GQ Magazine's 10 Essentials: Alexander Wang

Being that it's all New York City fashion week and all, I figured I'd give you the obligatory Alexander Wang post, with a twist. The boy is seriously one of the illest on the scene right now and recently spoke to GQ about the things in his life that make him tick. Cool shit.

If you're as talented and dedicated as Alexander Wang—as in, you were designing your first collection your sophomore year of college and won a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award at the age of 24—it's probably good to keep the rest of your habits precisely no-fuss. "I don't want to say I'm locked down," says Wang, of living and working in Chinatown, "but it's easy, it's convenient, and it has the food I love." That might sound at odds with his wild creativity, but it's more a product of his focused attitude. The man knows what he likes: loose and easy looks with the perfect balance of disheveled refinement. He made a name for himself with his anti-fitted womenswear and the past year he's brought the same sensibility to his sharply casual men's line of slouchy tees and hoodies. Here he shows us what keeps his finely-tuned routine in check.
