Alexander Wang’s Balenciaga Ad Campaign

balenciaga-alexander-wang-first-campaign

 

Before being a model was worthy of celebrity status, they were living mannequins used to display the art  of fashion. Alexander Wang channels this form with the ultra cinematic route for his debut collection as Balenciaga’s creative director.

Kristen McMenamy models pieces from Wang’s debut collection which appeared at Paris Fashion Week this past February. The campaign shot by Steven Klein focuses on the ziggurat of the clothing, not the form of the model with Kristen’s face cut off.

The fasll campaign will make its first appearance in June 2013 publications, so keep your eyes peeled.

A$AP Rocky April 2013 Interview Magazine Cover (Full Shoot)

A$APRockyInterviewApril2013

 

 A$AP Rocky rocks the April 2013 Issue of Interview Magazine. Mean mugging in his gold front grills, the Pretty Motherf****r himself is interviewed by friend/designer Alexander Wang as he expresses the innate nature of fashion for him and disdain for the image hip hop has and the “homophobic” sentiment believed to still be instilled in the culture:

“Fashion was a natural thing to me. It was just one of those things that helped me be an individual … and it helped me get the attention that most people try to get with publicity stunts or by doing other crazy things. “

“For instance, one big issue in hip-hop is the gay thing. It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset that this topic even matters when it comes to hip-hop, because it makes it seem like everybody in hip-hop is small-minded or stupid — and that’s not the case. We’ve got people like Jay-Z. We’ve got people like Kanye. We’ve got people like me. We’re all prime examples of people who don’t think like that. I treat everybody equal, and so I want to be sure that my listeners and my followers do the same if they’re gonna represent me. And if I’m gonna represent them, then I also want to do it in a good way.”

bon-qui-qui-t-alexander-wang

 

Bon Qui Qui takes on Alexander Wang. Well, sorta. The designer has decided to take a fun, new approach to his Spring 2013 T by Alexander Wang campaign by developing a comedy sketch featuring Madtv’s, “Bon Qui Qui.” The role will be reprised by comedienne Anjelah Johnson.

Bon Qui Qui is about a couple of employees who terrorize the patrons of “King Burger” and Bon Qui Qui as their leader.

Cameos for the Wang comedy ads will include A$AP Rocky, Alessandra Ambrosio, Natasha Lyonne, Simon Doonan and Shannon Click.

Wang tells Style.com,

“I first watched Bon Qui Qui three years ago. The part when she complains about taking out the blender is a classic! It was fun to bring in some friends and people from the industry, and to see how they interacted with BQQ. The chemistry, or lack of, was the cherry on the cake.”

Be sure to check out the film debut set to air on the Alexander Wang website and YouTube channel Wednesday.

Check out a clip of Bon Qui Qui doing her thang below:
