Wang Watch: Store Signage (and Graffiti) Goes Up

The Alexander Wang flagship down on Soho's Grand Street is edging closer to its eagerly-awaited opening, with evidence of formal signage in the windows—as well as some unofficial tagging on the building's facade.

The windows are still completely covered but Wang's signature logo has been plastered across them, indicating that the space once formerly occupied by Yohji Yamamoto has officially changed hands as it awaits its new tenant, a member of the younger generation of downtown ingenues.

But the logo isn't the only new thing we spotted, however. Street artists have left their graffiti mark on the building in several spots as well. Nothing particularly destructive—just a few tags. Considering Wang's MO as the downtown hipster boy, who knows? Maybe he'll keep it up for street cred.
