Fresh off his departure from fabled fashion house Balenciaga, Alexander Wang is reveling in his newfound freedom and celebrating his 10th anniversary at his eponymous label with a luxury jewelry line.
Wang’s customer is clearly the downtown girl—one with a bit of edge and attitude—and his latest foray into jewelry conveys New York’s thriving, bustling and gritty energy. His three piece jewelry line consists of: a double lock necklace, lock hinge cuff bracelet and four link earrings. In a recent interview, Wang describes his inspiration behind his namesake jewelry line. “It’s inspired by an industrial bike chain, which you see a lot in New York City. Our version is brass, plated with either palladium or gold, which makes it both tough and delicate. It is the opposite of precious,” stated Wang.
With newfound clarity and keen insight on expanding his empire, it’s clear that Wang is the man to beat.VIEW SLIDESHOW
