Alexander Wang Brushed Felt Varsity Jacket
This Brushed Felt Varsity Jacket features calfskin leather sleeves and a unique blazer/teddy jacket body, polyester lining, two flap pockets, and button fastening.
Coming off of season three for men’s T by Alexander Wang, men’s ready-to-wear launches in the form of a capsule collection. Domestically, it will be available exclusively at select stores. The line is classic and straightforward, less to do with high fashion than comfort and confidence. There is a strong masculine component that assumes the directive that opposites attract, rather than being the male version of our women’s pieces. Fall 11 introduces classic utilitarian styles with references that feel iconic but have hybrid elements that bleed into one another – from car coats to wind breakers, tuxedo jackets to varsity jackets. It’s taking what is most familiar to men and offering it in a new proportion and silhouette; for instance, knits layer into woven pieces, tux lapels are found on a sports jacket and flight pants are lined with flannel quilting. A sense of ease and irony are injected throughout the collection while formality is stripped back. Fabrications range from leather, wool felts, viscose nylons, silk trims, wool gabardines and denim; the fall color palate is shades of aubergine, espresso, army, charcoal, alabaster and black.
Available at colette.
