We're big t-shirt people here at Fashionista. We wear them to work, to shows, to parties - we might've even tried to pull off a white tee at a black tie event, which means we're always in search of the perfect one. And yet we're not willing to pay $300 for The Row, no matter how Olsen-obsessed we may be. But yesterday, we finally checked out the new A.L.C. - that stands for Andrea Lieberman Collection. She's the super stylist who had a hand in L.A.M.B and guest-designed for jewelry company Mouawad before starting her own line last season. Anyway, we loved the tartan coats and skinny tux pants and spent a few too many seconds touching the cropped leather jackets but the t-shirts were really amazing. We wanted to nuzzle into the rack of super soft, almost sheer jersey and never leave. You can find them at Intermix and Barneys but if you think $147 is too much for a t-shirt don't even think about touching them or they'll be in your closet before you know it.
How I'm Making It: Andrea Lieberman of A.L.C.
When Andrea Lieberman launched A.L.C. in 2009, the fashion world quickly embraced her vision for the modern woman's wardrobe. But long before Bergdorfs and Barneys started stocking her designs, Leiberman was already an established industry player. The Parsons graduate actually started in retail with her own NYC boutique Culture and Reality, which sold bits 'n pieces inspired by her extensive travels. Eventually Lieberman's discerning eye led her into the world of styling, where she skyrocketed to fame working with big name clients like Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson. In fact, Lieberman was responsible for J.Lo, who was a client of hers at the time, wearing that now-iconic green Versace number to the Grammys. We caught up with Lieberman to learn more about how she seeks inspiration everywhere from Africa to New York and how she built her brand.
