Update: Alexander Wang's Mystery Event Involves Giveaways and Snapchat

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

If you've already got plans for tomorrow night, you might want to cancel them and head to the Alexander Wang flagship on Grand Street instead. Over the holiday weekend, the brand posted the above video to its Instagram account with the following caption: "You are invited. September 9th. 103 Grand Street. 7-9PM. Stay tuned. #WANG10."

Details are scant so far, but we know that the hashtag refers to the capsule collection of fan-voted resurrected pieces from Wang's ten-year archives that just arrived in store. A later Instagram post directs people to the brand's newly-created Snapchat account "for behind the scenes access to AW events & more surprises." As of this writing, it doesn't look like anything has been posted yet.

We're keeping our eyes out for more details (like whether Wang himself will be making an appearance) and will keep you updated. In the meantime, here's hoping for another massive clothing giveaway, with all the style but none of the terror.

Update! The Alexander Wang Snapchat has the details: Take a screenshot of the snap, and if you're one of the first ten people in line who present it, you'll receive a special package from the collab with DoSomething.org (which Wang's been promoting all week on Instagram).

A Racked tipster who was in the area at midnight last night didn't see any superfans lined up, but if you stopped by this morning, let us know what it was like on Twitter, in the comments, or at ny@racked.com.

Here's the snap:
