Seems like the world is one step closer to becoming a permanent movie scene from “I, Robot.” On Saturday, Alexander Wang debuted his Collection 2 in Brooklyn, breaking barriers outside of NYFW norms.

As a follow-up to Collection 1, which was an ode to his parents’ immigrant upbringing and displaying various ‘American’ style symbols, Collection 2 was quite the contrary. “[It’s a] celebration of the American hustle. We’re taking stereotypes of class and wealth and trying to remix them, giving status symbols a new sensibility, he told Vogue.

In attendance, was his clan of A-list supporters including 21 Savage, Teyana Taylor, and Selah Marley. But an unexpected guest stole the show who goes by the name Sophia. Oh, and by the way–she’s a robot! Apparently, she’s cool with Wang, and important enough for the veteran designer to dress her in a custom blazer paired with a bandana from the new line.

Sophia is an artificial intelligence creation by a Hong Kong-based engineering company. Apparently, this isn’t her first fashion rodeo as she’s made her first appearance at Shanghai Fashion Week. “I love meeting people from all over the world, and I also love experiencing different fashion,” she wrote on Instagram. Yep, she’s social savvy too! It’s only a matter of time before Sophia graces a catwalk near you.

All proceeds from the new shoe will be donated to the organization, the company said. Puma athletes including DeMarcus Cousins and DeAndre Ayton began wearing the sneakers Thursday, and Puma said it will donate $5,000 in the name of each player.

“We are particularly proud of the Clyde Court #REFORM, as it not only takes inspiration from the past but hopefully encourages a new generation of individuals to fight for universal equality,” Adam Petrick, Puma global director of brand and marketing, said in a statement.

“Businesses are going to go increasingly woke over the next couple years. I’m not saying it’s not a principled decision, but it’s really more, in my mind, a shareholder-driven move,” Galloway said
