In keeping with previous season, we didn’t get to see all the accessories goods at Alexander Wang Fall 2011. Wang tends to leave the bigger bags for press photos and send clutches down the runway in order to give us a diminutive taste of what’s to come for the season purses, and that’s exactly what he did, this time with little wallet-sized clutches and handheld bags with fur tassels.

Many of the bags had metal corners, which mirrored Wang’s Spring 2011 accessories details and also tied the somewhat simple shapes and ideas back to Wang’s downtown, cool-girl aesthetic. What was somewhat unexpected was Wang’s use of uber-glossy patent, much of which I’m hoping won’t make its way to retail in the form of larger bags. I’d prefer to see more vibrant crimson instead.

    I’ve ever loved the bags of wang and his style because it was so anticonformist. But here, the bags are “too vuitton” and are something “boring”, the dresses and the shoes are like creations fo a designer who tries to be creative and innvoative but seems only stupid and boring…please!

    With the exception of the red patent one (ick) those are all wallets.

    Not impressed. I have come to the realization that Wang is just not my bag. I didn’t even fall for the Rocco.

    Not that crazy. Will still keep the eyes on bigger bags.

    I like the ones that kinda look like books, but I’d prefer to go literal and carry Kate Spade for that look.

    Unfortunately these are quite dull. The metallic finishes look cheap and 2007. I wish he used amazing leathers and mixed in some color blocking. The fur additions are very last year and since LV did not make them mainstream…Wang certainly is not.

    Not a fan of these bags. but his previous collections were amazing, I guess there would be a downfall at one point, which is now.

    it will be nicer if it has a sling bag.
