Q. Who is Alexander Wang?
Wang is known for his edgy and somewhat masculine Womenswear designs. (more to come)
Q. What is the difference between a Rocco and a Coco?
The "Coco" was the original AW duffel bag. It came in black and has brass studs. The "Rocco" came out shortly after and had silver hardware. Now there is a new Rocco on the market with Black studs. In the beginning Brass = Coco // Silver/ Black= Rocco. Now they are all called Rocco due to legal reasons.
Q. What colors are produced every season?
I believe that black is produced every season and all other colors are seasonal.
Q. Where can I find discontinued colors or styles?
Sometimes stores have old stock but generally, eBay or consignment stores are the only places.
Q. What is the difference between the "mini" and the "baby" duffel bags?
The original size is the mini which is the largest of the two sizes. The baby was released early in the year of 2010 and is a couple inches smaller than the mini. Also, the mini has 5 rows of studs and the baby has 4 rows.
Q. Why do some duffel bags have straps and others do not?
The original Coco/ Rocco bag did not come with a strap. Early this year the mini and baby duffel bags were released with a detachable strap option. If you want a bag with a strap you must order one of the newer models. You cannot order straps separately and you cannot attach a strap to an older model.
Q. What is the best kind of leather?
Some bags come with smooth leather with minimal pebbling while others come with heavy pebbling. Most people prefer the super pebbly bags however it is up to you to decide what you enjoy most. The great thing about AW is that there is such a variety to choose from.
