Who’s as excited about the launch of the new T Alexander Wang line as me? Pretty much all of the blogosphere as it turns out. Everyone from New York magazine to Elle UK seems to be counting down the days until they can get their hands on the fashion wunderkind’s line of well-priced, beautifully rendered basics. And while most places only have it available for pre-order, we have it now. But grab it before it’s gone—a piece I picked up just yesterday already sold out. (Sorry.)
So, should you believe the hype? Absolutely. Lightweight and insanely soft, the pieces are ideal for layering and exude not-trying-too-hard cool. What's more, they come in all sorts interesting shapes and unexpected neutrals.
Also important to note: though the Wang tees are getting the majority of buzz, other designers’ takes on the slouchy silhouette are definitely worth checking out. I recommend Monrow, Jill Stuart, and Elizabeth and James.
I’m completely on board with the whole rumpled-sexy thing that’s happening this season with the baggy tees and bf jeans. But what about you? Do you miss leave-nothing-to-the-imagination tops and second-skin jeans, or do you appreciate a little wiggle room?
