Balenciaga: Ultimate Luxury

Alexander Wang‘s brand new flagship for Balenciaga has everyone chattering. The 5,400 square foot space on Mercer Street is covered in stunning Verde Rameggiato marble illuminated by a curving skylight. “The marble in the store came before the first collection,” said Wang. “The retail concept was the first initial project that just had to get under way. We jumped right in and started working on that and then the green was a key color in the first collection along with the marble green motif. The store concept triggered it.” The women’s store at 148 Mercer Street will open on November 22nd, and the men’s store across the street at 149 Mercer Street will debut a few days after.
