clips of a Mansion party like no other. We've seen glimpses of Skrillex, A$AP Ferg, Tinashe, Zoë Kravitz, Metro Boomin, Big Sean and some PDA from the likes of Tyga and Kylie Jenner, that's just to name a few of the starlets featured in the campaign because there's a heap of edgy models involved too. Have a look at some Polaroid shots of those who got a chance to be in Wang's Squad. You can also see one of the initial teaser videos posted to the Wang Squad Instagram which featured A$AP Ferg's "Strive" for them feel good fun vibes.
Here's the campaign teaser video with RL Grime's and Big Sean's "Kingpin" playing as the soundtrack below, while the full length clip uses music from Skrillex instead. In a statement, Wang said that "this collection is about deliberately blending innocence and rebellion, which fit perfectly with the campaign's extravagant setting, and challenging the traditional medium of a fashion campaign" so the video heavy campaign certainly sets the tone.
The full length campaign video includes pole dancing, a little girl on girl action, a samurai sword and late night munchies delivered to the mansion by Alexander Wang himself, so the youthful, rebellious edge to this campaign is definitely spurred on by the cast and the slogan printed clothing such as "Girls, girls girls", "violation" and "strict" across fuzzy pink crop tops and hoodies, mesh tees and bleach splattered dresses. The clothing for the fall/winter ready to wear collection does have some elements of tailored fits with the winter coats and wide leg trousers, however Alexander Wang's famous sporty elements still subtly peek through with comfy jumpers and beanie hats. The print which is featured across quite a few pieces is the "leaf motif" (I mean, we all know its weed guys) which is beautifully cut into silk and mesh evening dresses and printed in floor length women's coats - playing on the very fun and unruly feel of the campaign. The mix of comfortability, in with items that transfer into evening wear works well for the young campaign, It appears that the clothing was made for mansion parties with rappers and DJ's after all, so comfort is key.
