ALEXANDER WANG throws a reckless party in a Los Angeles mansion for a wild Wang campaign
BY MARISSA TORSIELLO
Alexander Wang released his #WANGF16 campaign film directed by Director X, complete with an epic party in a lavish LA estate, combining an affluent lifestyle with a downtown group that drink out of a bottle rather than a teacup. Decked out in the collection, they steal from a wine cellar and drive around in golf carts, to an upbeat Skrillex song to match their moods. This super fluent and opulent location really sets the stage for the designer’s grunge fall collection.
The combination of musicians and models featured in the film all induce the brand’s standard laid-back New York aesthetic. With celebrities such as Kylie Jenner and Big Sean as part of the #WangSquad, this massive party even received a visit from Alexander Wang himself, cameoed as a delivery guy.
The setting of this film reminds us of The Bling Ring, capturing kids getting rowdy in a gigantic mansion, finished with a floor-to-ceiling bar. Bringing the on-trend line to life in a short film really invigorates us to pop open a bottle of champagne and join Alexander Wang and the Wang Squad, the new arbiter’s of cool for the youthful.
