Now a year into his stint at Balenciaga, Alexander Wang is trying his hand at furniture design, with a three-piece collection for Italian label Poltrouna Frau. Evocative of his usual street-infused luxury style, the collection has all the parts of a Wang hit. Almost two years in the making, the offering includes a brass-footed beanbag chair in black shearling, another version in leather and a bar cabinet wrapped in black shagreen, opening up to brass shelving. With a growing interest in interior design along with his ongoing Objects Collection, a furniture collection was his next foray. “[A beanbag] is banal, an everyday item, but I like to re-contextualize what is banal, what is luxurious,” Wang says of his creations, which will be available this February in stores.
