Hi, I was wondering if someone could help authenticate this Alexander Wang Diego bag, its in Blue - a dark midnight blue with silver hardwear.

Item: Alexander Wang Diego bucket bag
Listing number: This is the listing i bought it from: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333985443542 OR use this link https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alexander-Wang-Diego-Bucket-Stud-Bag-Crossbody-Excellent-Condition-Genuine-/333985443542?nma=true&si=eDyyFM5WOKTNI%2BBnAYedLLRXpFM%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
Seller: Ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/i-luv-designer?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

Comments: I am not sure how many colours thig bag came in and if there was actually a mini or smaller version made as the base studs on the bag i bought start at 3 in a row whilst from online youtube pics and vids it seems to start at 7 in a row? Also dust bag has label at the top near drawstring whilst I have seen the label at the bottom end and inside stitching isn't good. The zip pully i'm not sure of either it has ykk printed on the side, i would have thought it would have AW stamp. I just received it so would love to know asap if its a fake! I have put a standard sized book next to it for scale.

I have been away from AW for awhile but the color reminds me of Neptune.

The patch/label on the dust bag is normal. I have had some bags that had the label at the bottom and others near the top.

The Diego did come in 2 sizes that I can recall…regular and small. The examples that I am finding online that match your bag’s studs are smalls.

This forum does not have an authenticator. So, I am posting some old listings below of bags with similar stud arrangements…that way you can take a look and decide.

Thank you this is really helpful! I couldn't find anywhere on google search the smaller size but now that I have looked specifically for the colour neptune it does seem to appear in results.

I was wondering if the bag also came with 4 studs across please? As have seen a few like this? See this example: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303651786182?hash=item46b30e8dc6:g:H5QAAOSwACRfVUBy

The link you referenced has a bag with 3 studs across.

I have seen 4 studs across and I believe you will see that on the regular sized Diego in Neptune.

It would help if these sellers would list dimensions.

From image 5 of that listing there are photos of the bag itself instead of screenshots from the internet. They give very vague dimensions of 25cm, I agree, not very helpful!

I had to return the neptune as it had damage that wasn't mentioned in the listing but I think it was legit in the end!

Hello, has anyone bought an AW Diego bag with this colour lining? I am trying to buy a Diego in red with silver studs and the ones I have found all have black lining (as well as all of the other diego bags I have seen) except for this one? So I am not sure if this bag is authentic and don't think I can have it authenticated by Vestiaire due to Brexit restrictions on shipping so will need direct shipping.

The bags you listed previously were lambskin. This bag is calfskin. The lining is not a red flag. Here is an example:
