New York Fashion Week embodies (oh, god in fashion heaven, forgive me for what I am about to type) 'utilitarian chic'. It's a kind of cleanliness that can veer towards either the more structural or softer shapes, the sharp versus the romantic, but it never goes too far. New York's fashion is moulded by its consumers - the savvy cool kids who take the crazy abstracts or the heavenly romantics of Europe and put it on the huge streets of their city, giving it an urban-accessibility. Sometimes though, a bombshell steps onto the street, a hard-ass hitting number that pumps with 'tude and a fuck-you-ness understood the world over. If New York is the city of chic, then this season is the time of the elegant city hoodlum, the bad-ass-good-girl that isn't bad, she's superior. New York has its nuances and its own style, and the below are the cream of the crop when it comes to injecting NYFW with a fantastical, forward and fucking great hoodlum style. THIS IS FOR MAH GIRLS ALL AROUND DA WORLD.

Alexander Wang is one of New York's newly-appointed fashion kings with his ability to transfer features of sportswear and make them sexy, sharp and most of all, original and unseen before. Bangin'.
