We're Loving: Alexander Wang's Black Velvet Backpack



    Kids today certainly have more stylish options for lugging their school junk than we ever did -- not that Alexander Wang's jet black plush velvet backpack is by any means a practical rucksack choice for, say, a third-grader. It is, however, the perfect fall bag for clutter-prone adults seeking a sleek, fuss-free satchel that can handle their heavy burden and still look fan-tabulous.

    With button-strap closures at the front and an extra-long satin drawstring, Mr. Wang's ultimate fall satchel is a truly elegant affair, and might even be perfect for all the fancy Fashion Week shindigs coming up next month -- or, at the very least, for dancing in front of the bedroom mirror.

    Alas, as we've come to expect from Wang's burgeoning accessories business, the price tag super steep at a whopping $775.  Hasn't the man ever heard of a back-to-school special? Sigh. For now, we'll just fantasize about all the 90's-esque Clueless ensembles we'd style with this bad boy. Those with money to burn can purchase the bag online at shopbop.com.
