T by Alexander Wang (New York)

New York's It Boy hardly qualifies as up-and-coming these days, having added accessories and now a T-shirt line to his wildly popular collection of hard-edged, '80s-inspired womenswear. With a CFDA/Vogue award under his belt along with a mentorship under Diane von Furstenburg; his photo in all the party pages; legions of "Wangsters" around the globe replicating, if not always purchasing, his slouchy, slept-in style; his muse Erin Wasson creating a spin-off line for RVCA, what's left to do, short of world domination? This spring, he launched T by Alexander Wang, a line of baggy, misshapen tees and tanks so stretched out they nearly qualify as dresses -- and in our upcoming, increasingly pants-less season, these probably will.
