For Spring 2009, Alexander Wang will hopefully direct his current success in the direction of a new shoe collection. According to WWD, the new footwear is "aggressively sexy" and will include five styles of the platform sandal– including a thong style. Wang says, "Everyone’s been doing an open-toe. I added the thong to
give a fresh perspective and make it more provocative.
The thong
between your toes, it draws your attention to that area." So the designer is sexifying our toes… what else is he doing?

A diffusion line. The designer has developed a lower-priced line of clothing, but it won’t be a watered-down version of his original designs. Instead, Wang’s offering a line of tees that will fit in with his grunge aesthetic. WWD offers these details on the line- "T by Alexander Wang will feature 12 styles — from tanks ($28)
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." The shirts are loose and limp with wider necklines and stretched armholes, and are described by the designer as "draped and kind of wilted." Sounds comfy-chic to us!
