During Fashion Week, a change came over the Alexander Wang store in SoHo. The Grand Street location went from brown paper, no signage and an unofficial look to sleek black windows, officially branded with the stark, white Wang logo. It's happening.
Although there's still no official opening date, occupying their pricey real estate means that Wang should make it sooner, rather than later in order to capitalize on fall and holiday shopping. Now's the time to make wild guesses on what it'll look like inside! What do you think? Will he go all black and minimal, or will Wang whip out with a surprise for the opening of his first store, ever? Place your bets in the comments!
Vogue may have scored with the confirmation that this spot would be Wang's store, but we've just created the venue in Foursquare. Let the battle for
loosest tank top mayorship begin.
