Is anyone here experiencing Rocco fatigue yet? I’m not over the style since Alexander Wang’s designs work so well with my personal aesthetic, but I’m assuming that some people out there have to be. The Alexander Wang Rocco Bag is entering its third season of production, and to keep things interesting, Wang has introduced a few new colors for this season. For me, the one that stands out the most is what he calls “mustard.”

The actual shade is perhaps too green to really deserve its moniker, but I find it interesting nonetheless. Chartreuse and its many variations have seeped into the fashion industry’s color palette as of late, and I think that this version of “grellow” belongs in that family. The color would pop against a black outfit but it still has enough of a tan undertone to play neutral, so I’m cautiously optimistic about this shade’s fashion opportunities. It’s certainly not something everyone will want to carry, though. Larger picture and price information, after the jump.

Buy through ShopBop for $875.

    Maybe it’s the lighting, but it looks dirty to me…

    Maybe the color works better in person, but there’s no way I’d pick this color over a good black or sage or even maroon.

    No, i won’t pick it, and the price is too high.

    I hate to say it, but my first thought on the color was “baby poop.”

    It’s too close to camel, which I know is the It color of the season, but I dislike it.

  • Nat

    looks dirty and baby poop, but i kind of like it!
    what i dont like is the texture of the leather.

    I love it! Have the original black Rocco and its beautiful. It would be fun to get this color.

    This colour reminds me of the pea soup that Regan spewed out from the movie, “The Exorcist.” So, no, I think I will pass.

    I actually have this bag – this one looks like it’s filthy. I have a fabulous bright chartreuse version (it is beginning to show a big of fatigue on the sides where it rubs up against my side) but it looks NOTHING like this. I think this just may be an old purse/bag picture.
