New in - Alexander Wang Rockie

My latest bag which I picked up in Las Vegas is the Alexander Wang Rockie. The smaller brother to the famous and much loved Rocco.

I originally wanted black but seeing the smooth leather was slightly put off and it only came in brass hardware at the time which I didn't want. I soon as I spied this version in Barneys I knew this was the one! The colour is Iodine a dark rich purple/aubergine a bit like squid ink with pewter hardware and a long body strap as well as the two arm handles.

It fits in as much as I need - tablet, wallet, mobile, make-up bag and has two phone pockets and an inner zip. The Rockie is heavy for a smaller bag but compared to the Rocco alot lighter. If anyone has picked up a Rocco you'll know how heavy they are without anything in. The zip is slightly different curving over the top of the bag instead of straight across meaning it's easier to put things in and take out.

The quality of the leather is beautiful, look at the pebbling on it and it's tough too.

As you can tell i'm pretty smitten with my new buy and you'll see it coming up in an outfit post very soon!
