FASHION: Santigold x Spankrock for T By Alexander Wang
by Yvette Travillian
Since receiving an Alexander Wang hobo bag as a surprise gift last month, I have officially become an addict of all things associated with him. His gift to understand today’s urban culture while thinking and designing outside of the box – makes him one of fashion’s top up-and-coming designers to peep and support. So naturally, I was extremely stoked to learn that Santigold and Spankrock will be the new faces for his Fall ’11 T campaign.
The duo who follows Ashley Smith and Diplo, are featured in an awesome short video, which is also a remix of Santigold’s single “Go” by Switch, Diplo’s partner in Major Lazer.
Alexander Wang told Style.com that his reason for choosing Santigold and Spankrock were due to “their endless talent, incomparable energy, and most of all, down-to-earth personality make them the perfect representation for T”. I couldn’t agree more!
The Fall ’11 T collection is now available on the designer’s e-commerce boutique. Check out the video below.
