CONFIRMED: Alexander Wang to Head Up Balenciaga!

30 Nov

Although the news won’t  be officially announced until next week, it has been confirmed that 28-year-old Alexander Wang known for his clean yet edgy aesthetic has landed the job as Balenciaga’s new Creative Director.  Rumors have been swirling for some time as Wang was a top candidate for the position. In just five years, Wang’s own label has become very successful and his creations have plenty of commercial appeal. His shoes and handbags are top-sellers as well as  his diffusion line T by Alexander Wang. He will have his work cut out for him juggling this new position in addition to his steadily growing label, but I think he’ll do just fine!

Alexander Wang Rocco Bag Review!

28 Nov

Hey guys, I hope you’re doing amazing today. As you all know I did a post on the Alexander Wang Rocco bag with rose gold hardware in early October……I must admit, I  quickly became obsessed!!!!  I ended up caving after about 2 weeks (the fastest I have caved for any handbag) and treated myself to the bag.  Needless to say I LOVE IT and have been wanting to do a review on it and have gotten quite a few requests to do so as well….soooooo today while shooting some pictures for my OOTD on Instagram I took a couple extra shots of the bag to share with you and wanted to talk about a couple of things that I’ve noticed are missing from a lot of other Rocco reviews.

*The bag is beautiful OBVIOUSLY!  * I love the top handles in addition to a shoulder strap although it’s NOT long enough for cross body wear.  * I love the pebbled leather  * I love love love the rose gold hardware, matches a lot of my jewelry, namely my wedding set:) * the rose gold is a very nice tone, not the overpowering ultra cheesy pink shade that some rose gold hardware can have. * heavy-duty and very well made bag* the trademark studded bottom is very cool without being too crazy * the bag has the feel of the LV Speedy with a little more edge

NOW onto the 2 most important points…

1.CON: This bag is HEAVY! I’m talking 4 pounds!!!! EMPTY!  I personally don’t mind it but I know some of you might.

2. PRO: This bag has 2 “secret” pockets outside of the bag……I use one for keys, one for phone & lipstick. I like accessing my phone, keys etc without having to dig around the bottom of the bag.

There you have it…..overall my only con is the weight of the bag, everything else wonderful!!!!!! If you’re on the fence about this bag…..I say go for it!  It will be in your collection for decades to come!

Bag Crush!

3 Oct

I’ve always liked the Alexander Wang Rocco bag, a buttery soft bag with studs on the bottom for a little bit of edge.  I first spotted the bag on Kristin Cavallari a few years back and have since seen them everywhere. I really liked  how there were different color options for the studs like gold, black nickel, silver etc. I just didn’t find that it “spoke” to my heart which is a must when you’re spending a pretty penny……UNTIL NOW……I just about DIED recently when I saw this bag in person with rose gold hardware!  It was speaking to me then!!!!!!!! It is a beauty for sure with just enough super shiny rose studs gold against the soft black pebbled leather and  two rolled top handles and a shoulder strap make the bag versatile and easy to wear.

 

Rocco Bag $925 available HERE.

I am in love with this bag.

NYFW Alexander Wang S/S 2013

9 Sep

Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

This collection brought to mind urban street style meets uniformity.  The palette was neutral.  I would have liked to see a touch more color for Spring but Wang is known for his edgy aesthetic and futuristic minimalism, so such simplicity is to be expected. T-shirts and dresses with boxy silhouettes dominated while there was plenty of slashed up leather which Wang called “leather blocking”.  There were also more knee-high sandals which will be a big trend for Fall.
