I’ve been waiting for a designer to release a great looking glow-in-the-dark bag. Odd, I know, but I always look to my accessories to bring me a feeling of joy and fun, and what’s more fun than a good-looking bag that just so happens to glow in the dark when the lights go off? Leave it to the young and spunky Alexander Wang to give us what we’re looking for by offering glow-in-the-dark versions of a few of his classics, including the coveted Marion crossbody bag.

By day, the bag is simple and white, with a small body, metal closure and signature cap-corner details. Leave the bag under direct light for about an hour and take it into a dark room, though, and prepare to watch it glow. Until I see this bag in person, I can’t tell you exactly what the outside feels like, but I’ve heard there is no weird plastic-y finish. This is the kind of bag I’m drawn to; it’s beautiful while also being out-of-the-ordinary, something different is what I crave. Buy via Alexander Wang for $725.

    Love AW, so innovative.

  • I don’t get it. Why would I like my luxurious bag be glowing in the dark ? It associates me with everything but designer bag.

    • Catita

      I totally agree, I really don’t see the timeless/classic effect of a glow in the dark bag. I got the Marion in white too and I am GLAD IT DOESN’T glow in the dark!!!!

    I think this would be really cool for twenty somethings that go clubbing…and yes, they are a large part of alexander wang’s target audience, particularly with a bag like this (a crossbody strap is perfect for hands free dancing).

    Recently I was REALLY low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this!!! – 66mt

  • I’m a designer and I just released a glow in the dark acrylic clutch purse. I was influenced by the juxtaposition of negative/positive in photography or in the case of when it glows, an X-ray. Hope you enjoy! http://stefaniephan.com/product/only-in-the-dark-lace-painted-glow-in-the-dark-acrylic-clutch/
