Am I the only fashion blogger in the world who’s never written about Alexander Wang’s handbags? Possibly. But the truth is, I was never really on the Rocco bandwagon. It looked heavy, predictable, and was a little too “It Bag” for me, from the moment I first saw Mary-Kate (or was it Ashley? Does it even matter?) schlepping one through the West Village. And then there was that tote with the metal corners, which was fine, but decidedly not interesting enough to earn its $800 pricetag, in my mind.
But this season, something’s changed. The styles are more polished, more streamlined, and just…better. At least to me. So, just in time for Mr. Wang to depart for greener pastures, I think I’ve finally found a few worth coveting. What about you?
