In the wake of Alexander Wang being named the Best New Menswear Designer by GQ and the CFDA, the designer will launch his first ready-to-wear men’s collection this fall (yes, usually things happen in the opposite order, but this is Alexander Wang, so normal rules don’t apply). Even Wang admits his surprise at winning: “I got nominated and at first I was like, really?” he told Style.com. But since everyone told him he should and showered him with money to do so, Wang went ahead and made a full menswear collection, which consists of nylon tracksuit pants as well as lots of leather-trimmed coats, black sweatpants, and black leather shorts. Prices begin right where the men’s T line tops out, ranging from $375 to $2,150.
