Alexander Wang, Mid-2000s Comedy Buff?


Guess we weren't the only millennials pretending to be asleep while secretly sneaking late-night viewings of SNL and Mad TV. After reviving Anjelah Johnson's Bon Qui Qui character for a spoof last year, Wang has found yet another mid-2000s comedy touchstone to star in his latest campaign. Chris Kattan is back, playing Mango in a promotional video for the designer's T line. “I’ve always loved Mango’s character from SNL, and to be able to work with [Kattan] was such an honor,” Wang told “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." Next up, can he please bring back Gemini's Twin?
