I figure I might as well admit it now, since it should be becoming increasingly obvious for anyone that reads this blog regularly. Wang is an original voice in an accessories landscape that got a little boring for a moment, and his deconstructed, hipster-friendly bags have been seen gracing the arms and shoulders of Hollywood It-Girls with alarming consistency since they debuted last year. Any good trend needs its shameless cheerleaders – gimme an A.
And today’s Wang pick is the Alexander Wang Tina Zip Clutch. Thoroughly affordable for a bag from an It designer, it can be used as either a hand-held clutch or a shoulder bag with the oh-so-current long strap. It has lots of zipper details, as is also fashionable at the moment, but the best part is the pebbly, soft black leather, a staple of the brand. I’ll take two. Buy through ShopBop for $590.
