I saw the Alexander Wang Rocco Rose Gold Bag and it was love. at. first. sight. I could not resist and here it is in all its glory. Mine. ALL mine. *claps hands*
I love rose gold – it’s metal made pretty and I was so struck with the rose gold hardware at the bottom. It screams edgy rock chic and Alexander Wang is renowned for his hard edged glamour.
It’s made from thick pebbled effect leather which makes it sturdy. I like the fact that it’s made from pebbled rather than smooth leather as it will age well and won’t scratch easily.
It’s been well documented that Rocco bags tend to be heavy (because of the hardware). It’s forced me to be sensible about what I choose to carry around on a daily basis – this is not a bad thing. Hello organised Sammy!
I am also very pleased to report that the main leather handles have stretched (ever so slightly) so that I can wear it over my shoulder and not just on the crook of my arm.
Rocco packs a mean punch and I’m now eyeing up other colours…… oh.dear.
