Balenciaga is casting a wide net. After a show and exhibit in Beijing, the brand is now headed to Dallas with a store opening today in the city's Highland Park Village development. The lush 1,150-square-foot interior is the work of Ryan Korban, who also collaborated with Wang on the design of the brand's Soho flagship. The diamond floor tiles are an homage to those in Cristóbal Balenciaga's couture salon in Paris, while the use of marble echoes Wang's fall 2013 debut collection for the house. Next up for Balenciaga? Outfitting the tech crowd: They're planning a store in Silicon Valley.
