Sneaker culture's impact on high-end fashion has never been as influential as it's been in recent times. From sneaker-inspired footwear collections that teeter the line between homage and knockoff to actual collaborations between sportswear companies and luxury brands, the line between the two categories has officially been blurred.
Perhaps it all reached a tipping point last fall, during New York Fashion Week, when sneakers were front and center on the runway. In fact, Alexander Wang's SS2015 line was spearheaded by wearables that were inspired by notable sneakers, including Air Jordans and Stan Smiths.
To coincide with the launch of Wang's spring collection, an awesome installation was put together in the windows of Bergdorf Goodman in NYC's Fifth Avenue. The displays depict a bedroom filled with key pieces from the collection, which borrow signature design elements from the sneaker world, like the Stan Smith's white/fairway green color scheme and unmistakable paneling from Air Jordan retros.
Wang told WWD that the theme is centered "around the bedroom of a sneakerhead."
