Alexander Wang’s Sneaker Bags Seem to Have Found Their Audience

Categories:Other Brands

Today in Things I Didn’t Expect: Alexander Wang offered a very limited pre-order of his very literal, sneaker-inspired Spring 2015 runway bags on his website yesterday, and the three bags, all priced in the mid-$1,000 range, were sold out and completely gone from the site within a matter of hours. As we mentioned earlier today, the fashion community’s thirst for novelty pieces seems almost insatiable right now.

The bags, which appeared on Wang’s Spring 2015 runway two weeks ago in New York, were a limited edition sneak peek of the full collection. When we first wrote about the bags, you guys didn’t seem too impressed, and I’d wager a guess that your views are unchanged now that you know they’re at the top end of the brand’s normal price range.

I’d give you more information on exact prices and model names, but save for this one photo I managed to capture, the bags have been scrubbed from the site after their apparent sell-through. The rest of the sneaker-bag-hungry masses will have to wait until the collection because available early next year.

Alexander Wang Rocco Bag In Neoprene Injected Black

Categories:Other Brands

Alexander-Wang-Rocco-in-Neoprene-Injected-Black

 

The Alexander Wang Rocco Handbag is not a new bag, but for the Fall and Winter 2014 Collection, it’s being reinvented and re-styled.

Usually the Rocco comes with pebbled leather and nowadays they are available in plenty of colors. This bag is famous for its studded bottom; especially ‘rose gold’ is simply to-die-for.

But anyways, the new Rocco bag is made in neoprene injected black leather and to be honest, it’s looks more like an accessory to company your ‘tough girl’ appearance, the ‘motorcycle’ type of look. Carry this bag, hop on your motor and travel the cities.

If you take another glance, the body of the bag also appears to be, or look quite similar to a tire of a car.

The Alexander Wang Rocco Bag in Neoprene Injected Black comes with two zipper pockets in one exterior gusset, a shoulder strap with a signature dog clips, an interior zipped pocket with logo patch and phone pocket, so basically enough compartments to store our essentials.

Measuring 13.5’ x 9.25’ x 9.25’ (L x H x W) inches, priced at $995 USD via Alexander Wang e-store.

Alexander McQueen Launches A Fragrance House

Categories:Fashion

If you’re an Alexander McQueen girl, mark your calendar, because today is a historic day. Alexander McQueen, the ultimate go-to label for feathers and killer art in fashion, is finally launching its own fragrance house and the first scent called McQueen Parfum! Let all the bells ring, because we’re celebrating, European-style!

Alexander McQueen Parfum

The first product to descend to us from the heavenly creative factories of McQueen has been in the works for 3 years and is for the night owls… dark, mysterious, and feathery (feathers everywhere!). The main theme of this long-awaited scent is a flowery bloom at night. Some of the main ingredients are jasmine, tuberose and the tropical ylang-ylang. Together with these three flowers, the top notes also include clove, vetiver, pink and black pepper.

Obviously, it is a flower-based scent, but it’s also McQueen. So do not expect anything flowery in the usual sense of the meaning. Judging from the atmosphere around the perfume and the bottle design, it is as dark as the night itself. In fact, the box also comes with a guidebook about the ingredients of the scent, where they originated from, the qualities of the notes and how they were placed to make up the entire composition.

The ad campaign for the perfume was shot by Paolo Roversi. Maartje Verhoef poses in the forest of Fontainbleau, not too far away from Paris, locked in the trees and caged by the branches. That should inspire you! Pay a close attention to the dress that was specially made for this campaign. Designed by Sarah Burton herself, it looks like garlands of dark flowers circling Verhoef’s body.

Burton commented on the perfume right after the London show, saying, “It’s about nighttime, dreams, obsessions, collections and the sub-conscious.” It does sound like a scent every woman would want, but be cautious there, the perfume is actually not for every woman. It is designed specifically for the McQueen woman and therefore is a scent you either love or hate. “The thing about the McQueen woman is that she has a uniqueness and a real strength of personality,” said Burton.

The Alexander McQueen perfume will be available exclusively at Harrods starting March 1st. The price for this night elixir will be 350 euros for a 50ml bottle. If this is too much for you at the moment, you can wait a little more and acquire the lower-priced eau de parfum in summer. The reason why the perfume is so high-priced is the quality of the scent due to high concentration of ingredients. It is heavier than eau de parfum so a drop of the McQueen fragrance might last an entire day on your neck.

If you happen to be anywhere in London, Paris, or Monaco, you can grab your bottle from the developer and distributor of the perfume, P&G Prestige Beauty. Finally, remember that this is not the first scent developed by McQueen. The precedents were Kingdom and My Queen, but their shelf life ended by 2008.

The official hashtag of the campaign is #bloomatnight, so if your dark mind wants to share an opinion about this upcoming scent, don’t resist the temptation, let us and the producers know what you think!

McQ by Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW – NYFW

Categories:Fashion

If you like Alexander McQueen, then you certainly love the younger, and quite a bit naughtier sibling to the brand, known as McQ. The main things to know about the McQ by Alexander McQueen fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection shown off at the New York Fashion Week? Oversized is a must, proportions are to be wondered about, longer is better, layered is the way to go and it is all not quite what we would expect. There is something very much Gvasalia’s Vetements about it all. There is something rebelliously gothic about it all, in a naïve kind of way.

McQ by Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW - NYFW

Think Tokyo, about 3 to 4 decades back. The 1970s and ‘80s are the decade we are looking at and it is the eastern regions we turn our eyes to. Biker bars, dance clubs, bar scenes, strippers and culture clashes… this is the general theme that we are sensing along with most others looking towards the runway. We see outdated obi belts, some shapes reminiscent to a kimono, and lots of interesting modern looks, such as the long favorite shearling coats, the ponchos and the tees, while the high white patent boots are truly interesting to enjoy.

We notice leather jackets and turtlenecks in red, high waist skirts that button down the center and sexy thigh high boots in white and black. Lace-up shoes and ankle cropped trousers are all over, with some graphic tees to really add some sparkle to it all.

There is a certain lack of color to the collection as a whole, with a focus on the black and sometimes the white, bringing in shades of red with crimson and maroon, while a single coat in shearling is of a light beige camel color. It is hard not to love the line-up, from the boots with the laces in the back to the young girl looks, the ruffles on the dresses and the velvet skirts, the trench style jackets and the long dresses in black, flowing about the legs and showing off beautiful décolletage.

We love the single long dress in black and white floral prints with a graphic tee worn underneath, and we are enjoying the bare faces that line the whole of the collection, from top to bottom. There is a certain amount of sexiness to watch out for, especially in the leather jacket style dress with the silver sippers and hardware, worn with black suede thigh high boots. It has a certain appeal few of the other outfits exude. It is as if the fall line is there to cater both to those who have a love for long and covered, as well as those who like the mini hems and showing off a bit of leg skin.
