Alexander Wang's Soho Store Has The Next Trendy Item

You can always count on Alexander Wang to start a trend — after all, he's the designer who introduced us to iridescent clothing and made Brooklyn the new popular Fashion Week venue. Plus, the man just knows how to design bags that sell like hotcakes. When Wang speaks, people listen. So, we can definitely see the marble surfboards (pictured above) in his Soho flagship becoming the next big thing.
Staying true to Wang's love for sporty style, the monochromatic installation includes five hand-crafted surfboards by Australian brand Haydenshapes, a black metallic cage, and a sand sculpture in the shape of rogue waves. Leather satchels and pointy pumps — among the brand's top sellers — are scattered throughout the space. We're calling it now: A retail frenzy will certainly happen if these limited-edition planks are available for purchase.
