Fashion designer Alexander Wang known for his two cult favorite labels T by Alexander Wang and Alexander Wang, as well as holding the design post as creative director at Balenciaga is transitioning into furniture design with an exclusive design partnership with Italian brand Poltrona Frau.
“Over the last 10 years, furniture is where my interest has really evolved,” Wang told the WSJ “When I started working in fashion, I always had an idea of an environment in my head, but how to actualize it, and what the references meant, that’s new.”
The new collection, which has been in development for two years, includes – two brass-footed beanbag chairs, one in black shearling and the other in leather retailing for $8,800 each and a companion bar cabinet, at $18,500 something that every chic house of style needs.
The furniture collaboration is scheduled for a February release. www.poltronafrau.com
