Alexander Wang Spring 2014 Handbags (2)

More than any other designer at his contemporary price point, Alexander Wang has a tendency to put difficult-to-carry bags on his New York Fashion Week runways. Most similar designers use their shows as a vehicle to introduce their highly profitable marquee accessories to a potentially adoring public, but Wang generally goes the way of his more-expensive brethren and saves the cash cow bags for his lookbooks. Instead, his runways feature a few handbag shapes that set the tone for what’s to come from the rest of the collection.

It’s a bit of a departure, then, that for Spring 2014, most of Wang’s runway bags look actually wearable. In particular, the softly geometric clutches look like a sure bet. (Another near-sure bet: they’ll come with crossbody straps to make them even more practical once the bags hit retail.) The oversize satchels will be a bit of a tougher sell, but in scaled-down versions (and Wang almost always releases smaller versions of oversized runway bags), they should be well-liked by Wang’s usual fans. Intriguingly, the satchels also appeared to have three-point handle attachments on their undersides, hinting that perhaps an optional backpack setup will accompany those designs at retail. How of-the-moment.

    I don’t understand all those hard lined/sided shapes, how is that practical?

    I’ve never liked his bags to be honest (with the exception with the Pelican satchel) and his brand in general. It’s just looks like DIVIDED from H&M for rich people.

    I am so surprised I really like this bags a lot. I think the hard side works best as a clutch. I like the pink color and the X detailing a lot.

    Recently I was really, really low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – fzag
