In the latest episode of their talking heads series Vogue Voices, Vogue Magazine catches up with Alexander Wang. The recently appointed Creative Director at Balenciaga speaks candidly about his design background, forming his eponymous label while still at college, his inspirations and design processes. Central to many of his design concepts is the influence of music, as fans of his collections can probably identify, alongside his other primary influence; sportswear, both of which he deliberates on in this interview.

For such a successful young designer, Wang comes off as incredibly grounded and we’re certainly looking forward to seeing the direction Balenciaga takes under his direction, as well as how that impacts his own designs.
