Honestly, today was the FIRST TIME EVER Mom and I have gone serious bag shopping together, today was for my bag. Mom got hers first yesterday at Homme et Femme, Shangrila Mall and out of the blue she wanted to treat me. So let’s begin waxing bag poetic with Mom’s more-than-meets-the-eye Alexander Wang laser-cut Rocco duffel. It comes in a shade called “parchment” which is a soft, almost white gray with a touch of beige warmth.

It looks plain enough when you first see it, but what is mind-blowing about the AW Rocco is the texture. It’s an exceedingly roomy leather bag laser-cut with uniform micro shredding. It’s a bit addictive running your fingertips back and forth across it. What you get is a velvety texture almost like suede but with more body and the sudden ambush of studs underneath (like terracotta warriors) is like the most unexpected come-on ever, don’t you think? It’s clear why Mom zeroed in on this one like a heat-seeking missile. Now, for the Kate Spade procession and what I got. Read more to see what I chose from the Kate Spade boutique in Greenbelt 3.
