It’s been a busy year for Alexander Wang—and we’re only into month three. So far in 2011, he’s won GQ’s Best New Menswear Designer in America award; relaunched his Web site to include behind-the-scenes documentaries, model confessionals and online artist collaborations; started a Twitter account, and, in perhaps the splashiest debut of all, opened his first store, at 103 Grand Street in the former Yohji Yamamoto space in New York. Complete with a fox fur hammock; leather rug; hybrid half-marble, half–black iron tables, and a 10-foot-high, 14-foot- wide cage, the flagship works a similar vibe to his own showroom—sleek and cool.
