If you're a fan of Alexander Wang or have even a passing interest in how a new store gets concepted, built, and pulled together for a major celebrity-studded opening, take a peek at this really excellent behind-the-scenes video that traces the steps leading up to the grand debut of Alexander Wang's first Manhattan standalone Grand Street shop.
Good to know: Beginning today for an entire month, 10% of all sales from Alexander Wang store and e-commerce will be donated to the Japan disaster relief efforts. So, shop freely and often. We're thinking about going in for a pair of Wang's spring shoes ourselves.
