SOHO—This week has been absolutely dominated by the Alexanders—Wang and McQueen—so let's wrap it up with one final Alex update. This time, the news is about Wang: We've heard from sale organizers that they're definitively cutting prices this weekend. After today's slice of 30%, look for the numbers to drop more tomorrow and even further on Sunday. Every day should see deliveries of new stock—accessories included. [RackedWire]
