Prabal Gurung jumped on Facebook last night to post a picture of one of his first t-shirts.
The designer, who’s probably best known for his cult celebrity following, loyal Twitter community and unbelievably gorgeous red carpet dresses, is kicking off his expansion with something a bit more accessible. Like Joseph Altuzarra and Proenza Schouler before him he’s starting with sportswear instead of shoes or bags.
The t-shirts, at least one of which shares the purple print central to his spring collection, will hit stores this spring and probably land in the $200 to $300 range. Gurung wrote, “Hope u guys luv these T shirts we r doing the 1st time as much as I do.”
