A problem that a lot of us have these days is that we have just so much stuff. That is why in the last couple of years there has been a real hunger for designer handbags that are roomy enough to hold all those things that we want to carry around with us. One new bag that seems to have caught the current zeitgeist is the Alexander Wang Marti Backpack. This is a sufficiently large bag and some would say that it is ideal for the modern world.

The problem in the past for busy people who are also lovers of designer handbags is finding something that is both big and beautiful. We always seem to associate sophistication with petite. Well, recently there have been a few bags that have managed to prove that big can be beautiful as well and the Alexander Wang Marti Backpack is a great example of this. In fact there are some who are saying that this is the best bag yet from the Taiwanese designer. This is debatable but there is no doubt that this backpack is both functional and appealing to the eye. Read more

The Taiwanese fashion designer Alexander Wang likes his designs to be noticed, and he has certainly managed to make an impression with the spring collection for 2011. The theme this season is straps; a lot of them. If you don’t like your handbags to be covered with extra bits then you will want to steer well clear of this collection; they are everywhere. Some might claim that all these straps make the bag look a bit messy, but there is no doubt that they are funky. When you also consider that this designer handbag cost around $1,000, there is good reason to expect these Alexander Wang creations to be a huge success.

So what is it with all the straps? Well, it seems that Alexander Wang feels that we just don’t have enough of these in our life and he is trying to rectify this. It appears, unless I’m missing something, that over ninety percent of the straps on this bag serve no practical purpose... On the other hand, there is no doubt that this strappy design gives the bags a unique look. The only thing that would worry me is that all those straps are going to tangle.

I think this strappy collection of bags is going to divide fans into those who adore them and those that just don’t get it or care. I’m somewhere in the middle; this is a bag that I could see my self wearing now and then, but I wonder if the bag would just start to look a bit ragged, or if my cleaner's would clean...
