"We were playing with this idea of blurriness and ambiguity," Alexander Wang said of his Pre-Fall 2013 collection. "I love the idea of intertwining and not knowing where a dress ends and a jacket begins."

To achieve those kinds of shapes, Wang created dresses with attached scarves that wrapped around the wearers' necks. Elsewhere, some of the collars in contrasting fabrics like leather or wool that poked out from underneath the collection's jackets turned out not to be separate layers, but cleverly sewn elements of the same piece.

The theme of blurriness got down to the material level, too: Wang chose nubbly Donegal tweed and jacquard for the otherwise pin-sharp suits in this mostly black, white, and gray offering. He also printed silk to look like tweed — further obscuring the line between what the wearer sees and what's actually there.
