A couple of weeks before the Super Bowl, I went on an intense internet hunt for this exact clutch. All I wanted to do was photograph it in front of the Super Bowl sign on Fort Lauderdale Beach. But no, I could not find it. It was no where to be found. And my perfect shutterbag image I was going to have Vlad take did not happen.
But here it is, of course not exactly when I wanted to see it but I welcome it. Everything about the Alexander Wang Spring 2010 collection spoke to me. Casual, sporty, chic can sum up his spring collection. The models, with their loose side braids, were the talk of the fashion world. Football touches were added to the wardrobe, either in the clothing design or the bags. I am in love with the Alexander Wang Brady Football Clutch which shows a quilted panel at the front and back and football laces-likes whipstitching at the front.
I actually love it so much that I kind of want to buy it. My supposed self-proposed shopping ban is truly not working, not in the least bit. As many of the long time readers know, the entire PurseBlog team loves football, especially college. We all went to football-centered colleges (GO BUCKEYES! Amanda is outnumbered three Ohio State Buckeyes to one Georgia Bulldog). It might be a bit silly to some of you, but I desperately want to carry this to all of the football games in the fall. Actually looking at this clutch is making me extremely happy just thinking of the upcoming football season.
Other details over the clutch include distressed luggage colored leather and the quilted panel I spoke of above. The whipstitching is at the front by the zipper and there is piping at the front and edges. The hardware is distressed silver. The dimensions are actually larger than you would imagine 11.5″H x 9″L, but there is a wrist strap at the main compartment closure. So, I want this. Who would have thought that Alexander Wang was influenced by the a favorite American pastime, football. And is this coined the ‘Brady’ clutch after Tom Brady? I would love to know. Buy through ShopBop for $395.
