Good Question: Michael Stars
May 11, 2007
From A SheFinds Reader: There was t-shirt on the Tyra Banks show that fit very snugly and had long sleeves. It also comes in an array of colors…I think the first name of the designer is Michael…Can anyone help me??
The Answer: The designer was Michael Stars, who has quietly attained a substantial following for the simplest of wardrobe staples: the t-shirt. Besting the Gap, which formerly dominated the t-shirt market in the 80s, Michaels Stars turned the fashion basic into something distinctly feminine and even sexy. For example, Stars promises that his Supima Modal Band Crew will become your “new favorite long sleeve tee.” Danged if maybe he isn’t right on that one. It’s sheer, layerable, falls at the hip, and the sleeves are just long enough to push up and create a soft gathering effect. He has loads of styles, colors and fabrics. You’ll want to wear them all the time. Sadly, most of his shirts seem to come in sizes extra small to medium only (at least at the time of this writing). But, heh, these babies might be worth me dropping a few pounds. Find them at michaelstars.com.
