The fashion industry has always had this strange balance between following the norm and breaking out of them.
It’s why so much ink spilled on Alexander Wang‘s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard‘s Duggal Greenhouse had to be devoted to how weird it was for fashion leaders to go to Brooklyn, with a kind of condescension and surprise that would have even been strange in the 1990s.
Lest you think this is just a civic-pride narrative and had no technology undertones, apparently Wang’s show ended with models standing in black outfits on a round platform, that began to rotate and then their clothes changed colors as heat was blasted on them. Most coverage of the show barely gives it more than a sentence, though. The writers are too busy congratulating themselves for surviving Dumbo.
A video may crop up here, soon.
