Japanese Retailers: Alexander Wang Is the ‘Hottest’ International Brand

Alexander Wang, spring 2010.

In a new survey, Japanese retailers named Alexander Wang the hottest international designer brand. He earned double the votes of the second-hottest international designer brand, Givenchy. Behind him came Balmain. You know you're cool when Japan loves you. Or when Courtney Love plays at your after-party. Or when people wait in line for hours to get into said party not knowing Courtney Love is performing, even though it's at a gas station, of all places. [WWD]
