Alexander Wang in his new studio in Tribeca
According to WWD, Alexander Wang is set to release his “first shoe collection, and he’s dipping into the diffusion arena with a lower-priced label”. The diffusion line dubbed T by Alexander Wang is all about cotton basics, it “will feature 12 styles — from tanks ($28 wholesale) to T-shirt dresses ($40) — all cut in the designer’s signature languid style, with colors ranging from simple whites and heather grays to lavender, chartreuse and cerulean”. “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.”
For his shoe collection, it will consist of “five styles, each a variation on the platform sandal” and “priced at $125 to $250 wholesale, the collection ranges from a perforated leather bootie to a heel topped with fringe”. His inspiration is a contrast to his upcoming spring lineup. Both collections will roll out in Spring 2009, stay tune for more info forthcoming…
