Founded in: 2007 by Alexander Wang
Current designer: Alexander Wang
Complex says: Credit A$AP Rocky for helping Alexander Wang cross over to hip-hop. The young Harlem rapper is one of the biggest fans of the American brand, rocking it on a regular basis and even swagging out in all-Wang in his "Goldie" video. The brand may be one of the new comers — Wang first ventured into menswear with his T by Alexander Wang line in 2009 — but it's made a lot of noise as of late. They've even tapped female rapper Azealia Banks to front the new T by Alexander Wang campaign.
