I haven’t been much of a basics person lately.. I’ve been looking at prints and textures and prints and textures!

Then comes Alexander Wang with a new line of basics – T by Alexander Wang, which makes me fall head over heels for the good ol’ plain canvas of clothes.

Is it me… or do they already look comfy on just by looking at them?

These remind me of my boyfriend (: He wears the softest (and cheapest) white ribbed tees from this little shop in Yuen Long, Hong Kong. But this week he’ll be leopard crawling in mud and gunk in camou paint and thick, unfriendly uniforms.

“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.”

The colours are already starting to excite me, but somehow I feel like I’d prefer a sharper looking basic on my frame.

Mmm it’s as if I’m already caressing teh soft worn in feel of the tees!

I actually tried to buy the black mini-pocket tee at lagarconne.com but it was sold out already. There’s one on ebay but do I really want to pay the difference between that and a gap t? Sadly the answer is, yes. There’s something special about them and I guess they’re still not so expensive as mainline Wang…
