Hot Off the Runway: This Heat-Activated Alexander Wang Bag

Well, that was fast! Traditionally, it takes six months for runway looks to make their way into stores. But ever the non-traditional (he did showcase his fall 2014 collection in Brooklyn, after all), Alexander Wang cut the lead time completely for one of his ready-to-wear accessories, making it available for purchase just days after his show. The thermo-reactive black calf leather Alexander Wang bag is sensitive to heat (like a mood ring!), transforming into a citron hue upon contact-a feature played out during Wang's super high-tech show with heat-activated leather clothes. The 'Chastity' makeup pouch comes with a rhodium snake chain handle and a detachable mirror.




And at $375, the bag is yours, thanks to an exclusive partnership struck between the designer and, a social shopping app that lets users explore a curated collection of goods. Naturally, the bag sold out rather quickly, but don't worry bagophiles (and AlexWang-ophiles), we got the dirt straight from the source that more bags are expected to come in by the end of the week. So, keep your eyes peeled!
