This bag fuses a couple of emerging trends, and it does so in an unexpected material. We have the letter A in a varsity font for the varsity trend, a trend that hinges on a high end take on preppiness as well as varsity jackets (and esp my favorite, the Balenciaga FW 09 men’s varsity jacket). Also, backpacks are coming back. Since it’s an Alexander Wang piece, we’re seeing a tougher take in black leather with perforated details. This bag will stay current for at least four seasons. It will then look fine, but anyone who buys it now will be sick of varsity/high end prep in a couple of years.
If you like the varsity trend but think this bag isn’t literal enough, check out this Alexander Wang clutch shaped like a floppy football.
