Exclusive: A$AP Rocky And Friends For Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang’s world domination tour kicked off in Beijing, where the designer opened his first international flagship in May. Naturally, he’s not one to do such a thing quietly. To toast the occasion, he brought in A$AP Rocky, Diplo, and, for good measure, Penn Badgley to rock the underground parking lot beneath the store. Their outfits: Alexander Wang. Kitted out in the designer’s Fall ’12 collection—the same one now hitting stores—the trio also took part in the designer’s first menswear video, shot in Beijing during the store opening bash. It debuts exclusively here on Style.com. (For an accompanying video on the Beijing store, check out Wang’s own Web site.) As for Wang himself, Beijing is just the beginning. The designer has just opened a Shanghai store in the Shanghai Reel shopping center; another will follow in the spring of 2013.
