Alexander Wang Rocco vs Balenciaga City

The Alexander Wang Rocco is definitely the next great trend in handbags.  It is an all leather duffel that reminds us of the ever so iconic Louis Vuitton Speedy bag.  I purchased this bag on a whim, but decided that this was not the bag for me.  What I will do is post some interesting comparison pics between the Rocco and the City bag!

In regards to the weight, it is definitely heavier than the Classic City, but I think it's about the same if not a little heavier than the Giant Hardware City.  The heaviness in weight is contributed from all those rock n' roll studs on the bottom!  The leather is nice and thick, and the pebbled texture is really cool.  Definitely a chic bag right now because I've noticed a lot of celebrities sporting the Rocco.  I like that the price isn't as sky high as Balenciaga, so its somewhat affordable compared to Balenciaga's prices.  

This Rocco has black leather with the black studs on the bottom. I have not used this bag at all except to model it in these pics, so if you're interested in purchasing this off me, please send me an email.  Asking price is $650 firm, original price $875. Sold 7/27

ETA: Today 7/26, I'm lowering the price to $550! One day only! Please email me at if you're interested. 

So what do you think?  Is this bag on your wishlist?  I know a lot of Bal fans who own a few Alexander Wang accessories, so I wouldn't be surprised if you had one too! :)
