Alexander Wang’s Sneaker Bags Seem to Have Found Their Audience

Categories:Other Brands

Today in Things I Didn’t Expect: Alexander Wang offered a very limited pre-order of his very literal, sneaker-inspired Spring 2015 runway bags on his website yesterday, and the three bags, all priced in the mid-$1,000 range, were sold out and completely gone from the site within a matter of hours. As we mentioned earlier today, the fashion community’s thirst for novelty pieces seems almost insatiable right now.

The bags, which appeared on Wang’s Spring 2015 runway two weeks ago in New York, were a limited edition sneak peek of the full collection. When we first wrote about the bags, you guys didn’t seem too impressed, and I’d wager a guess that your views are unchanged now that you know they’re at the top end of the brand’s normal price range.

I’d give you more information on exact prices and model names, but save for this one photo I managed to capture, the bags have been scrubbed from the site after their apparent sell-through. The rest of the sneaker-bag-hungry masses will have to wait until the collection because available early next year.

ALEXANDER WANG DUMBO BACKPACK

Categories:Other Brands

alexander-wang-dumbo-backpack-black

I do not know how long you’ve been following us, but here is a fact. In the past, whenever we saw a backpack, even though we think it’s cool, we say ‘no’. The only backpack we had featured was the Alexander Wang’s Marti Backpack.

That’s was around a year ago, and now everything has changed. Backpack is back, returned from the graveyard, they are now cool. More and more fashion girls are carrying them. It’s so popular that Alexander Wang decided to design another one.

The Alexander Wang Dumbo Backpack, take it in black for the most classic look. Now please hit me: ‘Tell why this bag is so special’.

Alright, where do I start?

Okay, do you remember the Alexander Wang Rocco Bag?

Yeah that bag.

The Alexander Wang Rocco Bag is one of the most classic bags from Alexander Wang. It got beautiful studs on the bottom which makes us drool. Still, some people love it and others hate it. The studs are quite heavy, which can drag your bag to bottom, due to graffiti. Still, if you can forget about that, it’s one of the most stunning designs ever and you will love to own one in your wardrobe.

This dumbo backpack, I would personally call it Rocco Backpack, but anyways. It has the same rose gold studs embellished like the Rocco bag on the bottom. The size is so cute that we will be guilty if we don’t share it with you.

A casual look, perfect to carry books and small laptops because it’s made from black textured leather (lambskin). The design is quite easy, but timeless. There is even an internal compartment to store all your everyday essentials.

This bag comes in different colors and variation, of course black is my favo. The size is measured 30 x 33 x 14 cm (W x H x D).

Alexander Wang Leather Devere

Categories:Other Brands

alexander_wang_devereEvery once in a while I’ll hit THE OUTNET to see if there was anything interesting. Frankly, while it’s usually a case of why-is-it-still-so-expensive-when-it-is-supposed-to-be-an-outlet, or where-ugly-bags-go-to-die, there are gems from time to time and today’s post will prove it.

First thing that caught my eye was the Alexander Wang Devere, a boxy leather handbag that you’ll either adore for being such a uniquely-shaped piece or abhor for being so, well, uniquely-shaped. It’s not a bag that’s made for everyone, but for those who like its strong, sculptural lines that are still somewhat ladylike, you’ll also love the fact that the 28 cm by 25 cm leather bag is also now around GBP250 after a hefty 60% discount.

Good for work or play, my only gripe is perhaps the colour it comes in, which while pristine when it’s brand new will definitely be stained and marked over time. Also from Alexander Wang, do check out the well-sized unisex Pelican Weekender that’s also 60% off and comes in at around SGD800 after discount.

Other great deals to be had include the Lytton clutches (one’s GBP96, the other,GBP124 after discount) from Diane von Furstenberg, Marano clutches and SLGs from Anya Hindmarch, and of course, selected clutches and shoulder bags from Valentino. Just wish the discounts were a tad deeper though.

New Year, New Bag: Alexander Wang's Green Rocco Is the One

Categories:Other Brands

The piece: Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel in Vine Green

Why it's worth it: With the New Year just weeks away, we can't think of a better way to kick off 2013 than with a brand-new bag. Yes, it might just be another excuse to go shopping, but there's no denying the star quality of this gorgeous green Alexander Wang Rocco duffel. With style setters and stars around the world sporting iterations of the Rocco season after season, the sporty-cum-chic silhouette has become a classic in its own right. And now that Wang signed on as Balenciaga's new creative director, we expect the Rocco to be even bigger next year. What's more, the refreshing vine-green hue — we love how it contrasts against the bag's iconic studs at the bottom — is right in line with 2013's color of the year. Thanks to the roomy size and handy two-strap option (it also comes with a shoulder strap), this stunner is perfect for toting around all day, every day. What more convincing do you need?

Alexander Wang Flat Drawstring Bucket

Categories:Other Brands

alexander_wang_flat-drawstring-bucketThis bag has so many things going for it right now it’s not even funny. Besides the fact anything bucket with a drawstring is so on-trend right now, the dash of fluorescent lime is just the right amount of pop the bag needs. Coupled with the fact that the edgy 100% leather bag comes studded at the bottom (tell me, when are studs never in?) and the fact that it’s also on sale now via Lane Crawford for USD715 means it would be a crime not to.

But if you’re not feeling this variation of the Alexander Wang Flat Drawstring Bucket, you’ll find two more via Alexander Wang online, one in black leather with gold studs and the other in distressed leather with silver studs that are priced at USD523and USD642 respectively. Better yet, both Lane Crawford and Alexander Wang will ship direct to Singapore (and the region) so there’s really no reason not to.
