Alexander Wang Designed His Fall Accessories for Girls Who Party Hard

In a cute video for The Savannah College of Art and Design, Wang explains some specific scenarios in which his functional accessories should prove especially useful.

Every great fashion designer has to start somewhere, and The Savannah College of Art and Design, or SCAD, is steadily building its reputation as one of the best design schools in the country. Each year the college invites fashion designers to speak to its students, and for this year's week-long SCADstyle event in April, some of the industry's finest -- Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung and CFDA CEO Steven Kolb to name just a few -- will be visiting SCAD's Savannah, Atlanta and Hong Kong locations.

To coincide with the event, each of the special guests participated in a video series, in which they discuss what style means to them, as well as how their personal style plays a part in their day-to-day lives. One of our favorite clips comes from Alexander Wang, who takes the opportunity to talk in-depth about his fall 2014 collection, and its theme of survival in the urban landscape.

The best tidbit: He explains that his idea for this season's accessories -- which incorporated lighter cases on shoes and retractable key rings on the handbags -- was inspired by his friends who have trouble keeping track of their belongings when they go out partying at night. The same likely goes for many college students, amirite? (Or maybe that was just me.)
