Chinese-American fashion designer Alexander Wang has opened his first boutique in Macau. The store, at the Galaxy Macau Cotai, offers the full range of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, T by Alexander Wang and the OBJECTS collection.

Wang, who this year left Balenciaga as creative director after three years, has 78 stores worldwide – his first in Hong Kong opened in  2012. This month he opened his first European flagship store in London as his eponymous fashion label continues to grow (it's now valued at more than US$130 million). The American designer's first flagship store opened in New York's Soho district in 2011, six years after he set up the label.

The Macau store reflects Wang’s utilitarian style. Charcoal terrazzo floors are accented by soft grey wool carpet, while matching plaster walls create an industrial vibe.

Born and raised in San Francisco, Wang moved to New York to attend the Parsons School of Design. In 2005 he launched of his own label. His first catwalk collection was presented in autumn 2007. In 2008, Wang was named recipient of the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund, and launched his first handbag collection the same year. In 2009 he was named Swarovski Womenswear Designer of the Year. The same year, Wang launched his Women’s T by Alexander Wang and Footwear lines. Men’s T by Alexander Wang followed a year later, with his men’s ready-to-wear line debuting in 2011.

The Alexander Wang store is at 1054B, The Promenade, Galaxy Macau, Cotai Tel: +853 28576918
