SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] For fall we'd started thinking about this idea of survival. They're kind of the urban landscape of survival, and our girl, and kind of what her essentials are. Looking at pockets, and utility, and function, and contrasting it with something much more sartorial. Then we started looking at dandies, and kind of, like, men's wear, and. And kind of, fusing the two worlds together. I love doing accessories, you know, we had like, little lighter cases on the shoes, and little retractable key rings. You know, it actually stemmed from one of my friends telling me that, you know, she goes out at night and she loses all of the things in her purse by the time she gets home so it's like. You know, how can she keep track of her [UNKNOWN] or cell phone? My personal style, very simple. [LAUGH] I tend to buy the same thing over and over again, too, it ends up always being kind of the same category of [UNKNOWN]. I am Alexander Wing and I am a designer [MUSIC]
