Coming late to a trend isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the world. When Valentino first debuted its Rockstuds, I remember being surprised the brand was going all-in on the look after every other brand on the planet had already given studs a thorough run and started moving on the next thing. We all know what happened with the Rockstuds; a bang-on interpretation of a down-turning trend can change the whole game.

Bucket bags have been a big thing in the accessories market for several years now, and even Mansur Gavriel, whose hard-to-find debut bucket bag rocketed the brand to immense popularity and spawned a thousand copycats, is now focusing on other shapes. Alexander Wang, though, sent multiple interpretations of his Roxy Bag down his Spring 2017 runway, including some that cuffed to the models’ wrists. Wang’s clearly betting that he can goad consumers into embracing the bucket a bit longer.

I’m not sure that the Roxy is the design to do that, though. In its mini version, the bag makes a compelling alternative to a clutch for women who are inclined to buck traditional ideas about evening bags, but as a day bag, it’s not exceptional enough to go the distance.

In addition to the bucket bags, Wang also debuted new flap shoulder bags and tiny crossbodies that appear to be intended to hold a phone and little more. Check out all the bags from the show below.

Disappointing for sure! I adore my navy Rockie with gold hardware and wish AW would go back to that aesthetic. I do think he could do better with the lovely neon leathers and suedes shown above.

Kinda funny seeing the furry leg in slide 12. That’s all I’m saying about this collection.

i may be a minority but Alexander Wang makes some tacky, ghetto bags – maybe its the athleticism that i dont understand but its simply UGLY

These bags look okay on the runway/in photo’s but that’s where it ends for me. I only sangho buy bags I can wear daily. Bucket bags are hideous I will never understand the trend of a bag that looks like a glorified potato sack.

Those bags with the chain embellished detail in the leather are really pretty. That is a unique design I’ve never seen before.

I think bucket bags are waning; even Mansur Gavriel has moved on.

With all my heart I dislikes the attitude people post a product, a bag of designer, without a link on it
