Fur hammock, schmur hammock: The Alexander Wang store on Grand Street now also houses large, black latex pool toys that are affixed to that giant cage in the middle of it. The new display was inspired by the resort swimwear, and stars a cast of inflatable characters like sharks (or whales, anybody know?) inner tubes, and something wrapped around one of the polls that might have tentacles.
The cage has previously worn outfits that consisted of a boatload of baby's breath and geometric LED lights, but never has one of its looks been so tempting to climb.
