What do you think about the newly released Rock & Republic Fall 2009 Plain Wrap collection? Everything in this new line is emblazoned with the name of the item in caps, hence T-SHIRT on a plain tee, JACKET on a jacket, etc. The idea here is “basic items with staying power”, according to the founder and creative director Michael Ball. But how much staying power really does a pair of pants with the word PANTS on it has? And even though this collection is definitely not as pricey as the original Rock & Republic brand, I’d rather spend my money on a nice pair of jeans that I’ll wear for a while, than on a novelty item that is supposed to be a “fashionable basic”. But maybe that’s just me. Plain Wrap will be available at Saks and Bloomies come this Fall.
