T by Alexander Wang [photo via WWD]
The buzz over Alexander Wang just keeps growing. The designer, the focus (along with his beautiful new Tribeca showroom) of an article in today's WWD, has just revealed that he's going to launch a diffusion line, named T by Alexander Wang, and a shoe line. 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.'” The shoe line, on the other hand, is described as sexy and slightly hardcore, with five styles that boast body-piercing ring hardware.
