Alexander Wang Denim Leather Coco Duffel



Is it possible for a design to "jump the shark" before the season it was designed for has even begun? Just yesterday, I shared a rumor that the "it bag" of the moment, the Alexander Wang Coco Duffel, would be released with silver studs. I know I was excited to see the design with the more appropriate silver hardware, but I now realize that the silver studs were meant for this thing. The Coco Duffel has been subjected to the denim-looking leather Wang is so fond of. They've taken away the textured black leather that was so hot and replaced it with something that would look more at home in a flea market. Granted, the silver works better with the denim color than the gold studs would have, but that's not really saying much. Can you tell how much I dislike this version of the Coco Duffel? I sure hope they release a black leather (not denim-looking black leather) version with silver studs soon so it can erase the memory of this horrid bag from my mind.

    YIKES...this denimesque leather is disgusting and it seems like Wang uses it for EVERYTHING! He needs to make this up to us. Maybe a navy or plum version with silver studs?!?

    Navy or plum? Be still my heart! I'd jump on either one faster than Paris Hilton can break up with her next boyfriend.

    Yes i agree. I have seen denim like this before but it was not on a designer "it" bag rather out of the Wilson's Leather scrap donation bin! I hope he got a deal.
