Yohji Yamamoto's gigantor SoHo store met a sad, quiet demise last year, but the space may be resurrected soon—just not in Yohji's name, at least, according to our sister site Racked NY. They think it's going to be the location of the first Alexander Wang flagship in New York. "Our inspection of the site yesterday reveals that it's not only been freshly papered, but that it's without a single peephole and the black security gates on the inside have been lifted. It also may be painted black inside or have a black ceiling now. Things are eerily quiet down there, too quiet and too buttoned up. We can't wait to see if we're right." Anyone want to chance some guesses? [RNY]
