We can't think of a better combination than Alexander Wang and Amex (preferably black), so last night's team up of the design star and the credit card company made for a pitch perfect party (and lots and lots of alliteration). Indeed, the American Express cardholders exclusive shopping event at Wang’s Soho flagship brought out all the ballers, who sipped on Belvedere cocktails, gawked over the gorgeously lusty Rocco and the super-covetable Kirsten satchels, and took turns getting snapped in the huge furry hammock that seems to have become the talk of the town. Debt-free guests nibbled on summer rolls, pork and prosciutto sandwiches, and ginger cookies, courtesy of Spice Market, while listening to Alex’s personal playlist that included old-school Madonna and Mariah Carey—yes!. One Amex shopper even had the designer autograph the inside pocket of the handbag she just purchased. While we didn't do that (this time at least), we did manage to grab Alex in between drinks and got a little personal, asking him about about his childhood shopping habits, his epic parties, and the music that gets him dancing. Peep our interview after the jump!
