As an unapologetic Alexander Wang fangirl, I can’t help but be interested by the Alexander Wang Walker Doodle Print Backpack. It’s not a particularly functional wardrobe piece, nor is it really special enough to be a collector’s item, but it makes me smile and consider going down to the craft store to get some fabric markers. I guess that makes this bag somewhat inspirational, right?

My interests have always skewed toward urban and industrialist style, so anything vaguely graffiti-inspired grabs my intention immediately. This design is somewhere between graffiti and a heavily doodled-upon notebook, and I bet that I could recreate it on an inexpensive bag of my own. Come to think of it, that might be kind of a fun weekend art project.

And maybe that’s not such a bad idea, if you like the look of this bag or are interested in graffiti in general. That way, you can incorporate the colors that you often wear and…you know what, never mind. This bag is kind of a fun concept if you don’t think about it for too long, but when you get down to it, there are far better ways to spend over $400. Come to think of it, there are probably better ways to spend the $30 that you’d shell out to make your own. Go buy yourself a fancy lunch. Buy through ShopBop for $450.

    Cute?=yes, pratical?=no. This would be something I would buy on a whim on say a vacation wear down there and them come home stick in my closet and never carry again….still it is pretty cute..

    I’d like doodles instead of scribbles.

    When one of my sons was about 3 years old, he did something similar to his bedroom wall. He was so proud and came running into our bedroom to wake us up and show us what he “created”. Who knew he was a budding designer?! Maybe I am just too old to appreciate this bag but I wouldn’t part with $450 for something like this!

    Amazing backapck but I’m wondering…this is a reasonable price?? please, ok that wang is cool and trendy and glamorous and chic but this price is absolutely crazy also for an household name!

    Cute, but I think I’d rather donate to one of the 12 million unemployed Americans.

    doodles, is that a new word for a great markup on production costs?

  • Stylista

    Oh A Wang…love his creatively, and appreciated everything he does, but sometimes just doesn’t fit my style.

    The name alone puts me off ! Completely overpriced and over doodled.
