Alexander Wang’s French Corner-------
Today’s announcement from Paris explains why Alexander Wang was busy running around town during Paris fashion week. No, he’s not the new head of Dior (as of yet); he’s set to open his biggest French retail space ever in a corner of the Paris flagship of Printemps next to brands like Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen, and Gucci.
His 420-square-foot corner opening the first week of November is the first of several coming up, including his first overseas flagship set to bow in Beijing next year and several shop-in-shops popping up throughout Asia in the coming months. While he’s busy as ever expanding, he hasn’t ruled out new opportunities.
“If I was to do something else, I would want to do something that would be completely different from me,” he says, remaining tight-lipped about any definite plans for the near future. “Sometimes you don’t get to say all you want to say in your brand.”
