The New York City designer has unveiled a hilarious new video for his T by Alexander Wang line featuring comedian Chris Kattan.

Former Saturday Night Live star Chris Kattan has reprised his role as Eurotrash fashion designer Mango in a new short film for Alexander Wang’s T by Alexander Wang line.

The eight-minute short also stars ice hockey legend and renowned fashion fan Sean Avery, Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, fashion journalist Derek Blasberg and reality TV star Sonja Morgan.

Wang is well known for his innovative campaign films, which have also included comedian Anjelah Johnson as nightmare employee Bon Qui Qui as well as a Darren Stein-directed social experiment that saw fans of the brand invited to a free-for-all shopping event with jaw-dropping consequences. — AFP Relaxnews
