Here's another essential to add to your editor-approved basics arsenal: on Tuesday, May 20, Australian fast fashion retailer Cotton On is set to roll out The One—a seven-piece line of wallet-friendly tanks and tees at their 3rd Street Promenade store in Santa Monica.
Although Cotton On's SaMo store opened four years ago, this is the first LA-inspired launch released from the brand, which is pretty sweet. "Los Angeles has such an easy and effortlessly cool style that I really love; it reminds me of home," explains the collection's spokesperson, Aussie It girl Lara Bingle. "LA is one of the only places where you can be on the beach and the red carpet in the same day. That creates such a relaxed glamour."
Meet Bingle and score The One's inexpensive tanks ($9.95) and tees ($14.95) at Cotton On SaMo on May 20.
