Alexander Wang, SS15, New York.

An unusual twist on a placket from the Alexander Wang Spring-Summer 2015 collection was cut to resemble the lacing and eyelets of sneaker shoelaces. This tied into the other sneaker details used throughout the collection and showed how one unusual detail can create a focal point for a whole garment.
