Alexander Wang hit big this season with the must-have Coco Duffel. I liked it, but I wasn’t buying it. The reviews coming in have been mixed about the actual bag itself, though I feel like the price was so great it justified a little less quality than expected. Other bags from Alexander Wang include multiple pockets and a look I am just not digging. Don’t get me wrong, the celebrity carrying list is long, but a) did they actually pay for the bag and b) I still don’t like them.
Then there was the Alexander Wang Bianca Vest Bag, which we keep staring at and wondering if, when, and how it will catch on. There is success with the bag though, the success of publicity. We may be hating on it, but we are talking about it and that is giving Alexander Wang that much more press.
What is my point of this post you are wondering? ShopBop found a model that looked more comfortable sporting this vest bag and she makes it look believable and edgy it as a backpack. I do not want it and if I wore it I would look ridiculous, but Wang may have intended for this bag to be worn by a select few. You know who would totally rock this bag ridiculously well? Rumi from FashionToast. Vest bag still available via ShopBop for $850.
