Alexander Wang pulled a Beyonce by announcing yesterday that he is launching denim, which can be pre-ordered today. The women’s jean line comes in three cuts and three washes: Wang 001, a “slim” (don’t call it skinny) jean with a high rise; Wang 002, a relaxed fit with zero stretch; and Wang 003, a boy cut (don’t call it boyfriend) which rides low and has a tapered, yet wide, leg.
Denim isn’t something totally new for Wang. His first runway collection in 2007 featured distressed denim, and he’s also designed jeans for his T by Alexander Wang line. However, Denim x AW is the first “official” denim launch for the brand.
