NATALIE’S NEW DEAL: HBO is going green for its latest fashion collaboration. The cable company, which has previously worked with AG Jeans for an “Entourage” denim collection and Cosabella for a “Sex and the City” lingerie line, is teaming up with Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin for a limited edition line of tanks and T-shirts. She’s recycling and reworking overstock graphic T-shirts from shows such as “The Sopranos,” “Sex and the City,” “Entourage,” “True Blood” and “Flight of the Conchords.” “We’re using the techniques we’ve been using since the beginning of the company — reverse and sequin appliqués, sculpted flowers, stenciling and embroidered handwriting. HBO pretty much gave us carte blanche,” says Chanin, noting the same group of local artisans who make her homespun hand-stitched garments will work on this project. “Every single one is one-of-a-kind.” Alabama Chanin for HBO, which retails from $65 to $85, will launch at the HBO Shop on New York’s 42nd Street on Tuesday.
