Alexander Wang - Rockie Duffle Review

on
Thursday, August 23, 2012
My latest addition, which was purchased before my shopping ban. [No fashion-related items from August to December. Eeek!] Enjoy.

Color: Cayenne
 
Smaller and lighter than the Rocco, with an interesting fold-over zip opening. I wanted a new purse that could fit my wallet, keys, and cell, but not kill my shoulders. My Alexander Wang Millie Satchel (previous post here) is super heavy & quite big. Good for school and lugging an ipad/laptop/DSLR - not so much for casual use.


The pebbled leather, studded bottom, and double secret compartments are still conserved from the original Rocco design. 

Below is the holy grail of leather protectors according to PurseForum. I didn't want another black bag, and I knew this color would easily get jean stains, or end up staining my white blouses & tees. If it doesn't live up to its claims I will mention it in a post.

Annnd one more just for kicks.  I adore this little muffin!

  8. This bag is beautiful! I've always wanted the Rocco but I've heard it's very heavy on it's own because of the studs. This bag looks like perfection though!

  14. Hi I just picked up this bag! LOvE! I was wondering how the leather protector worked? I'm so paranoid about color transfer that I haven't worn it out of my apartment.

  15. The bag's fold-over zip opening feature allows you to protect the contents of your bag whilst having an easy access to a clear view of the interiors of your bag so you won't have to go scavenger hunting every time you needed something. And with its studded bottom it helps reassure you that your bag is protected from any dirt while still looking fab as ever.

  16. Brenda! Sorry for the late response. Just realized there was a comment on this post now. The leather protector has worked pretty great so far. No jean stains on my bag, and no red marks on my clothes. I recommend it!
