A studded handbag is nothing new trend-wise, but it’s a solid choice if you’re ever looking for a new purse with some edge. Add that detail onto a silhouette that’s usually for bags you would carry to the gym or for a quick overnight trip (the duffel) and you’ve struck a balance of being effortlessly cool. Alexander Wang is clearly the purveyor of this particular Downtown style. His studded accessories are still highly coveted since his very first runway show. And with such success, the imitations follow. Can you tell which handbag costs $860 more than the other?
Answer: The studded handbag on the left is an Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel ($925) and the one on the right is the Nasty Gal Knox Studded Satchel ($65). Wang debuted his Rocco bag in 2009 and since then, pebbled leather-and-studded satchels and handbags have tried to follow suit. Did you guess correctly? Which bag do you like better?
