Ladies (and guys with petite frames) looking for a backpack that’s more grown-up and easy on the eyes should most definitely check out the Alexander Wang Prisma Skeletal Backpack, almost 30 cm in height and measuring 12.7 cm across. Made of leather and sporting bevelled detailing on the front flap and the brand’s signature Prisma Skeletal corners on the base of the bag, this particular one that’s shown above in both smooth and distressed calf is part grunge, part chic and all Wang.
Priced at USD1252, you can now get it online via Alexander Wang where they ship internationally, or check out the Alexander Wang boutique at Hilton Shopping Gallery (or On Pedder, they may have it) before you commit. A word of caution though, I do expect it to be a tad heavy since it’s all leather, so maybe it won’t do so well with ladies who don’t want to end up with a workout every time they bring it out. For everyone else wanting a chic (and more affordable) alternative to The Row’s very expensive backpacks, this would be it.
And if the grunge-meets-chic combination isn’t really your thing, they’ve got a calfskin one priced at USD1226, in Latte with gold-tone hardware that’s very ladylike and just divine.
