Today in Things I Didn’t Expect: Alexander Wang offered a very limited pre-order of his very literal, sneaker-inspired Spring 2015 runway bags on his website yesterday, and the three bags, all priced in the mid-$1,000 range, were sold out and completely gone from the site within a matter of hours. As we mentioned earlier today, the fashion community’s thirst for novelty pieces seems almost insatiable right now.
The bags, which appeared on Wang’s Spring 2015 runway two weeks ago in New York, were a limited edition sneak peek of the full collection. When we first wrote about the bags, you guys didn’t seem too impressed, and I’d wager a guess that your views are unchanged now that you know they’re at the top end of the brand’s normal price range.
I’d give you more information on exact prices and model names, but save for this one photo I managed to capture, the bags have been scrubbed from the site after their apparent sell-through. The rest of the sneaker-bag-hungry masses will have to wait until the collection because available early next year.
