Alexander Wang's Fall 2015 Ads Go to the Dark Side

Jessica Schiffer

Alexander Wang released his Fall 2015 campaign today, and it’s not a far cry from his übergoth fall runway show, which saw models decked out in all manner of black, with platform creepers and wet-look hair plastered across their faces. The new black-and-white images, shot by Steven Klein and styled by Karl Templer, feature a mix of Wang’s favorite models—Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, Hanne Gaby Odiele—alongside edgy performers like Alice Glass and AyaBambi.

Wang spoke to WWD about the ads:

“I always feel like the campaign is the final statement of the collection. There are familiar faces of girls I just absolutely love and am constantly inspired by, but I also felt there were some really inspiring new girls I wanted to include, such as Isabella [Emmack]. I also wanted the casting to feel more eclectic this season, and Alice Glass has been someone I absolutely adore, and I’ve been watching Aya and Bambi for a while since I stumbled upon them online. … They all are such individuals yet they all fit the characters of this collection seamlessly. Part of youth culture relates back to tribes and groups, and a sentiment of feeling collectively different; to feel both a sense of defiance, and of belonging.”

All of which is certainly conveyed in the new campaign.
