After months of anticipation, and a little party last night, the new Alexander Wang shop in Soho is open! Well, sort of. The opening for real folks isn't until tomorrow. Today the airy shop was filled with insiders only, all perusing the minimal racks and cages. The doors at Mercer and Grand were under heavy security, with a staff of name-checkers guarding the gates. Only those on the list were allowed inside for champagne and shopping.
Out along Grand, the big windows showed a whole wall of shoes and bags, each tucked into their own little nook. Knits in comparable colors were almost within reach. Greys and blacks and browns prevail. Tonight we'll dream of Wang. Tomorrow we shop.
