Alexander Wang Leather Devere

Categories:Other Brands

alexander_wang_devereEvery once in a while I’ll hit THE OUTNET to see if there was anything interesting. Frankly, while it’s usually a case of why-is-it-still-so-expensive-when-it-is-supposed-to-be-an-outlet, or where-ugly-bags-go-to-die, there are gems from time to time and today’s post will prove it.

First thing that caught my eye was the Alexander Wang Devere, a boxy leather handbag that you’ll either adore for being such a uniquely-shaped piece or abhor for being so, well, uniquely-shaped. It’s not a bag that’s made for everyone, but for those who like its strong, sculptural lines that are still somewhat ladylike, you’ll also love the fact that the 28 cm by 25 cm leather bag is also now around GBP250 after a hefty 60% discount.

Good for work or play, my only gripe is perhaps the colour it comes in, which while pristine when it’s brand new will definitely be stained and marked over time. Also from Alexander Wang, do check out the well-sized unisex Pelican Weekender that’s also 60% off and comes in at around SGD800 after discount.

Other great deals to be had include the Lytton clutches (one’s GBP96, the other,GBP124 after discount) from Diane von Furstenberg, Marano clutches and SLGs from Anya Hindmarch, and of course, selected clutches and shoulder bags from Valentino. Just wish the discounts were a tad deeper though.

Alexander Wang Small Lia Shoulder Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Let’s be honest, who can put studs on the bottom of their bags like Alexander Wang? There are many studded bags, but we think Alexander have refined its work.

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2015 Collection - Paris Fashion Week

Rocco is a famous example of a tote with a feminine-tough appearance. Though some people complain that the studs are a bit heavy, but the design is utterly to-crave-for. And well, if you want to look pretty, you need to sacrifice comfort right?

Alexander Wang has introduced a smaller version of their Classic Lia Sling bag, which we think is qualified for this and the next summer season. Colorful and embellished with beautiful studs on the bottom that shines like diamonds. I love the seasonal shade of Rose or Pepermint.

Measuring 9.5 x 8 x 3.5 Inch (L x H x W), it comes with an adjustable strap. Don’t settle for the black, go for the summer look.

Alexander Wang Large Chastity Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Let Alexander Wang roll new bags to keep our fashion hot and fresh. In the fall 2013 runway, Alexander Wang showed their new Chastity sling bag for the first time. It was captivating, the first thing that came into our mind was it was boxy, squared and definitely a good thing for the working-girl or the business woman. With an extra long strap to carry around your shoulder or take it by hand like a small suitcase.

The medium size was good enough to hold all-the-things needed to keep your work running, like documents, A4 papers, agenda or even iPad. And now, to our surprise, Alexander Wang has introduced a newer version of the chastity collection and they simply named it: ‘Large Bag’, but the appearance is totally different.

First the tubular handles are integrated in the front instead of the top, and then the bag is a bit taller and less boxy, embellished with a beautiful snake-skin chain attached to the zipper. It looks kind-of the Celine Phantom bag, you got the eyes and the mouth (smile!!!). The bottom studs add a touch of luxury to it.

Zimmermann Hits the NYFW Runway

Categories:Fashion

Is it just us, or is Zimmermann one of the highlights of New York Fashion Week? While, yes, we are major fans of Phillip Lim, and Alexander Wang will always get our vote (and credit card details), there's something so feminine about every single piece in the Zimmermann collection. Plus, there's the little fact that this big name was Made In Australia. 

While we admittedly prefer having the homegrown label on the local schedule, Zimmermann's presence in the US is growing by the minute. "We've always had a really great response in the US," designer Nicky Zimmermann told POPSUGAR Australia. And if you need proof that this label is one of our biggest exports, remember this: Zimmermann recently expanded their flagship US store to a bigger, better boutique, located on Mercer Street. The NYC store is Zimmermann's biggest worldwide, and is in pretty impressive company, nestled amongst other big names like A.P.C, Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang.

So what sets Zimmermann apart from the dozens of fledgling fashion brands trying to make it big in New York? "Our aesthetic is very different to what other designers do in the US. We’re obviously influenced a lot by where we come from and people seem to enjoy our approach to colour and print and the optimistic approach to our collections. I think since we've had our own stores in New York and LA over the last few years that it’s really helped paint more of a picture of what we do and what Zimmermann is about," Nicky said.

Front row at this season's show was a cool round-up of Australia's most stylish women, with Lara Bingle, Nicole Trunfio, Emma Lung and Harper's Bazaar US executive editor Laura Brown keen to get close to the action on the runway. But, Nicky would happily do a little switch with the front row: "I just wish I could be front row at one of our shows for once. As a designer you spend all this time and energy working on a collection and you never get to see the show how everyone else sees it," she joked. 

Nicky says the collection, titled 'Cloud Stompers', is brighter than your ordinary Fall line: "It's very textural, colour and prints are very rich and there is a lot of intricate detailing combining metals and fabric." Scroll on to see what this iconic Aussie export delivered for Fall 2014 (that's Spring for us Down Under).

Alexander Wang Makes a Chic Slingback Flat

Categories:Other Brands

Alexander Wang Irene Sandals

Dressing for in-between seasons can be tricky. Transitional cutout booties are a great way to start both the fall and spring seasons, but sometimes they can be a bit clunky for those occasional warmer days. Known for his sporty, sometimes-androgynous designs, Alexander Wang is giving us a new way to look at transitional footwear with his new Irene Flat.

This pared-down Alexander Wang design isn’t one that I would normally gravitate toward, nor does it fit into my style, but I’m intrigued. I envision myself wearing these sandals with rolled-up boyfriend jeans and my favorite chunky-knit turtleneck. These shoes were made for the minimalist at heart, but if you are like me and tend be on the maximal side of things, you may be surprised how well these can work for you.
