What’s Kaia Gerber Doing in Alexander Wang’s Mysterious ‘Wang Squad’?



If you thought the reign of the #squad ended with Taylor Swift’s last 1989 tour date, think again: While scrolling Instagram today we noticed Alexander Wang debuted a new account called “Wang Squad”, and it’s filled with mysterious Polaroids of very cool people.

While there’s not much context—”WANGSQUAD #WANGSS16: Coming soon. @AlexanderWang NYAlexanderWang.com” is all the description says—we have a feeling the designer is either teasing the talent lineup for his newest campaign, implementing some type of coed Balmain Army situation, or maybe giving us a peek at the cast for his upcoming New York Fashion Week show.

The group is a mix of very-right-now models, like Wang faves Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, and Molly Blair, and musicians like Travis Scott, Baauer, and Aluna Francis.

Then, right in the middle, there’s Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s 14-year-old model-on-the-rise daughter, who just last week landed her first grown-up fashion campaign (she’s also posed for Versace’s kids’ line and racked up a long list of editorial credits).


Her mom may be a card-carrying member of the Balmain Army—she fronts the brand’s spring campaign along with fellow supers Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell—but it looks like the younger generation is defecting for a rival gang. Watch out, Kendall and Kylie Jenner Olivier Rousteing, there’s a new squad in town.
