Faster, Better, Stronger: Mark Fast Goes Affordable

Cult followers of Mark Fast's ephemeral knits, rejoice! The designer is set to launch an affordable line of bodycon knits for spring, aptly called Faster.

The nylon/elastacene knits will follow Fast's signature deconstructed sex appeal in the form of tube dresses, tops and leggings that will retail between $40-$200 (a hefty step down from the usual $2K+ price tags on his Fast line).  The recession-conscious move by the designer actually manifested as an accident, when special tights he created for a goody bag struck the fancy of buyers.

The pun-lovin' name is an accurate moniker, with the difference in the materials of the two lines lying in that Fast garments are produced on domestic machines, by hand and one-at-a-time, while the new Faster duds are made (faster) in a factory in Italy.  We'll take it!
