The season of Wang Squad is here. In other words, get ready for the annual Alexander Wang takeover as he and his crew are here and blowing up the fashion scene (and your Instagram feed), as per usual.
Shot by New York photographer Steven Klein, the Spring/Summer campaign for Alexander Wang follows 21 musicians, artists, and models throughout their daily lives in that NY environment.
Seeing heavyweights like ILoveMakonnen, Kia Gerber, Vic Mensa, and Travis Scott kicking it around the city makes you almost see them as just normal people. Well, normal people that are incredibly well-dressed. That Wang swag goes a long way and the sets for each shoot reflects that balance he has between edgy street style and a raw talent for delivering nothing but authenticity in his work. It doesn’t seem like you are looking at just a set, but their actual world as each member of the squad owns their shoot.
Peep the Wang Squad Instagram, and check out a snippet the exclusive campaign video below. The music comes from Baauer, and features just a couple of Wang’s mates: Alice Glass, Alice Metza, Aluna Francis, Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, CL, Diego Villarreal, Hanne Gaby Odiele, ILoveMakonnen, Isabella Emmack, Issa Lish, John Swiatek, Kaia Gerber, Lexi Boling, Lucien Smith, Molly Bair, Peyton Knight, Stella Lucia, Travis Scott, and Vic Mensa.
