As an unapologetic Alexander Wang fangirl, I can’t help but be interested by the Alexander Wang Walker Doodle Print Backpack. It’s not a particularly functional wardrobe piece, nor is it really special enough to be a collector’s item, but it makes me smile and consider going down to the craft store to get some fabric markers. I guess that makes this bag somewhat inspirational, right?
My interests have always skewed toward urban and industrialist style, so anything vaguely graffiti-inspired grabs my intention immediately. This design is somewhere between graffiti and a heavily doodled-upon notebook, and I bet that I could recreate it on an inexpensive bag of my own. Come to think of it, that might be kind of a fun weekend art project.
And maybe that’s not such a bad idea, if you like the look of this bag or are interested in graffiti in general. That way, you can incorporate the colors that you often wear and…you know what, never mind. This bag is kind of a fun concept if you don’t think about it for too long, but when you get down to it, there are far better ways to spend over $400. Come to think of it, there are probably better ways to spend the $30 that you’d shell out to make your own. Go buy yourself a fancy lunch. Buy through ShopBop for $450.
