LA's own Grey Ant is jumping aboard the diffusion line train, launching a lower-priced collection called Grey Antics for Spring 2010. From the Vegas trade shows, Style File reports "Expect colorful zip-front minidresses and printed board shorts, most for under $100." Also on deck is a footwear collab with Teva (yes, they of the crunchy velcro sandals we all coveted back in junior high), resulting in the pairs in the photos at right (the black-and-white ones are emblazoned with flags from around the world, the beige with abstract, "tribal" symbols).
