Let the obsessive updates on Alexander Wang for Balenciaga begin: First, the world only has to wait until the Fall/Winter 2013 show to see what Wang has in store for the storied brand, but they haven't determined whether or not they're going to break tradition of presenting in its Paris showrooms on the Rue Cassette. Wang, for his part, is eating, breathing, and sleeping Balenciaga archives to prepare—almost literally. Head honcho of the company noted, "He could have slept [in the archives] almost." That's one way to have awesome dreams. [Vogue UK]
