Sweaty Dressing: Alexander Wang's Corset Sweatshirt
I didn't participate in the Jucification of the universe in the early noughties, nor did Jennifer Beals' torn Flashdance sweatshirt thrill me at the time.
But thanks to a recent editorial in Vogue, I've been considering a sweatshirt--and it doesn't have a university's name emblazoned on the chest.
Here is Alexander Wang's cotton corset sweatshirt, in a perfect shade of oatmeal, just waiting to be paired with a skinny pair of khaki-colored ski pants. Wang both elevates the humble sweatshirt and devulgarizes the demi-demi-cup corset.
But underpants comme des garcons? In brief: of corse-t not.
