Who need flash sale sites? Not Alexander Wang, who's doing his own. Style.com reports: "This morning, Wang launched a promotion on his Web site to allow dedicated fans to sign up to receive details about his new e-commerce sale—one that slashes prices by up to 50 percent on Spring accessories, ready-to-wear, and T by Alexander Wang. The private sale lasts only 72 hours, so if you’re yearning for Wang’s Spring ‘11 Tempest sandal (40 percent off its usual retail price of $650) or the Ryan clutch (a full half off its regular $725 price), make tracks."
