Heart Pangs for A. Wang
February 3, 2009
King of the Lower East Side, Alice Dellal – inspired, heart – throb of the pseudo new-wave '80's, love child of acid wash denim and cleanly-cut grunge – and newly appointed fashion world darling, Alexander Wang, is up to his old tricks. Turning the simplist, but most staple items into lust-worthy treats is no small task – but Mr. Wang has shared with the world, the artfully distressed T with his aptly named new bridge line, T by Alexander Wang. T, which should be priced at about $60 to $80 per piece, sounds a lot like the almost aggressively beaten-up tops Wang's usually seen sporting: "'Necklines are stretched and armholes are strategically lowered so that it looks worn in,' he explains. 'It’s like sleeping in a T-shirt and then wearing it the next day. It’s not this crisp little T out of the dryer. It’s draped and kind of wilted.'” Saks, lagarconne.com, shopbop and barneys are all promoting the new duds – in shops and online (available now).
Personally? I say check out the simple perfection of the single-pocket T and the racerback tank.
Ugh. SO perfect. Now if I could only look like Erin Wasson.
