As Alexander Wang’s line grows and grows, he shows fewer and fewer bags on the runway, much to my dismay. Alexander Wang Fall 2012 yielded enough accessories for us to get an impression of what we should expect come fall, but too few to really satisfy my curiosity as a Wang fangirl. I’ll be waiting impatiently for images of the full line to emerge.
Until then, it seems like we’re in for a little bit of Wang by way of Louis Vuitton, at least where the runway bags are concerned. Big, crisp duffels and smaller clutches alike sported locks and clochettes that were more reminiscent of the great French accessories houses than Alexander Wang’s particular brand of downtown cool. A more complete look would have been nice, but my interest is piqued and I’m looking forward to seeing the entirety of what Wang does with the somewhat foreign elegance of these handbags.
