Alyx RTW Spring 2024
Before this show started, many of the people in the Alyx crowd were happy to drink white wine and make plans for the after-party. A lot of people wondered if it would ever begin. After 45 minutes, the loudspeakers in Via Ventura began to rumble. Out came tailored coats with peak lapels and a black or black and brown topcoat. Both had angled cargo pockets with popper closures at the tricep and chain-edged collars. Grommeted, zip-up, raw-edged, sleeveless coats made of treated canvas had “A” logos with no crossbars that were repeated on the breast of Matthew M. Williams’ favorite-cut button-up shirt. When paired with crisp white cotton pants, this gave off a sensei vibe that Williams liked.
This clean look was the first time a new version of the FiveFingers bottom was used in a ballet-slipper style shoe. Williams said that he and his team had worked with Vibram to make the shoes. Compared to the usual mega-molded-sole boots, they seemed even more delicate. This time, they were made with original (and therefore Australian) Ugg-length low-calf uppers in a variety of styles, including leopard.
In the second half of the show, these big boots were shown with four or five different versions of a capri-like pant, which worked well despite its chic but also schlumpy connotations. If you squinted your mind a little, they looked a little bit like postindustrial-punk pants. And whether you liked them or not, it was fun to see a strange combination that Williams said he put together himself. It was inspired by a picture by Wolfgang Tillmans called “Gedser.” “I just wanted it to be very pure,” he said. The same styles that I would wear. Very straight, not too fancy, and right away.
As part of the story, there were also treated multipocket shorts, liner gilets, and oversized coats with rollercoaster buckles, all of which were made of leather. What looked like greasy denim was cut into pieces with a lot of volume. Full-armed canvas sweatshirts and a false tee-sleeve over a long-sleeved top worn with those cute capris made for new tracksuit shapes. Tonight, Williams and his longtime design head Lee Roach made a slightly off-kilter spring wardrobe of false-flag pieces that can be worn from work to street to evening.
