Alexander Wang’s designs just scream street style! The way he styles the models on the runway is always something critics are talking about, positively of course. The handbag collection in the year 2009 was successful worldwide, every college student had that “Rockie” Satchel dangling from the shoulders or across their bodies walking around campus. Another hit for Wang was the latest sandal in his previous collection; the Amelia Slide Sandal did cause a bit of commotion as fashionistas went crazy looking all over for them. But of course, Wang never lets us down and continued the design in different metallic colors in his next collection! Rose gold? Don’t mind if we do.
