Alexander Wang has finally launched a jewellery collection after years of showcasing signature pieces in his runway shows.
The man who's edgy aesthetic and love for hardware has been realised into a small collection of chunky chains and padlock inspired pieces says, "I always wanted to do jewellery, but I never felt like I had the opportunity. I've had my hands quite full. But I really got exposed to it when I went to Balenciaga and I really enjoyed the process."
The New York cool label has always denied rumours of a possible line even though openly sharing a passion for it. However, Wang believes that things are now moving in a new direction and the line will only grow and expand the Alexander Wang business. "From what jewellery represented in terms of business at my previous employer, I feel it can definitely play a significant part in my offering," confirmed Wang.
The collection will be available from mid December on Alexanderwang.com and Net-a-Porter.com from March 2016.
