Mini Rockie still "in"?

  1. Megs and I welcomed our baby boy earlier this month and wanted to share the news with the TPF community. Come say hello to Baby Vaughn!

  1. I've been eyeing this style for years! Since I've seen the regular sized Rockie.. I didn't know they came out with a mini until I googled it last month. I managed to score one in black + rose gold HW at Nordstrom Rack for $350 CAD! I actually have not seen anyone with the Rockie in Toronto, so I'm just wondering - is this style on it's way out? I absolutely love the size of the mini.
     
  2. Great deal! No, I really believe the AW Rockie/Rocco line is a classic that will be around a long time. Roccos were introduced over 10 years ago, and though Wang doesn’t make that size anymore, Rockies and Minis are still made every season and the one you got still shows up on his website under “classics” for $650 US!

    In general though, AW bags are not as common as many other brands, so I’m not surprised you haven’t seen one in TO. Enjoy it, and know you are carrying an under-the-radar classic that true fashion lovers will recognize.
     
  3. I actually live in Toronto and just bought one in white with rose gold hardware from Fashion Phile. I have been eyeing it for years, but with too many black bags, I didnt want another, so when I saw the white and rose gold combo online, I decided to get it.
     
  4. I really do think that Alexander Wang's Rocco's and Rockie's are definitely a classic but a timeless design as its basically a duffle bag and that design will never be "not in". I have one Rocco in Cola (red) and two Rockies in silver and metallic teal. I had to get more than one as I knew I would wear them to death.
    My plan was to get a Black Rocco and Rockie and use them for weekend breaks as a travel set (and as handbags in between). I cannot carry an LV keepall (that just sits in the wardrobe in between trips) as its too much weight focused in one place. I can carry the Rockie crossbody and the Rocco as hand luggage and therefore my luggage never gets lost and I look extra stylish instead of like the six million other chicks at the airport with wearing a neverfull.
     
  5. As a person who has never even considered buying the Rocco or Rockies for myself, I would definitely agree with that it will never look "out". The shape is so classic that it just looks like an edgy duffel bag! It definitely had a peak in popularity with bloggers, but I think unlike other it-bags, this bag will not look dated.
     
  6. Just saw this morning the mini Rockies are on sale in Australia at David Jones, brand new AU$510. If you know anyone over here?
    edit- its the baby one which is tiny 18x12x12 cm, but soo cute
