the T by alexander wang collection is a sub-collection to the alexander wang mainline, seen here is the sub-collections spring 2011 set. focused on relaxed silhouettes & a strict color palette, the collection is a slight progression of last seasons campaign. born in in 1984, alexander wang grew up in the 90’s & much of that style era is seen through his concepts, fused with new school design minimalism. the collection is based on the classical style elements of a t-shirt, hence the T reference. seen in grey, black & oatmeal tones, the collection showcases a wide range of looks that share the same cohesive concepts. a perfect addition to the already astounding style archives of alexander wang’s design empire of downtown street style.

shot by paola kudacki, mariacarla boscono of women model management appears with italian ballet dance, roberto bolle. appearing for the FW10 issue of hercules magazine. boscono appears seductively in knee high patent leather boots & leopard print while showcasing much more of her cheeky side, literally. i love that the images are delicately masculine; roberto bolle is a handsome prop within the editorial & compliments mariacarla beautifully. a beautifully poetic set of images.

shot by lope navo, this creative interpretation of a sweet sixteen birthday party appears for fiasco magazine‘s sex issue. i love the low saturation of the warm tones as well as the elements of birthday cake & candles with birthday boquets. navo has been showcasing a bit more of creativity through illustration on his images as of late, an element which surely sets him apart from others in the field. other quirky childlike elements like lollipops, giraffe hats, hello kitty marshmallow lollipops & cupcakes add that adolescent feel to the spread against a grey studio backdrop. represented by ford models, aj began modeling after becoming a semi-finalist for VMAN’s ford modeling contest & has since had much success appear for campaigns with calvin klein, frankie morello & levi’s. he is joined for this spread by agency mate, blake kneisley & whilemina models taylor fuchs & kara searle.
