One of Kristen Stewart's favorite labels is taking a cue from her signature laid-back style to launch a basics line. Cali-based Chaiken is set to launch a contemporary knitwear label simply called "White" that will include basic tees, sweats, dresses and shorts in a range of colors.

Per WWD, White will be manufactured in Peru and designed by Chaiken collection designer Jeffrey Chow. As for prices, the brand has yet to disclose retail pricing and only provides wholesale ("$22 to $42 for tanks and long-sleeve T-shirts; $51 to $72 for dresses and sweatshirts, and $59 for shorts"), but will certainly be a fraction of the price of Chaiken's mainline.White is set to hit stores in February; stay tuned for LA retailer info.
