Wang's World
The hand-woven leather Engineer dress from the pre-fall collection.

Hi there, new Balenciaga store. Now, where is that Le Dix bag? The answer to that question waits for you just across the black-and-white tiled floor in the handbag salon. In the fabled French house’s first Dallas store there are quiet salons for each product category—shoes, accessories, the sleek and structural clothing—designed by artistic director Alexander Wang. (The American designer is rumored to be paying a visit in October.) But back to that Le Dix bag. The $2,300 top handle calfskin bag with a detachable shoulder strap has been hard to keep in stock. Le Dix, meaning “the ten” in French, is named for the label’s original store in Paris. It’s quietly luxe but has room for a gratis engraved monogram on the brushed gold luggage tag. 11 Highland Park Village, 214.273.7650­
