Alexander Wang diffusion line hits the UK!

default

Ever since we heard Alexander Wang - otherwise known as the hottest new New York designer - was launching a diffusion line, we've been desperate to know when and where it'll be stocked in the UK. Now we have our answer. T by Alexander Wang has just landed at Harvey Nichols, with new deliveries coming in nearly every day. The range is about 20% the price of his mainline collection but still epitomises the luxe-grunge look Wang and his bunch of models-off-duty friends - Alice Dellal, Erin Wasson and Daisy Lowe - have made famous. Examples: the perfect white T-shirt (and we don't often say that), a basic strappy top re-worked in hot pink silk and two T-shirt dresses that are too good not to share. ‘Wang excels brilliantly at the grunge-girl aesthetic that pervades his collections. New-York based, Wang proved one of the brightest stars at New York Fashion Week; press and buyers, including myself, all braving torrential rain and hurricane warnings to attend what had been billed as the 'not-to-be-missed' show!' says Averyl Oates, Buying Director of Harvey Nichols. ‘Having recently scooped the prestigious CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Award things only seem to be getting better and I think that Wang has the potential to elevate himself to the ranks of other such prestigious designers as Rick Owens, with whom I feel there are many parallels. With the introduction of his diffusion line, T by Alexander Wang, his clothes are now even more accessible to our customers.' Let's thank the fashion gods for that!

Marble-print dress, £75
Strappy T-shirt dress, £80
