Only slightly tardy to the party, the New York Times just yesterday reported that people are, like, really into Alexander Wang—and for lots of different reasons! They know this because they asked some people that aren't hipsters and because his clothes don't get marked down; even though he's only 25 and his collection has only been around a mere six seasons. Why? As Sally Singer, features editor of Vogue, puts it, the clothes are “humorously slutty” and "just hit the edges of what’s acceptable.” [New York Times]
