Alexander Wang Tai Dopp Kit Bag
This one gives a whole new meaning to the ‘boxy’ bag, meet the Tai Dopp Kit Bag by Alexander Wang. It almost sounds industrial and it sure does have the looks to support that idea. If it weren’t for the word ‘bag’ at the end, I would have never referred to it as one. I see a closer resemblance to my Sephora makeup train case than I do to my favorite structured accessory, of course it’s like four times smaller as well.
If you’re looking for something vintage inspired, this definitely fits the theme, but I wouldn’t be quick to call this comfortable, as its interior room is limited as its top handle length is as well (that’s a 2” drop to be exact). With such boxy dimensions and structured leather you can easily replace your current evening clutch with this not-so-common looking piece.
Still curious about how this bag functions, a clasp reveals a hinged frame, feet at the base to protect the bottom leather from scuffs, and the gold antiqued hardware makes this Wang look like an authentic thrift shop find, or a hand-me-down from grandma. The Tai Dopp is most definitely original; I can only imagine what reasons you may use this designer leather box for. I do know that $750 will get you this Wang and you can get your hands on it through the online shops of: Shopbop
