A certain chart-topping pop star just showed her first line at her first fashion week (in Hong Kong, no less!). Filled to the brim with Swiftian street style staples like stripes, jumpers, and boxy crop-tops, it's quite the collection of must-haves — so, how can you buy Taylor Swift's fashion line?
Well, unfortunately for us, the line (which was released last August) is exclusively available on Chinese e-commerce sites, JD.com and TMall. Neither retailer has an English site at the moment, which definitely makes it a hurdle for those of us who don't happen to live in China/speak the language. That said, if you're more of an intrepid shopper than me, the admittedly cute (and reasonable — shirts retail from between $20 to $40) pieces might just be worth the extra effort.
Interestingly enough, the line was created in part to help combat all of the counterfeit Taylor Swift merchandise making the rounds — which might be part of the reason why the Heritage66 website cautions fans from buying the line from anywhere other than the authorized retailers, JD.com and TMall — so, sadly, it might be tough to track the collection down on sites like Amazon or eBay.
You want to know the silver lining, though? It's not exactly hard to recreate Swift's look. No, these pieces won't be emblazoned with the words "Shake it Off" or spell out "Taylor Swift" with floating Matrix- esque letters, but for now? It's as close as we can get.
