Alexander Wang Just Gave Away a Lot of Clothes

In what is probably one of the most exciting apparel-related things to happen on a non-Fashion Week Saturday in quite a while, Alexander Wang held a secret event (some people got invites, others just read the sandwich boards) near the Highline where men’s and women’s clothing were set out for around 100 lucky attendees to take in unlimited quantities, for free. (No shoes or bags were offered, though.) There are photos of what some people walked away with here and here, as well as one of what the showroom looked like once it had been picked clean. As one stylist was overheard saying, “What a strange concept. It’s so un-Balenciagaesque.”
