This spring, Nanette Lepore will launch a diffusion line of drapey, casual tops. As Nylon wisely points out, this isn't just an expansion into another price point but also into another aesthetic, since the tees look a little tougher and more downtown (or Brooklyn, really) than Lepore's usual feminine creations. The collection runs $58 to $178 and is named Oonagh, which is the sound you make when you realize you're going to have to pay nearly $200 for a t-shirt. (Zing! We'll be here all night, folks.) Actually, "Oonagh" means "pure" in Scottish, and it's a reflection of the line's stripped-down aesthetic. Look for it in Lepore's stores in the coming months.
