Paris-based designer Ludovic de Saint Sernin (LdSS)'s crystal logo tank top has quickly become a wardrobe staple for it-boys globally. In a "behind the look" interview with Vogue, he says, "I just always thought that a guy in a tank top is hot." Part of the impetus was also discovering how empowering tank tops were in the '70s and '80s for the queer community. "For a piece as simple as a tank top to allow somebody to feel like they’re a part of the LdSS community, and to be themselves and to show it off and be confident with it, gives me so much joy." {Vogue}
