Alexander Wang has catapulted from up-and-coming New York favorite to global fashion superstar faster than you can say his name. Last week, the opening of a three-story boutique in Tokyo’s posh Aoyama neighborhood solidified his high spot on Japan’s “it” barometer.

Japan follows the United States and China in getting a flagship, so as one of still just a few, the store is a must-see destination. With a classy marble-and-glass facade, it boasts a few highlights that the others don’t have, such as a basement menswear floor three times the retail area of the NYC shop, making it the brand’s largest. The top two floors carry the women’s main line and a casual line named T by Alexander Wang. There are also home and lifestyle products for sale, made in the minimalist luxe-sporty aesthetic of the brand. M.J.
