Alexander Wang to Open First Tokyo Flagship
With 50 sales points across the country, Alexander Wang is hardly new to Japan. But this October, the American designer will open his brand's first Japanese flagship in Aoyama. And we can't wait.
The interior of the store will be designed in the same minimal style as his other flagships, with unconventional accent pieces such as the fur hammock hanging in the brand’s New York flagship. The shop will carry the full lineup of Alexander Wang items, including men’s and women’s styles, shoes, leather accessories, and the T by Alexander Wang diffusion line. There will also be some products that are exclusive to the store, including some lifestyle items from the designer’s Objects Collection, which launched last year.
But the Tokyo store isn’t the only thing Alexander Wang has up his sleeve for this year. He’s planning a total of 14 store openings in Asia alone, including ones in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore. Oh, and did we mention that he’s also the creative director of Balenciaga? All this and he hasn’t even reached his 30th birthday yet. Jealous? So are we, but at least we’ll soon be able to envy him from the chic comfort of his swanky new Aoyama digs.
