SHE’S HERE!!! I told you the Darcy would be my new Fall bag 🙂
My bag arrived yesterday literally as I was walking out the door, so I ripped open the package as fast as I could and hurridly shifted everything from my straw tote to Darcy and ran out the door. First thing I noticed was how light she is, compared to Rocco/Coco, and to my Linea Pelle bag. Even with all my stuff inside, she is incredibly easy to carry on my shoulder – she just fits so well, like she belongs there 😉
The Darcy is smaller than other hobos I have, and you really can’t get into her while carrying her on your shoulder, like I can with the Donna hobo, but she’s really easy to get into otherwise, and again, really really easy to carry on my shoulder. The leather is pebbled like my Rocco, but softer because of the style of the bag, it is much less structured, but still sits nicely on a table or on the floor because of the feet.
She has one inside pocket that’s pretty deep, so it holds a lot (my phone, camera and keys usually) and the bag itself holds a ton – more than you’d think. But still, what I love the most about the Darcy is how easy she is to carry and the “luggage” color/leather. Alexander Wang hit it out of the park again – love the simplicity of his bags, and the attention to detail, but also the little additions (rows and rows of studs) that make them all unique.
You can find the Darcy at Satine where you can use code “grechens10” for 10%, and at Shopbop. I know…I promised a longer list of where to buy, and you will have it, but I seem to be always running out the door lately, so I’ll have to finish that up later 🙂
Yay! Thanks for posting this review & pics! I love love LOVE it on you! I just pulled the trigger on the darcy in black at saks. (Just a tip for anyone else ready to get one now: go thru bing cashback for 10% back & use code JUL2010 for a $50 gc!)

Grechen thanks sharing pictures of your new Darcy. I also order my new handbag in black. Now, I should had went with the luggage color.

I love how you speak of “her” as though your Darcy is a person!! lol…I guess that means you’ll take really good care of her.
she is an extension of me…for now anyway 🙂

Hi, just purchased the Darcy hobo as well in luggage (used but in wonderful condition!) I was wondering if you used any product to treat your bag? I’ve read some of the apple leather products work amazing.. Thanks!

I have used apple products before although not on my Alexander wangs. It’s very good
