Embracing the Alexander Wang aesthetic is easy in winter – you add in some black, and then some more black, and maybe a little black as a finishing touch. It also has to be sort of minimalist, but in a really non-minimalist way. Ta-da! There you go. But when weather gets warmer, sometimes people want to wear a color other than black (although I don’t know why anyone would want to do that, black’s great!), and then channeling Wang’s of-the-moment looks gets a little harder, particularly in the bag department.

Fret not, however, because the brand’s fashion mavens have created the much-loved Alexander Wang Donna Hobo in a faded, mossy green that will actually work with the boho colors and fabrics of summer without losing any of the bag’s signature edge. A Wang bag that you could wear with linen – mon dieu!

This color really lets you see the distressed, slouchy texture of the bag’s leather, and that’s one thing that’s really easy to miss in the more famous black version. The look of this bag might be slightly more boho than downtown, but I think that’s merely a testament to how versatile and stylish the elongated hobo’s shape really is. Buy through ShopBop for $795.

    Ehhh. Its OK. If I were looking to spend money on a bag, I dont think this would be it. (fb)

  • Julia

    Definitely DRAB. Sorry, but this bag looks cheap with all the zips hardware. I won’t pay $795 for it. (fb)

  • Chelsea

    This bag is too simple, the design is boring imo. It may have the “trendy” zippers and such, but they look very bland against the light color of the bag and just doesn’t add anything.

    I love this bag. I love Wang, until now, he has never disappointed me. I prefer the black one, and dislike a bit the color of the zippers in this version, but the color of the bag, I love. (fb)

    Looove this bag, always have! Hate the color though…

    • JiChi

      Ok, on second glance, I don’t hate the color. I normally hate moss green or military green or anything in that category, but this color is kind of nice!

  • Helena

    Nice colour & nice Hobo style-like it (fb)

  • gacats

    That zipper down the center makes this bag seem .. um, er, … pornographic. (fb)

  • mary s

    there are too many other good bags from so many designers for this bag to even be in the running.

    and can i say it looks like it cost about $20 to make and should be priced more in the $30-$40 range than in the $800 range (fb)

  • Amber

    I love the bag, not the price.
