Wang Bag Collection Launches on Ebay
New York-based Alexander Wang is the latest designer to use Ebay's Fashion Vault, launching his Autumn/Winter 2011-12 bag collection on the online auction site tomorrow. Following the likes of Jason Wu and Narciso Rodriguez – both of whom used the Ebay outlet to launch cut-price collections – the bags from Wang's latest collection will be available for 24 hours on the US version of Ebay.
The small, palm-sized clutches and purses are an elegant design move for Wang, who recently won the Accessory Designer of the Year gong at the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards. Four of the purses and clutches seen on the runway for A/W 2011-12 will be available on the site, including the Mini Adriel grey ostrich purse, and the Compact Quillon blush metallic leather purse.
The bags go on sale tomorrow (Friday 17th June). Unlike the majority of Ebay items, the prices of the bags will be fixed, ranging from $235 to $525. Shipping is only available within the US.
