I know what you are all thinking: “Megs, you already bought this bag, didn’t like it, and returned it”. You will be right in thinking that. Call me crazy but this exact Alexander Wang Rocco Bag has been haunting me since the day I wanted it, the day I got it, and the day I returned it. It still is not the bag for me, but if you don’t mind the weight and the lack of shape of the bag, you may need to buy this Rocco before it sells out. Part of the Net-A-Porter end of season sale, the Alexander Wang Rocco with wavy stitch detailing is marked 30% down. (more…)
One of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, is when Toula’s father Guss recovers his mother who is constantly running away and says, “Hey everybody, look who’s back again!”. Clearly reading that line loses every bit of hilarious context in the movie, but it not only applies perfect to the movie but also to this bag.
The original, classic Alexander Wang Rocco is in stock on Alexander Wang online right now. The classic is the black leather with brass studs. This is the most sought after combo of the bag that was originally named the Coco, though the name seems to have caused some legal problems hence the name change. The Rocco continues to garner an immense amount of press and buzz, with everyone wanting to get their hands on this particular combination. You all may recall my lackluster feeling toward my Rocco I ordered and eventually returned, but it does not take away from my respect for the design and idea of the bag.
Buy now via Alexander Wang online for $875.
The Alexander Wang Rocco in a style that I was obsessing over for its sporty chic vibe. This version of the Rocco had my heart. The wavy-stitched detailing added such a nice dimension to the luggage-colored leather, alongside the ridged silver tone studs at the bottom. And when I saw it online I had to have it. Perfection!

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…)
