The celebrated luxury fashion label alexanderwang has announced its temporary residency in Miami with the opening of a Pop-Up space located in the heart of the Miami Design District. The highly-anticipated Miami Pop-Up invites guests through an entrance to the alexanderwang world in a 3,700-square-foot space with an eccentric retail design and layout that produces a truly unique shopping experience. The limited-time venture is open now through January.
“This opportunity in Miami was especially exciting knowing that it would coincide with Art Basel and playing with a concept that pushes the boundaries in a community that is known for innovation and art,” says Alexander Wang, “I wanted to present a conversation around culture clash in a district that is extremely dynamic and during a time when people from all over the globe come together to see what’s next.”
The Pop-Up explores the concept of a stage rather than a traditional retail layout, letting the space tell the story of the deep-rooted culture that is alexanderwang. Outside, the venue’s exterior exhibits a bold red color with a customary Chinese hip-and-gable roof sitting above the brand’s name. Upon entrance through the doors, guests are encapsulated in wall-to-wall red carpet, red, clear panels that line each wall, and a show-stopping, fully custom-designed silver crystal bed. The design provides an ambiance that combines luxury and eccentrics with a stand-out installation piece that represents the imagery of the brand’s campaign stars.
The alexanderwang brand has a sensibility that echoes contrasts, seamlessly blending the refined and the imperfect. Alexander Wang’s collections always reflect a sense of ease with an un-precious look on fashion, notably evolving and re-contextualizing the urban uniform with his irreverent approach. Ahead of his new Fall 2022, Resort 2023, and Bodywear collections, Wang began his eponymous label in 2005. The brand owns and operates 44 stores globally, with alexanderwang groups available at luxury retailers worldwide.
The alexanderwang Fall 2022, Resort 2023, and Bodywear collections in women’s and unisex sizing will be available for purchase at the Pop-Up.
In another chapter of the brand’s design story, alexanderwang has assumed its latest foray into everyday essentials with the Bodywear collection. The everyday-wear apparel will be showcased in a grocery store fridge installation, highlighting the brand’s ability to reinvent the mundane into something extraordinary. Traditional Chinese furniture is also woven throughout the Pop-Up, paired with alexanderwang’s contemporary footwear and accessory offerings.
The alexanderwang Miami Pop-Up is located at 167 NE 39 St. and is open from 11:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m. daily, except on Thanksgiving and Christmas. The space will remain open from now through January. You may also shop virtually by visiting the website.
