This week's issue of New York Magazine features several stunning pictures of Alexander Wang's brand new flagship for Balenciaga, which is slated to open at 148 Mercer Street this Friday. In the photo above, Wang stands in front of a slice of the store's Verde Rameggiato marble that was installed by workers flown in from Italy. All in all, 5,400 square feet of it was used.
