1st & 10 By: Diane Paik

     Alexander Wang’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection was inspired by a classic American sport: football. Wang’s sporty twist in his collection consisted of everything from pairing together a corset and sweatshirt, to his own sexy version of “tighty whities” and leopard print peep-toes. An infusion of browns, blacks, and heather grays created the basic look for Wang’s grunge-tastic style.
      The show started off with a more casual look but soon evolved to all black outfits consisting of mesh and frilly cropped jackets. The runway transformed from being a regular walkway, to an entrance way for the most fabulous football players around. Donning pigskin in ways it has not been used before (at least in football), the headbands down to the laced up shorts took football fashion to a different league.
     Inspired by shoulder pads in football uniforms, transparent sleeves emerged from a cropped black sweater and high-waisted track pants finished off the look. Sweatshirts and tighty whities have never looked better. (photos by: Marcio Madeira for
