Last night, we got our first glimpse of the interior at the Alexander Wang store, and the biggest feature is a big cage made of black steel. Wang didn't alter the former Yohji Yamamoto too much; the walls are white, except for the back wall, which is now completely mirrored. Just inside the entrance is the aforementioned cage, a cubical structure that doesn't yet have any clothing. Wang's cage continues the mini-trend of this area in Soho, of structures within stores, as Isabel Marant built a wood cocoon in her store, and Vivienne Tam across from Wang has an entire traditional Chinese teahouse. Rest assured there'll be tons on the Wang cage later this weekend, but you heard it here first. [Previously]
