There’s never a shortage of graphic tees in L.A., but with this dismal economy and unseasonably warm weather, it’s time for a fresh crop of fun, affordable styles.

Satine owner Jeannie Lee has created a line of inexpensive T-shirts and tank tops for $12 to $14.50, called Shibuya Mon Amour, which hit Forever 21 online this Friday. The prices are a far cry from the stock of Alexander Wang, Balenciaga and Stella McCartney she sells in her store, but we’ve got to have some lower-priced pieces to mix in and make our designer stuff look fresh again, right?


The Shibuya Mon Amour shirts are cute, with simple nature inspired graphics such as eagles, owls or deer on the front. I think they’d look best jazzed up under a sharp blazer and layers of chunky necklaces.
