Our fave trend­set­ters are al­ready on board – but it’s clear this T-shirt’s £320 price tag isn’t off-putting for ev­ery­one…

Some­thing’s hap­pened. Call it a fad, call it a phe­nom­e­non – what­ever you call it, it al­ready has most of the style set in its grasp. It’s the new in­car­na­tion of the T-shirt and it’s largely thanks, of course, to Gucci. Who knew a white T-shirt, of all things, could cause such a stir? But it has. Res­ur­rect­ing an old 80s logo, the Ital­ian fash­ion house has man­aged to cre­ate yet an­other cult buy, which was as ubiq­ui­tous in Copen­hagen as Ganni jumpers and hygge par­ties (we made that last bit up). At £320, it re­mains a world apart from the ba­sic tops we’ve come to know, love and buy for around £7.99 (thanks H&M). But if you’re ready to jump on the fash­ion tee band­wagon, there are more af­ford­able al­ter­na­tives with style cre­den­tials just as lofty. Ganni, for ex­am­ple, is no stranger to an in-de­mand T-shirt. The la­bel’s fruity tops were a hit last year and now it’s all about ‘rocket fries’. Sim­i­larly, Is­abel Marant’s sporty of­fer­ing and Kenzo’s iconic tiger print cost con­sid­er­ably less than Gucci’s, but will put just as much luxe into your out­fit. Try as we might, we just can’t re­sist the lure of cou­ture tees. That’s what we’re call­ing them, any­way.
