Discover RUNin2.com selection of bags and backpacks by Alexander Wang. Born 1983, Wang is an American fashion designer. At age 18, he moved to New York City to attend Parsons The New School for Design to study fashion design. After dropping out in his sophomore year, he launched his first women's ready-to-wear collection in 2007. The label embodies casually cool downtown style, drawing inspiration from the nineties, French chic, and rock grunge—always finished off with a slouchy, rolled-out-of-bed edge. How about the iconic Rockie trunk or Diego bucket bag? Always trimmed with the essential stud detailing. He won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2008.
