Alexander Wang Flagship Store Opens

alexander wang bag details

What took so long? I can’t help but to ask of the Alexander Wang flagship store opening yesterday. For months, I’d been passing by the corner of Grand and Mercer looking at the large windows marked “Alexander Wang” waiting for this day. Hey, it’s only a few blocks from my office and another shop to tempt me into forsaking my retirement fund. What retirement fund? Who’s retiring?

Anyway, one of the nice things about the designer boutiques is that you really get to see how a designer would merchandise their own collections. Most boutiques that carry AWang do so in a way that curates their own retail image.  The flagship store architecturally represented the Alexander Wang philosophy of the stark black and white, lush materials.. marble, even a fur hammock.

I took the opportunity to take photos up close of all the tidbits I drool over online. Though I do have a few pieces by the designer, I’ve yet to get a fancy bag (by any designer really) and the accessories and shoes are just lovely. The sunglasses, I had no idea how much I would love them until I tried them on. You know what I’m going to be dreaming of this year!

The Sunglasses are awesome! they remind of me of Catwoman — in a good way.

Those booties with the zippers are on my “drooool” list. one day, one day.

I know! I’m super excited he’s like my favorite designer! I remember when he started making menswear, it was like a dream come true for me. He’s very talented, he’s definitely the future.
