The Coco is named because of the brass studded bottom, and the designs that feature different studded colors of this new iconic Alexander Wang are named the Rocco. Actually, the name Coco seems to no longer be used for legal reasons (we are trying to find more information). Alexander Wang has made more than a name for himself with the Coco and Rocco Duffel bags. The bags have been on everyone’s radar, hard for people to find and hard for those that find them to pass up. Part of the joy of these bags is the seemingly affordable price for a pebbled leather bag with an edgy underside.
Just in, Net A Porter has the Alexander Wang Rocco in black stamped leather with a glossy black studded bottom. No need to discuss it further, you all know the bag by now. If you have been searching, and the brass or silver studs were too in your face, this version may be perfect for you. Buy through NAP before it sells out for $875. (more…)
