It’s hip, it’s now, and it’s one my of 10 signature picks. Introducing the Alexander Wang Rocco Mini, an all-leather frame bag that looks like the angst-ridden younger sister of the Speedy/Boston. Spotted in the arms of celebrities from Rihanna to Mary-Kate Olsen, variations of Rocco to date include bags in different colours with the accompanying studs in gold or silver.
Net-A-Porter US for example has a version now in black stamped leather with glossy black studs (measuring 32 cm by 31 cm) that’s retailing for USD875 (around SGD1250 or so). Unfortunately they do not ship internationally, so for those living outside outside of the States, check out Shopbop. They’ve got the same version with free international 3-day delivery.
And that’s not all. Shopbop has 2 more variations on offer, including a suede one in Camel (so very in for F/W10) at just USD870, and a Rocco Baby (slightly smaller than the Rocco Mini) at just USD695. And they both come with free international shipping as well, so what’s stopping you?
Before I sign off, here’s a quick word of caution. Though you can also purchase the same bag off Net-A-Porter UK (which does shop internationally), it is currently priced at GBP791 over there (around SGD1670 or so). So it definitely makes more economical sense to purchase off Shopbop instead.
