Erin Wasson Aims to Put the Chic Back in Skater Chick

>> It looks like Erin Wasson doesn't need to work with Alexander Wang anymore: She's got her own line to worry about. She's signed a three-year deal with skate and surf brand RVCA to produce Erin Wasson for RVCA, which is getting good reviews already — Opening Ceremony has already snapped up the Spring 2009 collection.

We're talking about the model who has a half-pipe in her backyard, so it's no surprise that she chose to do low-cut cotton tanks ($55), miniskirts, frayed denim cut-offs ($230), a silk button-down emblazoned with tiny thunderbolts, and a blazer with a zipper running up the back, all aimed at girls who skate.  In fact, she straight up said: "I’m going to get my rocks off seeing girls in California skating around wearing my clothes more than I think I will seeing it in the fashion world."

As for the Low Luv-Bliss Lau jewelry controversy, Erin simply told WWD: “I have the utmost respect for Bliss Lau. I admire and appreciate what she has done for the jewelry industry.” Guess that's as good of an answer as we're going to get.
