At long last, the much anticipated debut of Alexander Wang at Balenciaga has arrived! How did he fare? Refined and sculptural, per Cristobal Balenciaga’s aesthetic credo, got heeded by Wang. Full review ahead, plus a roundup to follow of what critics’ klatch had to say!
Fern Mallis corralled a chic set to the 92nd Street Y last night for the latest edition of her “Fashion Icons” conversations, this time with Marc Jacobs who she’s been trying to nab for a year and a half, plus had to reschedule post-Sandy in November. It was worth the wait as Jacobs descended upon the stage to talk everything from former flames to Dior to Nebbles, his new pup! Next up in the series? Betsey Johnson on Jan. 16, Vera Wang on Feb. 19, and Suzy Menkes on May 7. But first: highlights from MJ!
