FASHION UPDATES: Alexander Wang,
Alexander Wang says, "I have always loved London." His first flagship store in the city has opened in Mayfair.

Goodbye Balenciaga, hello London. Fashion favorite Alexander Wang has opened his first London flagship store in Mayfair. We can't wait to pop into the retail space. The flagship store is set to offer an extensive selection of Wang's collections and accessories.

The new 6,700-square-foot retail space is located at 43-44 Albermarle Street in Mayfair. The store, which is in a former post office building, was designed by Belgium architect, Vincent van Duysen, and will carry the brand’s women’s and men’s ready-to-wear collections as well as accessories, T by Alexander Wang, and the OBJECTS collection.

Coming as no surprise, word has it that Wang has many more European stores on the horizon.

This is the 25th store opening for Alexander Wang and the first European flagship. Alexander Wang is available worldwide in over 700 retailers and operates its own e-commerce shipping to over 50 countries. "I have always loved London," said Wang. "I am so proud and excited to open my first European flagship store here." Expect more stores to open here and abroad should Wang’s talks with General Atlantic lead to an investment in his eponymous label.
