A couple of weeks before the Super Bowl, I went on an intense internet hunt for this exact clutch. All I wanted to do was photograph it in front of the Super Bowl sign on Fort Lauderdale Beach. But no, I could not find it. It was no where to be found. And my perfect shutterbag image I was going to have Vlad take did not happen.

But here it is, of course not exactly when I wanted to see it but I welcome it. Everything about the Alexander Wang Spring 2010 collection spoke to me. Casual, sporty, chic can sum up his spring collection. The models, with their loose side braids, were the talk of the fashion world. Football touches were added to the wardrobe, either in the clothing design or the bags. I am in love with the Alexander Wang Brady Football Clutch which shows a quilted panel at the front and back and football laces-likes whipstitching at the front.

I actually love it so much that I kind of want to buy it. My supposed self-proposed shopping ban is truly not working, not in the least bit. As many of the long time readers know, the entire PurseBlog team loves football, especially college. We all went to football-centered colleges (GO BUCKEYES! Amanda is outnumbered three Ohio State Buckeyes to one Georgia Bulldog). It might be a bit silly to some of you, but I desperately want to carry this to all of the football games in the fall. Actually looking at this clutch is making me extremely happy just thinking of the upcoming football season.

Other details over the clutch include distressed luggage colored leather and the quilted panel I spoke of above. The whipstitching is at the front by the zipper and there is piping at the front and edges. The hardware is distressed silver. The dimensions are actually larger than you would imagine 11.5″H x 9″L, but there is a wrist strap at the main compartment closure. So, I want this. Who would have thought that Alexander Wang was influenced by the a favorite American pastime, football. And is this coined the ‘Brady’ clutch after Tom Brady? I would love to know. Buy through ShopBop for $395.

  • Karin bag4bag

    Well each to their own!! I don’t get the appeal, but we don’t have anything like college football in Aust., so this bag is just ugly to me. ..Sounds exciting though, so GO TEAM !

  • Linda

    This is a joke, right? It was taken from the mishaps file, right? Not funny!

    that looks demented…

  • Loquita

    Wang is never boring, that’s for sure! And I definitely think that this one is named after Tom Brady – who went to the University of Michigan – my alma mater. :)

    Even though I’m a major fan of AW’s designs, this one is a bit too literal even for me. In fact, it’s downright fugly – but at least AW had the decency to not offer a hideous bag at a ridiculously offensive price, unlike, say, Versace.

    ugliest bag ever and i wouldn’t pay 5$ for it.

  • patiofurnitureswing

  • Julie

    Looks like a walnut..

  • ShoeQueen1961

    What the?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    P.S. Check out Mr. Wang’s newest shoe boots… They are to die for–unlike this thing masquerading as a handbag!

  • Chris

    I am from Europe so I could not care less. Sorry. Football is very regional, it is mainly played in the US, nowhere else.

  • simplegirl

    looks stupid…

  • Gia

    i’m not a football fan at all but the boyfriend plays semi-pro football. This would be great to wear to his games since i am not a jersey girl!

  • Nancy

    EWWWWEEEEE! This has to be a joke.

  • Chi

    this would have been cute to bring if you went to the super bowl or the rose bowl!

  • Issy

  • Joy

    ran out of ideas much?
    interesting and unique
    but not something i would want to buy for 395 :P

  • dcblam

    I am with you Megs, there’s something charming about this bag – and it’s so rough n’ tumble. The color, the stitching with the quilting, and I know that it must be soft in ones hand……..
    can’t wait for it to come….IF my order goes through w/OC!!

  • anncesca

    I just bought this.. one of those impulse buying :( i thought it was cute so i got it but i’m not really a football fan so i feel like i’m forcing it and it doesn’t suit me. if you’re still interested in one, let me know. i still have the receipt so you know it’s authentic (got it only for $300), the tag is still attached and i also have the dustbag.

  • Naggy

    It looks like a very old, deflated football. (ipad)
