Topshop has been making waves in mass market American fashion since its stateside debut in 2009. The corporation is recognized not only for its middle-price, high-fashion appeal but also its association with Kate Moss and, more recently, It girl print-goddess designer Mary Katrantzou. Next up for the brand will be a special line of designer T-shirts in honor of London Fashion Week and the tenth anniversary of the NEWGEN partnership Topshop shares with the British Fashion Council.

Gap is no longer the top of the mall fashion heap — but they’re hoping the launch of GapPure might help take up some of the slack they’ve lost. Seen as the natural extension of their GapBody line of underwear and yoga gear, GapPure consists of free-flowing slouchy separates — jersey-soft Ts and knits — meant to be your go-to weekend wear. How many times can Gap re-work the basic T-shirt, you ask? If GapPure is any indication, well, a lot.
But, at a price range of $24 to $68, will anybody buy? Can GapPure compete with the myriad loose-fitting Ts and tanks now available at the H&Ms, Uniqlos and American Apparels of the world — many of which cost half that?
Gap’s been floundering since creative director Patrick Robinson was fired in May 2011, and even before that, when their standard khakis and Ts seemed to have lost touch with a consumer now swimming in retail options. Will more low-end, no-risk apparel do the trick for the ailing company? [Fashionista]
Lil Wayne, I see what you’re trying to do here and there is no way you are pulling the silver paint over my eyes. Your debut collection for your fashion line Trukfit — which stands for “The Reason You Kill For It” — is pretty unimpressive. Even more unimpressive is the gimmicky way you tried to grab attention for the line of just so-so tT-shirts — by dousing a bunch of male models with silver paint. Those poor boys! [NYMag.com]
Who doesn’t love a T-shirt? Well, I guess anyone who’s ever uttered the phrase “And all I got was this lousy T-shirt!” doesn’t really appreciate them, but whatever. T-shirts are awesome. Vintage T-shirts? Even better. And vintage T-shirts from random destinations? Best. Here’s a roundup of tourist-y Ts from glamorous locales such as Hawaii and Omaha, starting at just 10 bucks!
Is this t-shirt simple? Yes. Straight to the point? Definitely. Delightfully specific? Of course. Curiously poetic? You betcha. Last question: Would you wear it? [$22, dpcted] Keep reading »
It all started when Justin Bieber wore a Kelly Kapowski T-shirt to the MuchMusic Video Awards. Shortly after, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, who of course played Kelly on “Saved by the Bell,” decided to wear a Justin Bieber T-shirt to the premiere of “Horrible Bosses.” “I’m just trying to show the love back,” said Tiffani. “He’s adorable.” [NY Mag]
But things got way, way, way more meta from there… Keep reading »

A T-shirt inspired by Kate Moss‘ controversial personal motto, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” is being sold on a UK website and marketed to children. As you can imagine, people are outraged, especially those who work for the campaign, Beating Eating Disorders (BEAT). The organization called for a ban on the “dangerous” tees. The website selling the line of “size-zero slogan” merchandise, Zazzle, declined to share their opinion of the T-shirts. “Zazzle is a custom products platform, it enables all users to create their own products that feature their own content. In this way, Zazzle is an outlet for users to express their personal opinions and viewpoints,” said a spokesman for the company. Which of their users believes that it’s appropriate to design a T-shirt like this for kids? And even more pressing: who is buying them? A parent who would spend money to buy this shirt for their child must be a cuckoo bird. What do you think? Should these T-shirts get 86′d? Or do I need to lighten up? If there’s some irony I’m missing, please alert me. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
