In case you missed it: Alexander Wang walked the CFDA Awards red carpet with none other than Chris Kattan, who was naturally dressed as his SNL character Mango. And now, the designer just released his T by Alexander Wang campaign video featuring Mango and it is amazing.
Even though Kattan is a bit older in the face, his character is completely like we remember from the late 90s-early 2000s, except instead of his shiny gold shorts, he opted for some terry cloth ones, which we assume are from Wang’s collection. When the video starts, we first see Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo looking fabulous in an elevator. Her thunder is quickly stolen as Mango enters. From there we learn just what Mango’s been up to for the past couple of years, see fabulous cameos and hear some pretty sweet music.
Wang came up with this concept because he is a firm believer in making fashion fun. “I’ve always loved Mango’s character from SNL, and to be able to work with [Kattan] was such an honor,” Wang told Style.com. “Sometimes when fashion becomes too stiff, it’s great to have someone such as Mango come through and inject a new burst of energy. Having fun and a sense of humor is so important to me that when I’m able to incorporate it into my work, I run with it.”
