Eighteenth Puts A Twist On Plain White (And Black) Tees Perfect For Spring

eighteenth-clothing-nyc-01
Back in high school, we went through a phase where we tried to jazz up plain white Hanes t-shirts with ill-conceived slashes and stitches. Eighteenth's line of six intelligently designed tees for spring '10 are exactly what we were trying to achieve: minimalist garments with stunningly simple details. They're that cheeky definition of modern art, rendered in lightweight, super-soft jersey: "Modern Art = I could do that + Yeah, but you didn't." But with the way these shirts artfully frame shoulder blades and drape over collarbones, Brooklyn designer Alexa Galler's creations are nothing less than masterpieces (plus they're made locally!). We can see ourselves ditching our run-of-the-mill v-necks and living in these all summer long. So, pick up one or two for yourself at Oak—it's right by the New Museum if you want to show off your new "art."
