Attention all Wangers! Celebrity fashion favorite Alexander Wang
has announced that he will be launching a new line in 2010. The designer, beloved by Rihanna
, Zoe Kravitz
, Lauren Conrad
, Kate Bosworth
and Sarah Jessica Parker
, made the announcement at a viewing of his Resort 2010 collection. His new line will be a collection of "essentials"—the pieces that Alexander's clientele comes back for season after season. The as-yet-unnamed line will be tightly edited and contain only three pants, two jackets and one flat-front shirt.
Alexander's new line will be priced similarly to his main line, with prices ranging from $260-$550. It is positioned to target an older Wang consumer who loves his designs but is looking for something more classic. Alexander says: There's also this perception that we're very young. Going to trunk shows, women always say, 'Oh my gosh, I love your brand.' This is our way of being more democratic.
Alexander currently has two lines in stores: his high-end eponymous collection and his line of basics, T by Alexander Wang. We love Wang, especially T, and can't wait to see this fashion superstar's new collection!
