Last time we checked in on the Alexander Wang storefront in Soho, it had shed its brown paper and put up official signage. Now, it looks like some uninvited spray-painters have added their own names underneath the stark white-on-black letters spelling out Wang's. According to Thread NY, the building's facade just sprouted graffiti: "Nothing particularly destructive—just a few tags." If this keeps up, Wang might want to talk to the Rag & Bone guys about creative ways to solicit authorized street art.
