Alexander Wang Teams Up With Judith Leiber For Bag

From Harper’s BAZAAR

Known for his cool kid-approved streetwear, Alexander Wang is stepping outside his realm and getting a luxe upgrade for Spring 2018. The designer teamed up with Judith Leiber for a limited-edition, Swarovski-encrusted bag (that’s shaped like a stack of $100 bills, of course).

As WWD reports, the minaudière is made of 10,263 black, gunmetal, green and clear Swarovski crystals. Accentuated with a real industrial rubber band and chain strap, the kistchy bag takes an entire week to hand-bead to completion. Purchasing it, however, will require an actual stack of $100 bills (and then some), as it costs a cool $4,995.

The collaboration with Leiber will make its official debut on Wang’s Spring 2018 runway this September, but there’s a catch: it will be produced in an extremely limited quantity of only 20. Members of the #WangSquad better act fast.

The Alexander Wang x Judith Leiber bag will be available at the Alexander Wang New York and London stores, Saks Fifth Avenue and alexanderwang.com in November.
