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 Poltrona Frau. Evocative of his usual street-infused luxury style, the collection has all the parts of a Wang hit.

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.
