for those of you who have been living under a rock this summer, it’s becoming clear that alexander wang is the designer to watch these days. his fall line is already selling out, and even his $76 tees have become impossible to track down.
so, it’s no real surprise to me that his newly-released rocco duffel bag is expected to be the “it bag” of the fall season – it’s already sold out at most stores. the coco duffel boasts classic duffel styling, but gets a bit of badass biker edge by being coated with metal studs all along the base of the bag.
lately i’ve been shying away from the “it bag”mentality, in favor of things a bit more off the beaten path. and, if i’m being honest, i’m not as excited about this bag as i’ve tried to be…duffel shapes have never been my thing. but i am developing a bit of a crush on the brand-spanking-new version that just appeared at shopbop. while the standard black i’ve seen everywhere was feeling a little bland, i love the light denim shade of this version, and the almost suede-like distressing on the leather. but mostly, i love that it can be an “it bag” that not everyone else has.
grab your favorite, but do it fast…these are going to be gone in a flash!
