Alexander Wang Says Love the Skin You’re In. Or Change It.
Ever since the now confirmed rumors broke that Alexander Wang would succeed Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga, it’s been hard to talk about anyone else. That trend continues today, but not for the reason you might expect. The 28-year-old designer has revealed his newest It bag: the Pelican Sling. The convertible cross-body leather pouch is super-versatile, particularly because, with four interchangeable coverlets in stingray, ostrich, watersnake, and eel, it’s five looks in one. But don’t get too too excited. The covers, which range from $275 to $975, are sold separately and will be available starting this week exclusively at Wang’s Soho flagship and at Isetan in Tokyo. Some assembly required.
