Good morning, indeed: Giddy are we that Alexander Wang is finally launching into shoes and a diffusion line for spring 2009, both of which are, dare we say, affordable. Wang, whose fall show was one of the hottest tickets last season (goooo stocking runs!), is launching just five styles of shoes for his first collection, priced at $125 to $250. The shoes, which he mentioned back in May, will include open-toed platforms with a sky-high heel and thong to "make it more provocative," Wang told WWD. There's also a perforated-leather bootie and a heel with fringe around the ankle.
And hot on the heels (har har) of a successful Uniqlo pairing — we really do love our $60 black dress — Wang's got a new lower-priced label in the works, which is actually a line of tees, starting at $28 wholesale for a tank top and $40 for a T-shirt dress. Called T by Alexander Wang, it includes twelve styles in colors like white, gray, lavender, chartreuse, and cerulean. Wang told WWD, “Necklines are stretched and armholes are strategically lowered so that it looks worn in … 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." We can't remember the last time we felt excited about T-shirts, but lo — now we are.
Meanwhile, Wang's sales have increased 40 percent since last year, and he knows the pressure's on for his spring show. In a departure from his fall grunge look, his new collection will offer an "athletic–meets–Miami Vice" vibe, according to WWD. Hm, we can't remember the last time (if ever) we felt excited by Miami Vice, either. But again, Wang makes it happen.
