On Our Radar: Alexander Wang to Launch 'Essentials' Line

Alexander Wang unveiled his resort 2011 collection (pictured) earlier this week and used the occasion to reveal his plans to expand his line. The designer spoke about launching a new collection of essentials. He explained, "After last season we started looking at our carry-over business, what our customers come back for again and again. 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."

The initial line will include three pairs of trousers, two jackets and a flat-front shirt. It will be quite different to the T line, as Wang hinted at more of a focus of tailoring. "I don't want to say [the new line] is based on tailoring or business attire, but they're two different focuses." Are you excited for this addition to Wang's empire?
