Of all the designer handbags I have seen while blogging over the past seven years, these have to be some of the most interesting. Alexander Wang debuted glow in the dark designer handbags for Spring 2013! Normally I’d think glow in the dark anything was just a fun trend to try for Halloween. But Alexander Wang has really taken it to a designer level. And the former scientist in me is equally excited as the handbag lover in me.
Alexander Wang’s new cowhide handbags feature rhodium, a rare element and a silvery-white, hard and durable metal that has a high reflectance. After leaving the bags under direct light for a recommended 1 hour, they begin to glow in the dark! So geeky, cool and chic!
So far, the Alexander Wang bags that have gotten the rhodium/glow in the dark treatment are the ‘GLOW IN THE DARK AGATA‘, the ‘GLOW IN THE DARK TRI-FOLD BAG‘, ‘GLOW IN THE DARK PRISMA TOTE‘, ‘GLOW IN THE DARK PELICAN SLING‘, the ‘GLOW IN THE DARK MARION WITH RHODIUM‘ and the ‘GLOW IN THE DARK PRISMA FLAT POUCH‘. I’d love to see a Rocco Duffel that glows in the dark.
