Yorkville boutique TNT, was filled with party goers, all trying to get a chance to speak with guest of honour, Greg Lauren. The designer and artist, who is also the nephew of designer Ralph Lauren, stopped by to host a trunk show for the Spring/Summer 2012 Greg Lauren collection and to preview the upcoming Fall/Winter 2012 Collection.
Greg Lauren’s collection takes vintage military pieces and works with them to create unique fashion pieces. Lauren said that he wanted to achieve the authentic military look and that is why he uses authentic military fabric. While modest in its design, the collection’s price is anything but modest, with pieces ranging from $1000 to over $3000.
Lauren may be best known for his artwork, and has amassed an impressive portfolio. His nude artworks are quite popular, especially with his celebrity clients, and have even gone for up to $15,000. He has also been the cover artist for DC Comics’ Vertigo and Hellblazer. The Greg Lauren collection is now available at TNT store.
