Erin Wasson x RVCA (New York/Los Angeles)

The ultimate downtown girl, model Erin Wasson became Alexander Wang's muse after he discovered they lived in the same East Village apartment building. Since then, Wasson has expanded her brand to include LowLuv, a line of chain jewelry that appears to be a direct copy of Bliss Lau's innovative body jewelry line, and now Erin Wasson x RVCA, a womenswear collaboration with a skateboard line that proved to be the literal toast of the town when it launched with one of the few parties at New York Fashion Week earlier this month. Drawing on her Texas roots while mining Wang's bottomless well of '80s references, the line features fringe details, denim jeans and vests, and saloon-ready garter straps, all mixed with oversized T-shirts. Innovator or imitator, Wasson certainly has a talent for channeling a moment, and her line has already garnered rave reviews -- and an upcoming Paris showing thanks to Opening Ceremony.
