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!
