Alexander Wang has certainly undergone some changes this last season. I find it interesting that he has been trading in his heavy studs for simple corner plates (much like those you would find on trunks or hard sided luggage). This hardware appeared on the Small Emile Tote, which I wrote about not too long ago. But here we are seeing this hardware again, although it is on a style that is vastly different from the one mentioned above. It’s called the Alexander Wang Adele Fold-Over Trunk Clutch and, if you ask me, I think the style is much more fitting for the hardware in question.
The hardware, however, was not the only thing that caught my attention with this bag. I also love the intriguing 2-for-1 design. You can carry this clutch unfolded, for a “lunch tote” sort of look. Or you can fold the clutch over and actually hold it so that the “bottom” is facing outward. I love how the hardware is brought front and center when the clutch is carried in this manner. It is certainly a unique look! Plus I love the look of smooth, dove grey leather paired with nickel hardware. A very neutral piece, but perfect for transitioning between day and night!
