Time to channel your inner nerd with some nice laid-back pieces from up-and-coming brands, Sophomore. I know that towards the end of the week, I do not want to fuss. I’m usually in the full retreat of complicated pieces and/or layering in trade for simple quality pieces that still offer up a serving of uniqueness. An excellent wardrobe should have a good balance of both. Agreed? I thought you would.

Sophomore Fall 2008 Collection

Lower East Side style of the ‘70s and Lower East Side style of today look almost the same—people never stray from the basics. Taking a cue from the timeless simplicity of downtown New York, Chrissie Miller’s company SOPHOMORE caught the public’s eye with a single T-shirt design in 2003.

She initially planned to make shirts exclusively for her friends, but the overnight success of her design and the attention SOPHOMORE received from celebrities, retailers, and the press inspired Miller to think big. Joining forces with designer Madeleine von Froomer, who most recently worked for Proenza Schouler, SOPHOMORE has expanded its offerings from a single T-shirt to a full collection of contemporary sportswear.

The new line of tank tops, T-shirts, sweatshirts, dresses, leggings, and jackets never stray from SOPHOMORE’S classic inspiration. In a one dimensional world of basics, SOPHOMORE brings a fashion twist, soft washed fabrics, perfect fits and a New York vibe that will make the line a clothing staple for years to come. The line is currently sold at high-end boutique such as Barney’s, Opening Ceremony and Satine.
