Alexander Wang 2013 Fall Collection

While gray seems to be the IT color for fall, it’s more than just a color when it comes to the fall collection by Alexander Wang.   With shades of gray, this collection incorporates a myriad of textures.  These textures come in the form of a multitude of textiles… Wool, fur, knit and leather, to name a few.  The luxurious and elegant qualities these materials portray, even though the scale is monochrome, add interest both visually and physically.   Combining textures creates a tactile connection to the fashion; A connection of warmth, comfort and sensuality.

This same idea can be taken to environments.  Using textures to create a connection within a space makes for an engaging and memorable experience, whether the colors are in the same family, or opposite ends of the spectrum.
