Sometimes you don’t get things when you want them, but after a job that bears fruit. This is what happened with Alexander Wang and Arropame.
A bit over a year after moving to Bilbao, we have finally been able to include this American label in our selection of collections, created in 2005 by the prodigy Alexander Wang, when he was barely 20 years old.
Alexander Wang’s impact grew along with his long list of major awards, including the so-called «Oscars of Fashion«: the CFDA Award, won in 2009. His next big step forward came in 2012 when he was named the Creative Director at Balenciaga, where he took over for Nicolas Ghesquiere. In 2015 he left said firm to strike out on his own.
Alexander Wang reached the top by assimilating America’s urban and minimalist tradition. He has even been endorsed by the almighty Anne Wintour.
This week we present you with the best embodiment of the «Wang Spirit»: the Rocco Duffel, a leather bag that has become his trademark and is adored by celebrities like Sharon Stone, the Olsen sisters, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Emma Stone.
At our concept store: the Rocco and our complete capsule of iconic Alexander Wang bags, the «it-bag» of a fashion giant, now available in Bilbao, at Arropame …
