Not your average tee
By Joanna Barrios, March 26th, 2010
Most T-shirts couldn’t hold their own when paired with a tea-length skirt of full, cream-colored tulle. Not so for the creations of Moises de la Renta—the young New York-based designer lending his innovative tees to MANGO in an exclusive collection.
At the age of only 25, de la Renta is following in his father’s footsteps (yes, Oscar) and contributing to the fashion world with overtly feminine, romantic designs. Moises lends a modern edge by transforming the tees with patchworks of greys, blacks, roses and violets, complete with tulle bows on gem-embellished necklines. The T-shirts ($49.90 to $69.90) will be available at MANGO stores starting next month. Will the younger de la Renta have as lasting an impression on fashion as his father? Only time will tell—but these tees seem like a good start.
