cool and casual

What is not to love about the new T by Alexander Wang spring collection? All those midi lengths, rusty neutrals and drapey layers - it's practically an advertisement for my own wardrobe (minus the clunky boots, though). I have loved that terracotta brown, sure to be the biggest hit in fashion since camel, since I saw it in the Nathan Smith collection way back when. And I love what has come to be the T by Alexander Wang staples - the long and lean tee dresses, the baggy hooded sweatshirts, the drape front cardigans, the slouchy sweaters - all in fantastically soft and smooth cottons or wools. I love how it is the perfect fusion of tomboy and girly girl with the longer lengths - not prim but hip - and the "i mean business" rolled up sleeves. It's cool and casual, exactly the type of clothes you want to be mixing it up in on lazy sunday afternoons ambling down to markets to buy fresh daisies and french cheese and sticks of bread. Leave the theatrics and the symbolism to Wang's eponymous line. T is all about being consistently cool and casual.
