Alexander Wang Resort 2010

NEW YORK, June 4, 2009

Alexander Wang's latest Resort collection isn't completely devoid of black party dresses, but they certainly play a more minor role than they have in seasons past. The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner chalked up his newfound interest in all-American sportswear—think chinos, chambray, denim, and T-shirts—to his experience collaborating with the Gap. (That mini-collection hits the retail chain's stores on June 16, ladies.) Naturally, Wang put his own downtown-cool spin on his Resort classics, pairing an almost-preppy nautical stripe sweater with a wrap skirt in midnight blue sequins or tweaking a traditional fisherman's vest into a satin and mesh romper. As for those black dresses, the designer had quality if not quantity: The best of the bunch was a draped and wrapped number that exposes a lot of leg and nails the elusive dressed-up yet effortless vibe that Wang has so successfully made his signature.

All of these outfits are casual chic, simple, yet pretty with nude/earth tones. Can't wait for the warm weather to arrive!!
