Totally Alexander Wang, for sure (this couldn’t be by anyone else, not with that shape and hardware). But I’m certainly not seeing what’s chaste about this hot bag. Maybe the snake chain, which we’ve seen before as straps on his Brenda bag, is supposed to keep you from straying too far? Or at least scare intruders off from getting personal with your possessions.
As much as I enjoy the built exterior – a bowler with a flared gusset is just a bit different, without being difficult – and the funky “chastity” chain that goes with it, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The best part is the interior: it’s got two separated compartments with a divider so even though it’s a bag on the bigger side, there’s nothing overwhelming about it. Suddenly, thanks to Alexander and his Jaime, it’s hip to be chaste. Ever-ironic, you know that Wang knows this bag is for the girl on the go who gets what she wants and some of what she isn’t expecting – which is precisely what she wanted in the first place! At Saks Fifth Avenue for $925.
