Alexander Wang Fall Winter 2009 Bags


Givenchy and Balmain has inspired a fashion tribe that saw influences from the 80's and packed with a mean attitude and goth/rock edge. Alexander Wang's new Fall Winter 2009 should appeal to these faithful followers but with a strong, sassy and young direction. The clothes are sexy and gorgeous while his accessories, especially bags are somewhat highly note-worthy and coveted.

Way before his collection hits the runway, one of his bag designs, the Coco Duffel has already cause a huge buzz among fashion fanatics and many have already anxiously awaiting its arrival in the stores. All thanks to Mary Kate Olsen who is often the best 'spokesperson' of all things hip:-P What she wears and uses, everyone follows. Swinging on her arms way before the debut of Alexander Wang's runway show, Mary Kate has since set hearts fluttering at the rock chic beauty of the Coco Duffel's soft lambskin bag and gorgeous studded base. Rocker gals and 'style valiant' punk boys, this is the bag for you! (The size is somewhat small, so the boys will have to be very confident and bold in order flaunt this beauty. A reader has already sought my opinion about the bag and my advice is if you think you can rock it, then go ahead. On Pedder Singapore stocks this bag if any of you is interested. Price is around SGD $2300)

Alexander Wang's other bag designs are also equally interesting. Distressed and washed leathers in predominant colours of black add to a dark and sexy design theme. Simple and not over wrought with rocker bling, these bags have a 'understated' allure. The huge weekender size Daphne Duffel could be a good candidate for the boys who wants some of this rock chic style.

I am keenly awaiting to see if Alexander Wang will hear my pleas and come up with a larger size Coco duffel. I am now smitten by those 'feisty' looking studs:-P

same here!
I love the studded base. He should do one in a bigger size...like maybe 40 to 45 cm width.

The Coco duffel is available in 2 sizes...one mini and one regular. The bigger one is around 13" width only. Sucks...such a lovely bag.

Man bags need to be more exciting like the ladies:-P

Hey Kevin, the Trudy Leather Totes look like YSL Downtown's "siblings"! But they are definitely slouchy enough to hug! Do you have the measurements and price?
