Extra, extra! Read all about it! The latest breaking news on the street is that designer Alexander Wang has collaborated with Page Six on a newspaper-themed menswear clothing collection. The 8-piece Spring 2018 designs are directly inspired by headlines and archival newsprint from the popular publication, which just celebrated its 40-year anniversary.
“For our latest men’s collection I was inspired by the media boom of the 1980s and wanted to celebrate that phenomenon with Page Six, who to this day has such an influence on the insatiable appetite for news, entertainment, and culture at large,” the designer said in a press release.
“The captivating headlines and stories that make Page Six legendary will now be splashed across the new Page Six x Alexander Wang collaboration,” the CEO and publisher of the New York Post, Jesse Angelo, added. “We loved the idea of bringing together the iconic gossip brand with an iconic designer like Alex Wang and showcasing its appeal in a unique and intriguing way.”
This limited edition collection consists of newspaper print t-shirt and shorts, a fleece pullover sweatshirt, a nylon-patched coach’s jacket, and long sleeve graphic pieces. Worn separately, these pieces are a subtle nod to the history of sensational journalism. Mixed and matched, these bold printed garments create eye-catching street styles that deserve a headline of their own.
