Alexander Wang showed a black, white, and beige collection yet again, but don't go thinking it's just another knitwear snore for the designer. Using a complicated embroidery technique, strips of fabric were cut apart then stitched back together so that they seem to be suspended in mid air. Whole garments appear to be loosely held together along geometrically interesting fault-lines and plenty of skin gleams through. While ultra-ladylike looks have been creeping in to Wang's collections over the past few couple seasons, his Spring '13 line makes a pretty great argument for keeping the cool around—or at least finding a way to mix the two. Take a look after the jump.
