Alexander Wang has always been a designer who played up his industrial aesthetic leanings, and after a few seasons of flirtation with tech-influenced streetwear, Spring 2016 has brought the designer back to his roots for his eponymous brand’s tenth anniversary collection.

Wang’s runway bags are always the most ambitious of the much larger line he’ll eventually send to stores, and this year that ambition manifested itself in lots of metal detailing, mostly by way of heavy chains and snaps used as studs. The chain-detailed bags are definitely cool-looking, but one wonders how comfortable they’ll actually be to carry.

Check out the runway bags below.

Messy. Some of these bags I can’t make heads or tails of their shape and silhouette. What exactly is slide 11supposed to look like?!

A broken punk bagpipe? Moto goatskin water bottle? No idea. And which part is the handle?

Contrast of the chain and bag/fabric is too strong. The shape of the links should have been softened. Chains look like they came straight form Home Depot.
Maybe they looked better in person and in context.

Simply ugly and look like they’ll weight a ton. I don’t think I’ll even want to check out on them.
