Whether you like it or not, Alexander Wang is bound and determined to make backpacks happen. And if he has his way, golf bags, too. Or, at the very least, leather backpacks so long that they look like they might hold a set of junior-size clubs. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Alexander Wang Spring 2012 Handbags is a collection full of backpacks both great and small.
Those are the kind of bags that I always think surely will never hit retail but always somehow end up in stores anyway. I’m not certain why buyers think anyone but the most hardcore Wang fans want a backpack that goes down to the backs of their knees, but those who do can call the designer’s store to get it. As for the regular-sized backpacks, sign me up immediately.
