In just under a year, the VFiles store has established itself as the New York destination for hipsters and hip-hop-heads looking to score some streetwear (or, as some might call it, “swag”). A favorite of A$AP Rocky (and the kids who listen to his music), the multibrand boutique on Mercer Street carries independent designers such as Hood By Air, Les Plus Dorés, and Conflict of Interest, as well as its own namesake line. Starting today, Japanese fans of the fashion media site will be able to get their “swag” in person at the VFiles pop-up in Isetan, one of Tokyo’s leading department stores. Open through March 12, the shop will stock specialty pieces from Gerlan Jeans and the VFiles collection, as well as a limited-edition X-Girl camouflage tote bag. VFiles reportedly plans to open up similar retail concept spaces in the future, including an outpost in the Hamptons this summer.
Ever since the now confirmed rumors broke that Alexander Wang would succeed Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga, it’s been hard to talk about anyone else. That trend continues today, but not for the reason you might expect. The 28-year-old designer has revealed his newest It bag: the Pelican Sling. The convertible cross-body leather pouch is super-versatile, particularly because, with four interchangeable coverlets in stingray, ostrich, watersnake, and eel, it’s five looks in one. But don’t get too too excited. The covers, which range from $275 to $975, are sold separately and will be available starting this week exclusively at Wang’s Soho flagship and at Isetan in Tokyo. Some assembly required.
