ALL OVER TOWN: Alexander Wang has proven he’s a street-chic kind of guy. Now, the CFDA Award winner will be taking that vision to the streets — literally. On Monday, he will launch his first ad campaign with promotional posters, photographed by Dan Jackson and featuring model Hannah Holman, plastered all over downtown Manhattan. The agenda? To celebrate Wang’s spring T collection, which hits his e-commerce site that day. “The [images] were originally only supposed to be posters we were going to send to editors and stores,” said Wang. “But I felt the energy was much more appropriate for something like guerrilla marketing than anything too proper or formal. Because T is really the core foundation of what Alexander Wang stands for, I thought it should be something that could be much more democratic.” The designer hired National Promotions & Advertising, the agency responsible for those ubiquitous Apple iPod posters, to blanket the intersections of Third Avenue and 12th Street and Grand and Crosby, as well as random hot spots throughout the East Village and Lower East Side. The ads will be replenished once a week for four weeks. As for whether the campaign will break in other cities, Wang said, “if it becomes something people really respond to, but right now New York City is where it’s at. This is our home.”
