Wang on the runway

It's about this time every year that I begin to wish I lived in New York. All of the other months I'm a happy, happy Cali-girl, but fashion week has got to be the envied event of the year--hosted in NYC when the weather is deliciously perfect, pre-fall. Well, featured on the NYFW runway on Saturday, sporting his white-out Spring 2010 line, was the San Francisco-born, 26-year-old designer, Alexander Wang. Mister Wang believes that "a tee and jeans can be as stylish as a silk dress" so in 2009 he launched T Alexander Wang, a slouchy-sexy line of tees, tanks and jersey dresses! Pretty fun, huh?! He's also held the prize of several coveted awards, including the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund Award, and the Swarovski Designer of the Year Award. But let's have YOU to be the judge this time on AW's uber-unique Fall 2010 shoe collection, featuring lots of brand new vibes and tall square chunky heels...

Alexander Wang's 'Alana' boots are made of heavenly, velvety goodness, and stand at a nearly-nutty 4 1/2" tall (with 3/4" hidden platform). They hit about mid-calf with stitching detail up the middle and around the top opening of the boot.

Or hav'a look at these 'Addison' pointy-toe, dual colored boots. A faded yellow creeps up on this all-leather brown boot, that stands at just over 5-inches tall. Runway only, or could you see yourself on the street with these puppies on?
Check out the black & blue leather version of the 'Addison' platform boots from the fall collection, too (and try not to be too too distracted by those pokey ribs comin' outta that boney model, sheesh!).

The Alexander Wang 'Constance' bootie is probably the most tame of the runway group, with it's muted, black leather and slight touch of blue to highlight the toe. Long laces tie at the ankle for a more conservative finish to this high-fashion heel. Personally, I think this one's kinda funky-fun! Pretty sure I could strut my stuff thru the dirty sidewalks of NYC in the 'Constance' bootie!

Whatchoo think about Alexander Wang? Yay or nay? Do tell!
