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.
