Real vs. Steal – Alexander Wang Lattice Bobble Sweater

by Celine on April 8, 2010

I have been really loving open-weave sweaters ever since they showed up on the Rodarte runways last year (or was it 2008?). I even dragged a good friend to 3 different stores where I proceeded to purchase 2 very-much-alike versions of the trend (hey, one is black and white and the other is multi-colored!). Anyway, enough about me. Alexander Wang has come out with a spring version of the open-weave sweater that I think is to-die-for. I love how it can just as easily be layered over a bathing-suit or paired with denim leggings. We’ve featured Wang here before, on InTheirCloset, however, so I think you know what comes next. An exorbitant price-tag of course! Sigh.

ASOS has blessedly created a version of the Alexander Wang Lattice Bobble Sweater that is both more real-world appropriate and real-wallet friendly. Many of the details from the original are there, including color-choice, but if you’re looking for the oversized fit that the original has, I would definitely size up. An awesome addition to any wardrobe (I’m especially digging the white for summer) and a great price.
