And the opening of this flagship store in Madrid is not a simple coincidence; it is the city where Spanish founder Cristobal Balenciaga opened his first boutique in 1933. With an area of 1,500-square-foot space, Wang gives us a store inspired by the elegance of its Parisian headquarters (at 10 Avenue George V) along with minimalism peculiar designer.
