The Alexander Wang Effect Hits Harvey Nichols






Who isn’t in love with Alexander Wang this season? Erin Wasson’s his muse and her street urchin meets rock goddess style really shines through in everything he designs. Through Alexander Wang us mere mortals, lacking those special supermodel credentials, get an easy 'in' to that laid back, undone, smart grunge thing they all nail so well. There’s been cat fights to get hold of his studded 'Coco' bag as every shop in London sold out the moment they hit (I blame Mary Kate Olsen, she’s the one who planted it on the 'It' bag radar) and I’ve been super jealous of my friend Hattie’s one too. Clever girl put her name on the list the moment it opened and then, to make matters worse, I bumped into an old room mate in Reiss at the weekend and there she was swinging her 'Donna' hobo freshly plucked from an Alex Wang sample sale in New York. NOT FAIR! Diverting my attention away from lush bags, it's now his cover ups stealing my thoughts as Harvey Nichols pop their Wang delivery online at shop.harveynichols.com this week. Anyone who can't appreciate the craft that’s gone into designing and making this biker jacket, these waistcoats and his beautiful 'Donna' hobo, well then quite frankly they are fools! We’re talking seriously luxury goods here, oh yes.

Biker jacket, £1485, shearling waistcoat, £1245, leather waistcoast, £1180 and 'Donna' hobo bag, £780 all Alexander Wang at Harvey Nichols
