Alexander Wang Angela Pouchette Bag
WHAT: Alexander Wang Angela Pouchette Bag
WHY: The quest for your fall bag has begun, but don't neglect the little things in your handbag repertoire: the petite clutchables and wrist danglers that can give an outfit serious pizzaz. Fash wunderkind Alex Wang punched up this black pouchette with edgy touches like pebbled leather, a zip-around side closure, and an adjustable top handle with studded detail. It's the parfait way to transition back to black after a summer full of color. And how can you resist the gloriously badass, tightly aligned rose gold studs at base? This bag is perfect to fashion for work, and (perhaps more importantly) for play.
AVAILABLE: $650, Barneys.com
